  1. Alan,

    You’re probably already aware of the Biblical misappropriation represented by the “someecards” placard you posted above, but in case you’re not, and because it’s such an oft-repeated error, I like to point out the following every time I encounter it: Nowhere in the Bible is it stated that “God will never give you more than you can handle.” The closest the Bible comes to making such a ridiculous claim is in 1 Corinthians 10:13, which states that God will not tempt you beyond what you can bear.

    I say ridiculous because, if God does give, God frequently gives more than what one or another can bear. Witness suicides, homicides, etc.

    Take care, be well, and happy Blogging!

      Thanks Denny.
      The full quote is:
      1 Corinthians 10:13King James Version (KJV)
      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.
