I’ve never been so overwhelmed with such overwhelming problems in my life.
And I was planning to write a post contradicting a Bible verse that I’ve just found does not even exist.
In the past, my mom has told me the Apostle Paul wrote that God would not give us more problems than we could bear.
I never liked Paul, even when I was a devout Christian–so many of his teachings contradicted Jesus’ teachings!
So I was going to especially take pleasure in contradicting Paul!
But I first had to find the Bible verse on which my mom’s claim (probably something she had heard from someone else) was based.
And I’ve found it.
And in fairness to Paul, it does not state that God will not give us more problems than we can bear.
It’s 1 Corinthians 10 : 13, and it reads thus:
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
In other words, according to Paul, God will not give us more temptation than we can bear. Not problems, but temptation.
So the prosecution rests.
