|Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by Toks2008(m): 2:36pm On Mar 10|
After i heard the news of The Ethiopian airline Boeing 737 that crashed today killing over 150 people i felt compelled to drop this piece with a heavy heart and very deep sobriety..
Many people often wonder why GOD allows people to die through several ways when he has the power to avert the cause and atheists have used this issue to discredit the existence of GOD.
The bitter truth is every one of us must die at different times through different means regardless of the age. Whether by human error, gun,natural disasters,wars, plane crash, sickness...WE ALL MUST LEAVE THIS EARTH.
It is quite unfortunate that the earth does not have infinite resources for limitless number of species so by default,people must die for earth's ecological balance to be sustained. Imagine you, your entire family right from the previous 4 generations living in one building without anyone leaving...now you can imagine how choked you all will be.
In like manner, for the earth to maintain its balance, every living species must at one time or the other leave for new ones to have space. So the bitter truth is that people must die and as people leave this earth, new people come in through child birth and this balance must continue regardless of your prayer to live long....IF GOD ANSWERS EVERYBODY'S PRAYER FOR LONG LIFE I GUESS THIS WORLD WILL BE SATURATED.
What GOD cares about is our souls and whilst we cry on earth when anyone dies, to GOD it is home coming cos this earth is just a temporary place for our souls.
Our souls–that invisible and eternal part of us–is the part that connects us with God. It’s what makes us different than all other life forms on the planet: every human has a soul. Your soul is the real you and that is what GOD really cares about and not your earthly body. That’s why Jesus asked, “Is anything worth more than your soul?”(Mark 8:37)
Yes its ok to pray and wish for long life but stop bothering your head about who dies and who lives or when and how you die....it can happen at anytime so start preparing your soul for where you want it to be for eternity.
May the souls of the dead R.I.P..Amen!

There are some kind of deaths that are caused by human errors.

over population. The earth does not have infinite resources. Death is the only sure way for life to continue.

Death must happen someway and somehow bro.
|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by dingbang(m): 3:13pm On Mar 10|
Toks2008:we saying the same thing.. If you now know that it must happen then there is no need asking Why God allows it.. Think.
|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by Toks2008(m): 3:28pm On Mar 10|
You have no idea how people blame GOD for certain deaths.
Have you not heard Atheists blame GOD for certain mishaps?

True God cares about the soul of man but soul isn't the part that connects man to God but the spirit.
The soul (mind, emotion and will) is meant to be subject to the spirit of man.
The spirit (intuition, conscience and communion) is the part that coonects to the Spirit of God in order to live a God centered life on earth.

Your soul houses your spirit and these two live on so inadvertently it is your soul that connects.

After the fall, man's spirit lost its primary function towards God; for it became dead to God. It thus appear that it has become an accessory to the soul (mind, emotions and will). Man's spirit then became controlled and influenced completely by his soul with the result that it manifests the works of the soul. As the soul (mind, emotion and volition) grow stronger, the functions of the spirit (conscience, communion with God and intuition) became so eclipsed as to render them almost unknown. Thus is why there must be the work of dividing between soul and spirit after a believer is regenerated (born again). The dividing is necessary because spirit and soul have become one. Everything is done according to the dictates of intellect or feeling. The spirit has lost its power and sensation, as though dead asleep. What instinct it has in knowing and serving God is entirely paralyzed. It remains in a coma as if nonexistent. This is what is meant in Jude 19 by “natural, not having spirit” (literal).
The "soul" part of man always seeks it's own way, and does not want to yield nor submit to anyone, much less the ways of God. The soul is the seat of pride and arrogance, it's the place where "feelings" desire to rule, which can cause us to make decisions that are not always healthy for our spiritual growth. The soul of man must be brought under subjection and submission to the Lord if we are ever going to realize the true blessings of God in our lives. The deeper the Word of God penetrates the deeper works the cross and the further the Holy Spirit completes the union of the life of our spirit with the Lord Jesus. Cross-bearing is continuous. The cross which condemned sin to death is an accomplished fact: all which remains for us to do is to acknowledge and receive it.

