I heard so many times in church how "amazing" pain and suffering really is and how when bad stuff happens its actually a " blessing in disguise" and how God lets us suffer as a way to " bring us closer to him" but when I think about things like little kids getting painful cancers and being beaten and things like the holocaust or a person who is in so much emotional pain they feel they do not have any choice but to commit suicide I just don't have a good feeling about it I mean if I were God I would NEVER let assholes like Hitler come into power or let someone hurt so bad they kill themselves so they could become " closer to me" and it doesn't help when I hear tbms say that there hardest trial in life was having there computer crash or how they got dumped ONCE or how they were sick in bed for a WHOLE MONTH I even heard one tbm say one time that her brother had been through such a hard trial cause he had such a bad ear ache one time I'm not even kidding!
I mean don't get me wrong ear aches aren't fun but they sort of pale in comparison to the holocaust if ya ask me! And I'm not saying that tbms don't have horrible things happen to them some of them definitely do its just mind boggeling to me how some people can act like a computer crashing down is a horrible "trial" my tbm friend told me that actually that her computer crashed and she said a prayer to heavenly father telling him "she just couldn't handle this trial and needed his help and he helped fix it and how amazing it was and how through that experience she "knows" of gods love through "trials" And I just wanted to say well what about the girl who killed herself? Was God really to busy fixing your damn computer to help her out of the horrible pain she was in so she wouldn't have to freaking kill herself?! I just don't get how people can compare computer crashes and bad colds that last for a WHOLE MONTH to people who actually are suffering really really bad.
I'm sorry for complaining I just have never liked the whole lds "oh pain and suffering is so beautiful!" Crap and I really don't get how horrible pain is essential for people to go through especially when some peoples trials are the holocaust and others are computer crashes ya computer crashes really compare let me tell ya! Is it just me or do the mormon "pain and suffering is great! :)" teachings bother anyone else?
