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.

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.  Sad

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.
