very good conclusions, truth be told i have known that and struggled with those exact same ideas even before i became a Christian. what finally made
sense of it for me was this; that it made no sense. once again truth be told, we dont understand the whole of God, we are incapable of fully
understanding Him, the Bible even says we see dimly, we see only a speck of the universe that is God. that is not to say i agree with everything you
said, but only i acknowledge those logical truths, but they are just that, logical in human minds truth. now one might say God is illogical and insane
and etc but thats not what im implying. what im saying is God was the only one there at the beginning, and we werent.
your argument is like a 2d object trying to explain a 3d object, in some degree it can understand but not fully, not truly, and where it 'thinks' it
understands, its the complete opposite. your argument against God is hate, and my argument for God is love. let go of your pride and 'your'
understanding of God, and let Him show you. lastly, id like to say that were never going to fully understand God in our human bodies and that was
intentional, so your argument that God is this hateful being that can stop evil but doesnt is false, because your assuming things that are not there.
so you might think theres evidence of these acts, but your not seeing that these are coming from us not Him. we brought evil into this world and God
gave us the remedy.
after thinking about it some more, i have another response to your "why even create us?" [if God is evil and hateful and knew what would happen in the
first place] my response to that is a question as well; why would God even send His Son Jesus to save us, why would He even love us at all and die for
us? if He never gave us a chance for redemption, your argument would be valid. but if He gave us redemption then we must assume He is a perfect God as
He showed perfect love which wouldnt exist if He wasnt perfect from the start. i think what were finding here is a matter of faith, you either accept
God as being hateful and cruel and evil, or you accept Him as being a perfect God of love who wants a relationship with us and has eternal purposes in
heaven planned for us. i will choose the latter.
