I can hear your hurt and confusion. I think everyone experiences this at one time or another. Sometimes it seems like the pain and the struggle will
I encourage you to seek God out personally, that is the only way to understand.
GOD CANNOT BE EXPLAINED, HE CAN ONLY BE EXPERIENCED.
In the Bible GOD says: Call on me and I WILL ANSWER YOU and show you the great and mighty things which thou knowest not.
If you want answers you need to go to the source.
Even if you read on the war in Heaven and the Battle between God and Satan you will realize that every bad thing that happens here happens because of
Satan and NOT God.
God is a legalist and we gave Satan legal rights to this world after sin entered the world in the Garden of Eden. God is a legalist so much that he
gives us free choice and if we don't want him he will give us our space. He doesn't force our love, obedience, or anything. He makes the rules and
follows His own rules. The choice is yours, not his.
Remember that God doesn't kill people, people kill people, drugs kill people, drunk driving kills people, greed and corruption kills people. Each
person has a choice. Just like Eve had a choice whether to eat or not to eat. Nothing from Him is forced.
If he doesn't force man's decisions, why should He take 100% of the blame for the consequences(war,famine,death) of man's decisions.
Yet even still He sent His son to die so that all of us can have eternal life. According to the Laws of Heaven the only way to get rid of sin is for
something to die. He is a legalist. So, He sent His Son to die once and for all for EVERYONE. Once we leave this world, which we handed over to Satan,
we will move on to His world which is not defiled and corrupted by evil.
When you truly come to know Him, things will be so much clearer. EVEN IF YOU DON'T AGREE, you will come to respect His decisions.