Tragedies have been occurring since immemorial. I don't think He allows them. Free will and human error are the big contributing factors.
|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by theoriginalgood: 8:19pm On Mar 11|
Why would God let something die? The wages of sin is death. Are humans fundamentally good? Do you think anus, feces, sweat, body odors, urine etc are essentially characteristics of a truly good being?
Do you think God has to use a mirror to know his own reflection? Humans are proven imperfect. Only perfect is good. Humans are evidently evil.
God is only good and that’s why he’s the most superior in existence. Good is stronger than evil. Evil still exists today, but God is on his way to deleting it. It just takes time.
Killing off evil is like cooking a meal; it’s only ready after sometime with the fire and not immediately the fire is applied.
God’s will is unstoppable. Simple as ABC. From G (G for God) to the N (N for end). GHIJKLMN: Get Honestly Infuriated Just Kill Love Make New.
OP has a point about the “nothing” or “invisible” part of humans. God will kill off the evil flesh and put the soul in a new good body.
God is omnipotent, he can do absolutely anything good, but preserving evil is impossible.

|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by bloodofthelamb(m): 11:59pm On Mar 12|
Who told you God allows such? Didn't God said whatever you allow here on earth shall be allowed in heaven? Do you think He was joking when He said so?
|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by BeLookingIDIOT(m): 8:56am On Mar 13|
You raised a question,yet answered another one: wasn't your inquest supposed to be about dying tragically and not normal transitioning?
|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by Toks2008(m): 11:33am On Mar 13|
It is about tragic death not normal transition cos just as you named it..NORMAL meaning you grow old and die.

Tragic deaths occurs because it is natural and a form of natural population control. It has nothing to do with any god. God only exist in fiction not reality. If Nigerians can blame Buhari a mere mortal for not acting when Fulani herdsmen kill people, If we can hold the security agents accountable for securing the country, why then does the said god who is acclaimed to be alpha and omega allow innocent people and children die while he sits idle and watch. Isn't that irresponsibility on the path of the said God? Religion has really affected the rational thinking of we Africans that we tend to swallow the theory of God without questioning. A God that is said to be loving, omnipotent and so on will watch while bombs go off in worship centers and people who went to serve this same god will be blown to smitterens while religious folks blame the devil for such occurence without blaming their God. Isn't church and other worship centers supposed to be the safest havens considering the fact that it's portrayed to be God's house? Yet we shout Buhari this, Buhari that when certain tragedies like boko haram or killings happen forgetting you guys don't pray to Buhari but your God who is meant to protect you from such occurence. Why continue serving someone who can't even protect you when it's time?
There is no God anywhere and if there is and he intentionally allows these innocent killings of people he created in his own image, then he must be the most irresponsible leader ever known to mankind.

Which god is the OP talking about sef? Is it the christian or Muslim or pagan god? Is it god the father or god the son or god the holy spirit? Is it Vishnu, sango,Odin, Thor? or is it possible that any of the aforementioned gods are unconcerned that they will just let people die helplessly? Or people just die because well that is how every human will end up any way?

|Re: Why Does GOD Allow tragic death? by ClintonNzedimma(m): 12:04pm On Mar 13|
The earlier we realize GOD does not play by our rules, we will think freely. In the Bible GOD will tell David to go to a city and slaughter thousands and show no mercy. He doesn't give a f**k. Even as a Christian I am still logical to admit some of the things did in the name of GOD in the ancient times can be categorized as genocide today. The Israelites treated non-jews as inferiors and gave them the derogatory name known as Gentiles, today that will be called Racism. GOD doesn't care about political correctness or social brouhaha, one of the reasons that make him GOD. I have come to terms with this, as a human , we may not agree with some of the things he does but what can we do?

Because death is not the end just as leaving your mother's womb wasn't the end.

Death is part of life.. God doesn't do jack shiit.. "Things just happen" either by human error or nature does it thing.. Maybe we should ask why does God allow eruption in planet Mercury.
