"Yeah, the Japanese fighters tried to bomb the HI temple, but every time they did, their bomb doors would jam shut, and their machine guns would jam".

But did God ever see fit to alleviate the suffering of all those Filipinos involved in the conflict, including innocent children and sick people and good, honest folk who just wanted to live their lives in peace? I guess protecting a building is more important than protecting his children. Or something.

For true believers in miracles, it doesn't matter how bad things get, there's ALWAYS a "miracle" to be found somewhere. So even when a Mormon temple burned down, the faithful found a way to praise God:

"Despite concern that the fire would spread to surrounding buildings in the Church complex, no other buildings sustained damage. [Samoa] Temple president Daniel Betham reported that it began to rain quite heavily about 30 minutes after the fire began, and that likely preserved the other structures, he said. The adjacent buildings include a meetinghouse, a family history center, temple patron housing, a service center, the mission home, and the Church’s College of Western Samoa.

“'We could feel the heat and sparks go all over the place, and all of a sudden it rained. We thought it was a miracle,' said President Betham, who has served in the temple presidency for 11 years.

"Members have also looked to the smoke-stained angel Moroni as another symbol of hope amidst the devastation. The statue held its place atop the charred frame of the temple and did not fall.

“'Their hope is not gone, because the angel Moroni is still there,' said Sister Olivia King, who along with her husband, Jerry, directs public affairs for the Pacific Islands Area."

As a TBM, temple going mormon, I learned that Satan is "the god of this world." He wants to protect his vested interests. ;-)
