I did...??? I don’t see how cancer can be considered fortunate, except to those that have survived. Certainly not to those that haven’t survived, currently have it, or their families. I think if you were so callous as to poll those poor people in chemo wards, sitting there for hours with that poison dripping in them, day after day, or to a terminal ward, you would be very hard pressed to find anyone that was thankful for having cancer.

I wasn't talking about cancer in my answer, I was responding to what you said in that particular post. And if you googled that phrase, and read the theology about it, it would have taken you much longer. But since you mention cancer, and say how can it be fortunate?...all is gift, good, bad, sickness, suffering, happiness, contentment. God has a reason for allowing the things He allows to happen. And no, He doesn't explain everything because we're too stupid. Who is like unto God?
