Folks with the perspective and cheek to judge God are typically short-sighted, rigidly narrow and brittle in their views, and far from humble.
There was a time when I judged God for the way He arranged things in my life. That NEVER worked out well for me.
HE happens to be God
The humble . . . or even merely the wise . . . or merely the one focused on survival or eternal life
could rapidly come to the conclusion from a few of the facts:
1. God is God. We are not.
2. God declares HE IS LOVE.
3. God demonstrates HIS LOVE TOWARD rebellious mankind, even while we are lost in our rebellions . . . to the extend of "the only begotten" part of
Himself came to die for us rebels.
one comes up against something that seems mystifying or incongruous,
the logical, sane, bright, perceptive thing would be
that perhaps God knows something I don't.
That just perhaps, I do NOT have sufficiently high a perch from which to judge God.
Of course . . . lots of folks think that they can joust with the speeding train . . . and lose.
A shocking number of folks think that they can outrun a bear . . . and lose.
A surprising number of folks think that they can outsmart God . . . and lose.
A ridiculous number of folks think that they can OUT-MORAL God . . . and lose.
