Well from a Universal point of view, Nothing Actually matters Nothing has meaning, there's absolutely no purpose everything is just happening Randomly been Alive or dead doesn't make any difference we are just mere accident who happen to have consciousness we wont be here for long, in Billion years to come the Sun will die out and everything will collapse. So just Stop stressing yourself and Relax at least temporarily.

It is said that in the beginning when everything was created, it was good. How did something so good turn out bad?

Question is does God share the earth with us? Does he have a street name or a building here on earth? The earth was made for all living creatures. The specific instruction was fill the earth and multiply.

We were brought here to conquer the earth but what we did was up to us. It was our responsibility to conquer not to be conquered. The blame remains on us.

It is not Gods fault that this world is messed up. It is your fault and mine too. That place that you live how do you show forth the love of God. How do you treat others and how do you or me relate with God and humans? think about it

What kind of a father watches as a snake crawl close to his child even if the snake is assumed harmless? The story of the fall of Adam and Eve is an indictment of God the creator. As at the time of the fall, Adam and Eve were badies and ignorant, needing protection but their only known associate didn't do anything to help them but was quick to condemn and release curses on them. That kind of a God obviously delights in seeing his children suffer and doesn't seem like a good father to me.
I destroy anything that stands to hurt my kids and I can't even say l am good father. Fatherhood taught me to disbelieve the whole fall of Adam and origin of human suffering theory in the book of Genesis.

Hi there.

I don't know what God you mean, but in the Christian worldview, God did not create a messed up world.

In the first creation, He made a perfect universe with perfect creatures in it including the angels whom He made to possess free will and rule over it. When some of the angels sinned, they corrupted and ruined not only themselves but the universe that was under their care.

In the restoration of the universe after the divine judgment that responded to the Satanic rebellion prior to human history, God re-formed the universe as a good habitation for His new creation Man. And He also made Man as a good creation to replace the angels that rebelled.

Unfortunately, man sinned too. As a result of his own rebellion, God cursed the creation that was made for him too. This is because of God's perfect character. God cannot ignore sin. He must punish it.

So the ruin that you see is not God's fault. It is His doing because of His divine judgments upon sin, but those judgments are in response to creature sin. If those of His creatures that possess free will never sinned, this would still be a perfect world.

Does God enjoy this state of things? Not according to the Bible. The Bible teaches that He is patiently waiting for all mankind to repent. After all of humanity has been given fair opportunity to make a choice about Him, God will wipe the slate clean and make a new perfect universe where there will be no more sin or any kind of unrighteousness.

At that time, He will return to spend eternity with all those who willingly chose eternity with Him during their time of testing on earth.

Cheers.

Not conquer but to Enjoy! But foolish man has used his foolish enjoyment to Burn Down the Only House that he has been Given!

Now, he has burnt his only house like a Foolish Woman does and now he, who burnt the House is complaining and Lamenting that it the House NOT GOOD! grin

Oh, what a Very Funny Scene indeed! grin

Makes me Laugh Every time! grin Exactly as a child who has destroyed his own toy by his own hands, thereafter complaining that his toy is destroyed! grin grin hoo! grin

God gave them freewill/ created both of them as free moral agents, hence the choice to obey his order and to love Him was completely theirs. The thing with freewill is that while God may know what is probable, we end up surprising and disappointing even He Himself at times (when we go against what He wants for us). Had God decided to stop all evil in the world, or to stop people from choosing evil, then it would be across-the-board, which means He would have to stop a hungry child from shoplifting a piece of bread or something because he/she is well, hungry. This would not only pose ethical concerns but would violate the freewill He has given us, albeit there are many instances where He has protected people from evil not only in the Bible but in modern times. The existence of sin and in the world isn't the hopeless thing most people deem it to be, as God made a plan of redemption in advance.

Defeating BH needs to be a collective effort, in terms of the necessary reforms that must take place. BH-affecting states need to play their own part in improving military efforts, implementing comprehensive programs to address the roots of radicalism (especially corruption and bad governance), provide better development assistance to impoverished communities, etc. The main drivers of BH are internal and must be addressed by Nigeria's federal and state-level governments.

l did not read where God warned Adam and Eve of the existence of a contrary power that they should resist. Again, what kind of a father watches as his child plays with a snake, knowing fully well that the child knows nothing of the danger, all in the name of freewill? l still maintain that God is complicit in the fall of man and the judgement was too severe to mete out on a creature ignorant about good and evil. Freewill cannot exist before the knowledge of good and evil.

See how you have cancelled yourself? First you say

"What kind of a father watches as a snake crawl close to his child even if the snake is assumed harmless?

Then you selfcide in saying
"I destroy anything that stands to hurt my kids" meaning, if it is not going to hurt your kids by your estimation, you would not do anything about it, Exactly as God Did to Adam and Eve!
