I've always thought it was a foolish statement.A terminal patient has been given more than they can handle.

re: "God won't put you through anything you can't handle."


The bible promises an afterlife for those that accept Jesus. It doesn't promise happiness, health or wealth. People assume God should give them everything they need but get mad when he takes something away. I am no stranger to horrible tragedy and hated God for it but now I understand how selfish that is. This life is the beginning not the end.

The statement should end that you shouldn't try to handle things alone but turn to God for help. Most of us never do and that is why we don't understand tragedy. But we are not meant to either.

I don't believe in the hope of an afterlife, therefore everything we do here is the most important thing you will EVER do. You will will not be rewarded for great acts nor suffer for devious ones, rather you will suffer with yourself and how your actions make you feel here in the now. It's also how you are remembered. Serial killers who "repent" at the last second do not deserve kindness bestowed upon them.

If you cannot bear the burdens cast upon you, shed them, or get stronger.

re: "God won't put you through anything you can't handle."


Religion always seems to be a popular topic on here though.


And I don't think God purposely puts me through tough situations to "toughen" me up. Life is full of good times and bad times. It is easy for one to praise God during the good times, but it is one who has true faith, that can still praise Him during the bad. In spite of all the stressors I have had thrown on me the past month, my faith never wavered. If anything, it only drew me closer to Him.

God is sovereign and sometimes life absolutely sucks. The Bible never promises that you'll have "your best life now" (idiot) On the contrary believers are guaranteed hard times and it is only future hope that gets us through those times.

2 Corinthians 4:17 (English Standard Version)

17For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison

the above verse sums it up. Im done here. thanks for your time.

oh and yes, a loved one dying or you getting your leg cut off or whatever you can think of is considered a momentary light affliction compared to the eternal weight of glory.

Nurse, I don't believe, but I admire your grace. With your faith, you have persevered through troubled times. Different hope for different folks.

I think this is the actual bible verse you are remembering and you can see there is a difference.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Translate??? Not really, but could we remove the whole talking salamander who was turned into a snake, and men challenged by god to KILL their children, just to prove their faith, then HAHA, stopped at the last second, and condense it into something palatable that teaches you to love one another? Like the Tao?
