You Won’t Find Low Priced Homes In Neighborhoods With Better Schools — Orange County Isn’t Cook County — Did God Appoint Some To Get A Silver Spoon And Others The Hood?

According to Neighborhood Scout, Northwood High, 4515 Portola Parkway, Irvine, CA 92620, ranks as the 80th best school in America; while Robeson High School, 6835 S Normal Blvd, Chicago, IL 60621, ranks as the sixth worst school in America. And Wallet Pop ranks this the 25th most dangerous neighborhood in America.

To live in the better school district, one needs to shell out good money. For example, the home at 26 Jefferson Irvine, CA 92620, lists for $589,000; it’s typical of the 108 listed on Redfin.  City Data reports that home prices have fallen from peak in 2006 at 780K to today’s 620K; a decrease of approximately 25%.

Does God set an appointed time and place for each individual to live. In other words, did he appoint some to get the silver spoon and live in upper middle class comfort; and pick others to live in Chicago at the junction of two expressways, I90 and I55?

If God chooses where one lives; is it “un-fair” that one get assigned to an inferior school district?

Is it “right” that God create a better school and send one there? 

As for me, “I speak where the Bible speaks and am silent where the bible is silent”; and I relate God’s Word below which relates his sovereignty. 

Job 7:1, Is there not an appointed time to a man upon the earth?

Ecclesiastes 3:1, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.

Acts 13:48 Only those appointed to eternal life believe.

Acts 17:26, God appointes the time of one’s life, and the boundaries of one’s habitation.

If by God’s decision, one gets the silver spoon, and another adversity, does one have the right to either boast in his good fortune, or despair in his difficulties?

Libertarians believe they are sovereign individuals; well sorry, that is a mis-perception of the truth, as all the bible verses above establish God as sovereign.
