I must say that I agree with the above statements. God does not have a plan for everyone. 16,000 children die of starvation related causes every single day. But some people do have a special calling...

How do you know that dying of starvation is not a part of their plan?  God's plans are not chiefly designed for the physical world, but rather the salvation of souls.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

Interesting how the moderator cut this post of my out of someone's thread and made a new thread out of it. But whatever you want to do...

I was also confused by this. I thought maybe you had posted it separately yourself, but I didn't understand that either. I don't recall/see anything about the split though. Was it possibly a forum hiccup (though that also seems unlikely)?

As a Christian, I need to be more charitable, to widows, orphans, and those in need.  :(

No.  The only reason this would seem a ghastly comment is if you don't realize that God is concerned with eternal salvation far more than physical life.
