Re: Our World Today: Better or Worse?
Honestly, the issue of God is just annoying.
If God is so merciful and great, why did the Holocaust occur? Did God take a vacation? Does God not care about the people in Darfur?
I have heard a few arguments in response to my questions.
1. God does everything for a reason.
My rebuttal would be: If God has a reason to kill thousands and thousands of people (Holocaust), then God ain't so nice.
2. God didn't do that, a man did.
My rebuttal: To you, God is all-powerful, yes? Does he not have the time/initiative to save copious amounts of lives?
3. The Devil did it.
My rebuttal: Is God more powerful, or is the devil? Was the God not able to stop the death of many, many people?
You also need to ask, better or worse than what?
Technologically we are obviously great. But, morally, we need some work. I think people need to start coming back to Earth, and stop living prayers.
