In fact, it could be argued that he knew who would sit in each seat in hell and why, even as he built the place. He determined your fate before your grandfather took his first breath.
God doesn't pull triggers humans do. God never showed humans how to make guns or how to kill. Humans did that on their own.
Humans are accountable for their own actions.

Why do you think your "God" does not make it's existence obvious or communicate in an obvious manner?
Now I know some of you are going to say oh he does make his existence known and he does communicate and well I am not talking about some vague bible writings written thousands of year ago. I am talking about just plain ole hello there type talking.
Why does your god not reveal himself? Testing your faith? Why would he do that if he created you he knows the lengths of your faith.
So now that this is clear what gives? Why is god so secretive? Why is our only salvation written on some scrolls created by uneducated men 1000's of years ago?
Would be easy for everyone to believe if God would just say hello.
