Having a bad day DW?
Most of us have recovered from the flood and plagues. Whassup wit you?
This is directed to God? Whoever he or she is?
We were given free will, and that comes with responsibility. We cannot have a "perfect world" without pain or disease unless we voluntarily and collectively choose that. I don't fear God, I love God, what I fear is being separated from God and the results thereof.
God is the Creator, infinite intelligence, and the connection you have with God brings you discernment and insight. When you disconnect from that, you stumble in darkness, and the things you think are right destroy you.
A good case study for this is Sweden. They are the most atheist country on earth, only about 18% of the population has any belief at all in a higher power, and I assume that figure includes the masses of Muslim immigrants they have welcomed into their midst. The people of Sweden thought unchecked immigration was a virtue, but every day that goes by sees them fall deeper and deeper into a hellish existence. The streets used to be very safe, now there are large and growing areas where native Swedes are unwelcome and subject to violent attacks. Their police are afraid to arrest criminals for fear of reprisals. Swedes are being driven out of their own land, and any criticism of the situation is treated as a crime.
It's a law of the universe - nations who reject God fall to destruction. You can rail against it or call it unfair, but it won't change the fact.
I find it rather odd that even though someone doesn't believe there is a God, they still blame Him for everything that has gone wrong in their lives.
I'm a believer, and proud of it. God gave us free choice, and I'm sure He's not too happy with the choices we've made.
Was that you I saw on the way to work today, DW2?
Might as well have been. :)
