Sarah Sanders: "God wanted Trump to become president."

Sarah Sanders: "God wanted Trump to become president."

So how does this work? Is whoever wins the person God wanted to win? So did God previously want Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to win too? Does this just apply to the presidency or are all elected officials the ones that God wants? Did he want Nancy Pelosi to be speaker of the House? Did he want Northam to be governor of Virginia? If it applies to history in general why would Sanders have bothered to claim it for Trump? And how does she know? Wouldn't this mean that God overrules free elections? Doesn't that contradict the free will theodicy and the laws of nature? I mean if God is going to intervene in America's elections, why doesn't he just intervene to eliminate evil all together?

Ridiculous!!

This is why it is so critical to ensure the reality that
'God is an impossibility to be real'.
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=193474&hilit=god+impossibility#p2683202

When people understand why God is an impossibility to be real, then the above question is a moot and a non-starter.

The idea of God existing is merely due to existential psychological impulses within the person.

In any case, I don't think Trump is a genuine theist but rather an opportunist for political interests.
I am a progressive human being, a World Citizen, NOT-a-theist and not religious.

It's a cheap appeal to idiots. It's not supposed to make sense. It's just supposed to make them hear God and Trump in the same sentence.
