Just how is God’s mercy, love and justice manifest to the world? Where is the justice when a 14 year old Nepalese girl is forced into sex slavery and my children live a wonderful life. The Bible is wrong about God being Merciful, Loving and Just. He is not. Where is the evidence?
There is abundant evidence that God is merciless. He engaged in all kinds of evil behavior towards enemies of the Children of Israel. For a listing of God’s 158 murderous killing events in which he murdered and tortured over 24 million, click HERE.
God Permitted Murderous Despots to Kill Millions
God Allowed six million of the Children of Israel, his “chosen” people, to be slaughtered by Hitler
God Permits Young Virgin Girls To Become Sex Slaves;
God Intentionally Causes Children To Be Born With Birth Defects;
Exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
allows millions of children (and adults) to starve to death;
- intentionally visits cruel, debilitating chronic diseases like cholera, measles, typhoid, malaria, Aids, Parkinsons and Huntingtons upon unlucky individuals;
- periodically causes the earth to shift causing bloodshed, death and years of suffering
You may believe in “God” but why do you even speak to Him after all his indifference to human suffering?
Would you speak to me if I watched and allowed your daughter to be tortured and raped?
God fails as a “Good Samaritan” and is guilty of depraved indifference.
What good is He if he doesn’t help us in these cases?
In short, how do you reconcile the claims of faith with the facts of life?
How can a deity be merciful if he created evil or created a Satan, knowing that his creation would suffer? I as a parent wouldn’t even think of causing harm to my children or to anyone else. Something is wrong with a view that says God is merciful. Evidence points to the other direction-merciless.
My wife suffered from serious illnesses for 13 years and passed away a few weeks ago. I am devastated due to losing her but also devastated to the lack of a god of mercy ever caring about moving a finger to heal her. Many people prayed, including my children with faith. It did nothing for god to heal her. How is this supposed to make him a merciful god that people can believe in?
whoah this weblog is fantastic i really like reading your articles.
Keep up the good work! You realize, many people are looking round for this info, you could help them greatly.
God is Neither merciful , nor cruel . God does not exist . Crude laws of nature rule and since life started from chaos , you see all this suffering, injustice etc etc …because natural laws are just indifferent …whether you push a robber off a cliff or a saint , they will both meet horrible death.
Together with the whole thing that seems to be developing throughout this particular area, all your viewpoints are quite radical. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It seems to us that your opinions are actually not completely rationalized and in actuality you are generally your self not even entirely confident of your point. In any event I did enjoy reading through it.
As I site possessor I believe the content material here is rattling fantastic , appreciate it for your efforts. You should keep it up forever! Good Luck.
The bible claims that god is merciful I am saying this as an ex Christian of 20 yrs from childhood to early adulthood this is untrue. One could sit in any church congregation and see this claim is not only over rated but so much so that pastors in churches are preaching suffering. Most people in the church is suffering from chronic illnesses or are dealing with a lot of challenging circumstances. Many have been praying for decades and have never received any answered prayers in fact their situations have worsened. Every blue moon you may see someone get so called blessed but if god was so merciful wouldn’t their be more testimonies of miracles, healings, deliverance of circumstances and such? I mean all I am asking to see is at least 30% of (testimonies and events) the time and that’s not a lot. My experience has been a testimony of many unanswered prayers and when I became an adult raised in the church I realized that everyone was pretty much wasting their time. I finally walked away from religion, after seeing that god (omnipotent, Omni present, merciful, compassionate, benevolent) rarely presents these characteristics in the lives of Christians let alone humanity as a whole. There was really no difference. Most people who attend church expect to see and or receive some sort of expression of gods goodness but many it never happens and therefore this world is becoming more of an atheist society. There are those who never believe in gods existence in the first place and then the others believe that gods more evil than good. God is more eager to show his wrath and anger than his favor, compassion and love. I seriously have experienced this.
Everything you have described above is merely what humans have done to other humans, human cruelty at its worst against other human beings. God has nothing to do with this.
If every human, regardless of their religions or lack thereof, would for just one day, just one, decide to put in their minds and hearts God’s thoughts and only that, could you imagine what that day would be?
If for just a day we would all be loving, caring, healing, helping one another, if for one day everyone would put down their guns, knifes, ban hatred out of their hearts, reject incest, prostitution, killings, stealing, profanity, betrayal, lying, cheating, violence, and seek the face of God. Can you fathom that?
You will see God’s mercy when you do what God asks of you. You want God to do your will and do as you want Him to do, but do you do what God wants of you in the first place? You keep asking, but what are you giving in return? Have you shown Him respect? Fear? Obedience? Have you practiced his Word? Have you honoured Him?
Is God at your beck and call? What have you given God that He has to return?
Did He create you or did you create Him? Can a child put conditions on the terms of their obedience to their parents?
Start by doing God’s will and you will see mercy like you never imagined possible. There are thousands of God’s promises in the Bible, pick just one and make it yours, and your life will change beyond your wildest expectations.
If all 6 billions of us would pick just one promise in the bible and make it the GPS of our lives, there would be no room for the Maos, Hitlers, and other demons in the world. We have closed our hearts to God and by doing so, we have invited the devil in our own lives, now what are we complaining about? This is what we have brought onto ourselves. The devil rules the world because we have turned our backs to the Creator. It’s that simple.
Humans have to wise up and clean their hearts and minds, seek God’s face and put Him in the in the first place at all times and see what God will do. He’s waiting. Always.
Thank You Kevodesign… God Bless You (tongue in cheek) If it is truly objective, then the fact that there was no Exodus will have added support.
WHOOPS… There is now (1/14/2015) a website for the movie. I DO believe it will present both “sides” of the issue. I have read excerpts from some of the presenters so I pretty well know what will be said. “It will be up to the audience to decide based on the evidence presented”. ‘
Based on the trailers and clips I have seen, they don’t even present some of the compelling “evidence” that I present; e.g. water for 1.5 million people = Millions of gallons of water a day. From where? A rock? How distributed? Or what about sanitation: 1.5 million people and their cattle would produce a lot of excrement and urine. What about communication? ETC.
These are practical problems that are unanswerable and prove there could not have been an Exodus. I don’t need to watch the movie. I KNOW the answer. There was no Exodus.
The Bible arrogantly claims that God is mericful, and Christians, Jews and Muslims are FORCED to believe this horrendous lie. This accusation I make is backed by 100% proof which cannot even possibly contest. All my life I have been mocked, laughed at, spat on, told how ugly I am, and that I am a freak, an alien. And I my life I prayed, many thousands of times, yet NOT ONCE has God in all his mercy even attempted to answer me, or alleviate the suffering I face. I would be the greatest fool in history to continue to believe that God is merciful and just after the unanswered thousands of prayers I have made, well I am a fool no longer.
I always knew there was something wrong about the God of the Hebrews, condoning slavery, stoning gays, ordering the killing of many innocent people who didn’t follow he/she/it. Anyone who claims that the loving God of Jesus is the same as the old testament God obviously has not read it at all.
But it is what it is, I lived denying God. But I sold my soul to the devil, and realized that I am doomed to hell. You may be saying it is not real, but the moment I denied him, things get worse, no matter what I try to do.
