    I have not believed in coincidence since I was saved. But I was wondering if there ever is a time when something is just "coincidence"?

    No. God is in total control of everything. Nothing happens by chance.

    As a child of God, I don't think anything that happens to me is a coincidence.

    God has perfect timing and He is still in control.

    I think coincidence is a word non-believers use to explain away things they don't want (or are unable) to believe.

    Coincidence is simply two things happening at the same time without regard to each other. They happen all the time. The fact that we recognize that sometimes God uses them to His glory is an added bonus of being a Christian.

    Coincidence is contingent upon perspective.

    What to a human looks like a coincidence is in reality the Providence of God.

    Coincidence is the atheist way of saying there is no God in charge of timing.

    No such thing as coincidence, just "God-incidence" [​IMG]

    No such thing as coincidence or luck, either. My steps are ordered by the Lord. Praise His Name! [​IMG]
