If there is a loving God,I'm sure he would understand why I struggle with the concepts in the bible, and with the way I see things
what don't you understand, perhaps i can help
It is true that God undertands both of those things....It is you that doesnt understand why and how you are confused.
(smiles) hmmm..yes I would say I am confused with myself often,and wonder why I feel what I do.
I so do want to believe in a higher being,that judges wisely ,with great compassion,and inspires humans to live a meaningful life, with the promise
of an after life that is free of horror and pain,caused by twisted minds and souls. But at the same time,I struggle with a higher being that has power
to stop some terrible atrocities against innocent victims,especially children, but chooses not to.
So to answer your question again,I find God confusing,as well as finding myself and other humans confusing.
I think that many are confused by this loving God, and how He chooses to not answer prayers for some, but seems to answer for others.
It breaks my heart when I see people say..look what the Lord did for us, He inspired someone to give us a new car..but yet there is some mother out
there desperatley praying for an innocent child of hers, that has been abducted, and her prayers seem to go unanswered.
I think I have a right to be confused.
