I want to believe.
But how come I do really good things for people, and donate spare change to charities, but yet I still have to struggle day to day to survive right
now? I'm in a real life survival situation.. why hasn't the one you term "God" assisted me? Perhaps I'm not the most righteous person on the
earth, but I'm by far from a malevolent person.
So say I'm in said situation, and I believe in "God" but I still don't get divine intervention like I should?

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Well, I don't feel very blessed when I have to endure hardship after hardship, despite my ability to try and change the outcomes of my own life.
Where is god when innocent children are killed each and every day via war, or starvation. I just don't see how some higher power can say "its for
the greater good for people to suffer and believe in me" than opposed to people who are rich, and don't have many daily struggles. These people
claim god helped them succeed, but what about all of the people suffering that DO believe in "god" How come he lets a certain few have success,
while others may not? God sounds bias. I have a hard time subscribing to what religion teaches.

He's right here. We are created in His image and he has turned this world over to us. We selected the wrong Lord to follow and now we are caught in
this situation. When we select the correct side of truth, we will heal the world. Many of us are already doing this. Poverty and hardship are
markers of suffering that either originates with stealing reward or the result of suffering for true reward. I don't know you so I can't say, but I
can give you the blueprint to see clearly.
If you smoke, you get cancer. This is because you took a debt that was not earned and suffering follows. Flip this and you see the positive. If you
work out in the gym, you gain health. This is because suffering first creates reward. The balance of these types of choices dictate your life in its
current state. Trace back your choices and see if I am correct. I can only guess but you know. Healing this suffering requires you to suffer on
purpose and work toward that goals you have in life.
On the other hand, much of our suffering in life comes at the hands of others. The same law of returns applies to those we affect in life. Smoking
causes cancer, but also takes a father and mother away from the family. Suffering as a result affects all of us. On the flip side of this, suffering
what is earned allows us to give it away to others. Work a job and get a paycheck. That paycheck allows the family to eat.
Take it a step further. Do you need TV, Computers, Games, Drugs, Fancy Cars or the like? Not really. You can be happy living near your work,
walking and visiting a free library. Deconstruct the things you do not need from your life and you might just find you are rich without them. Live
simply and peace follows. Again, I don't know you but I do know the laws that determine each of us as we do the same two things in life. We each
thing and move and beyond this, we are equal. God produces the world around us, makes your hair grow, makes the Earth turn and the Sun shine. We do
none of it. Choices make the rest. Simply make the best choices possible.
Suffering is the point of life. You must be born again so no need barking at God because we die. His Spirit and not ours. He requires it back and
offers it again and again. Baptism is our immersion into the world so we can rise to NEW life. The rising part is a combination of us and God. God
develops faith. You do the rest. Faith makes it possible, not easy.
