The media has really attached themselves to the story about Ashley Smith talking down Brian Nichols by reading the Purpose Driven Life to him. He allows her to leave, she calls the police, and he is taken into custody. There are some who are saying that all this unfolded according to God's plan. Is that correct or not?
John MacArthur said, "It's an incredibly wonderful story of how God used a borken lady to stop a guy who could have killed again and again." But he cautioned against interpreting the incicent as an "unfolding God's plan," because no one really knew enough about the two people, what really happened between them and whether they truly committed themselves to God. What do you think?
