God won't intervene with world hunger but he'll intervene in baseball?

Well God is Omniscient so his mind is infinitely greater than ours so there is no way our finite minds can grasp the reasons for everything he does. Not until we have a better understanding in heaven.

Au contraire. Our finites mines are perfectly capable of grasping the reasons for what he does. He's a fictional character created by a multitude of other finite minds over hundreds of years, resulting in many different actions and personality traits that outright contradict each other. As a result, other finite minds that for whatever reason are invested in the idea that he's totally real try to reconcile these gaping character inconsistencies with the "mysterious ways" bullshit. It's basically the religious equivalent of "a wizard did it".

See? Perfectly graspable.

According to most branches Christianity God gave humans free will. Claiming that God would interfere with this by making a specific team win a sporting event is saying that God took away free will from humans. That's heresy.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

In the Bible God interfered in battles to help the Israelites win so it is not heresy to say that he would help the Red Sox win to reward me for converting back to Catholicism.

So there wasn't a single Roman Catholic in the LA Dodger's side who's faith needed reaffirming?

Pray tell, why would God personally pick out the guy who believes in Wizards from parallel universes who faps to the Gap catalogue to reaffirm their faith? No accounting for taste but wouldn't Yahweh be better off barracking for someone who can actually net him a few converts?

Because I am the guy who will cause Christendom to be restored in Europe when restoring the true heir to the throne of England and his other thrones..

Yeah, if God was that ambitious he would have picked someone more competent-or done it himself. Omnipotence and all that.

I am competent. Eventually I will found a secret society that will eventually fulfill the plan.

Anyway, did you read my horror story for Halloween where you and Art Vandelay are the main characters?

Competence is not awarded on what you're "going to do."

It is if God knows that I can do it competently.

All the all knowing presumably would know is that your plan depends on getting others to follow you. I.E. it's dependent on your charisma and social intelligence.

This is a bad plan. This plan is not good.
