I was thinking over a response to this thread when it got moved over here to FS&T. I had to track it down. I guess the mods didn't find an adequate
conspiracy angle. Still a relevant thread, imo.
did God abandon
As far as I know, this doesn't happen. My understanding is our sins separate us from God. I'm not saying that the man's sins is why the hammer
fell on his head, but maybe something else happened in his life that led him away from his devotion and conversion efforts between the injury and when
you saw him again.
Did the Devil throw the hammer on his head
It is possible, I suppose, that the destroyer, the accuser and deceiver, the evil one, had a hand in that hammer falling on this man's head. The
devil can't stand allegiance to God, the Creator.
In scripture, even Jesus Christ Himself was separated briefly from God when He took on the sin of all mankind on the cross, when God expended His
wrath upon His only begotten Son, that prophecy may be fulfilled, and that we may be saved.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
Mark 15:34 echos this passage.
He died for me (all of us), that I may be, a child of God.
