Maybe He Should Pray for a Better Theological Education

Someone at TWeb nominated a story here for a Screwball Award, which deserves notice here on the Forge as well...

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson blamed God for dropping a game-winning touchdown in a 19-16 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Johnson was reluctant to accept responsibility for the gaffe, posting on his Twitter account post-game that it was in fact God's fault.
"I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO...," Johnson tweeted.
Can't wholly blame Johnson for this, though, since our churches teach such a sorry theology of prayer. We've set it up so that a belief that God micromanages even a football game is "rational".
And to think yesterday we noted that some moron Skeptic couldn't figure out the dangers of thinking the Bible in your lap was inerrant....duh huh....
