The answer isnt very simple -- and requires a lot of soul searching is why nobody ever talks about it.
God created humans, God created the planet, and all that is in existance....God created existance.
I wont pretend to know everything, but ill tell you what i believe to be true.
In the short answer form: God does try to step in and work for those people like that child in the picture, but God tries to do so through God's
followers. A man or woman was there when this picture was taken, obviously - so hopefully this person intervened.
To expect that God will take care of every need and want of every person on the entire planet and grant everyone their wish to to treat God like a
servant. We are God's servants, not the other way around.
Those who starve and suffer, but keep their faith are granted ever lasting peace and love in Heaven. Those who have opportunities to do something and
choose to do nothing (IE: Millionare athletes and wallstreet brokers who see these images, could donate a few hundred thousand dollars, but choose to
do just 13 cents a day)
Those are the people who are twisted. I am not saying that rich people are evil because they are rich. I am saying that God see's money as
worthless, and that can be proven by looking at the majority of people he allows to have it (they are worthless)
So stop with this hippy # that says "why does God allow suffering"
Satan creates suffering - God creates people to combat the suffering, but through the concept of free-will, people can choose to listen or ignore the
callings of God and the teachings of Christ.
You can also think about it like this:
You look at that picture of the child, and only then, do you realize how fortunate you are. It is not a twisted notion to think this way. You have
it better than this child, but need reminded of it a lot. That child could have been God's instrument to spark you to post this on the ATS website,
and then this posting influences someone to donate a lot of money...who knows. God works in mysterious ways (to use an old quote again)
Don't be so brave to insinuate you understand all the workings of existance, and dont be so bold as to deny the existance of God. Because i can
promise you that i know one thing for sure. On the day that you die, and your spirit transends to meet the maker, and you are trembling at the
"feet" of God to answer for your sins and your disbelief, it will be too late to beg for forgiveness and offer repentence.
Save your soul now before it is too late. you could walk out your door 2 hours from now and hear the distant sounds of trumpets as Jesus Christ makes
his triumphant return. You dont want to be on the wrong side of the Lord when that day comes.
