WHY DOES GOD ALLOW CRUELTY
If God would have to wipe out all sinners, none would be left. None of us is without sin. So don't be haste in judging.
"Die Armut wurde nicht von Gott geschaffen. Die haben wir hervorgebracht, ich und du mit unserem Egoismus."
"For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit,
and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in
conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want." ~
The Lord will help when you ask, in your endeavour, and left behind the
Holy Spirit. You even have your guardian angel for support.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with us, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. The fact is..
2 Peter 3:8 with the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
God gave humans a free will
Look at an ant colony. And realize how many of them there are, scattered on this planet. How small they are compared to us, humans. God is everywhere, but if you do not shout out (PRAY, MEDITATE), stand out, how the hell is he gonna notice you.
We chose to have a free will. With free will comes freedom, and responsibility. But he did not abandon us. We just have to call. Did you call or do you only complain?
God hears prayers and acts upon it:
Genesis 18:20 Then Jehovah said: "The outcry against Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah is indeed great, and their sin is very heavy. I will go down to see whether they are acting according to the outcry that has reached me. And if not, I can get to know it.
He did not create darkness, but light.
Well he actually did, he created day and night (Genesis 1:5) but added the light (moon, stars). If there is no darkness you cannot see the light, same if you never have obstacles in your life you can never truly appreciate when good falls upon you.
He did not create Satan, He created a beautiful angel named Lucifer, the Morningstar, who by his own will, became corrupted.
He wants us to make conscious decisions.
It is our own responsibility to help those in need and battle against evil.
Satan ruler of the world
1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

Like Johnny Cash said, "being a Christian isn't for sissies. It takes a real man to live for God - a lot more man than to live for the devil."
The 103-year old man, Saint Dobri Dobrev, passed away in 2018, had spent decades traveling 25 kilometers from his village to the city of Sofia, Bulgaria, on foot every day to beg for money. Dressed in home-made clothes and leather shoes, the humble World War veteran spent his day asking for change to donate to churches and orphanages who could not pay their bills. Dobri didn't keep one cent of the money he received. He himself lived on a 80 euro pension by the government. Who are the saints? It may surprise you, read here
By their fruit you will recognize them.. Matt 7:16
You can recognize a follower of Christ by its fruit; every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
Animal cruelty? Pedophilia? Hell no these are not christians. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Each and every living organism has a role to play, says Protrack. According to an atheist I spoke last week (one of the many who take every opportunity to bash christians), a human does not have to contribute anything of worth. Another atheist chipped in saying she delivered a few children so that was her contribution to the world. Flies leg eggs/give birth too, and even a fly has a function in our world; flies are insects that play an important role in agriculture, in the food chain and in pollinating flowers.
Do not be a mooch..
All knowing God failed?
Another atheist favorite: "if your God is so all knowing, he could have known how evil people can be, so he failed in his creations". God created people OUT OF LOVE. He did not create brainless beings. He gave you the opportunity to make your own decisions, wrong or right.
He knew a lot of us would fuck up, just like a mother knows before giving birth her child will fuck up too. Even by knowing her child will make mistakes too, she still gives birth out of love and guides and hopes for the best. That is called love.
If an atheist has no God who says do not kill, then why are the pedophiles, rapists and animal abusers still around? I know how I would spend my time if I thought I had no Father and my forefather was a monkey.
The March of Progress, 'monkey to man' illustration properly called The Road to Homo Sapiens, is hardly accurate. We are living in 2020 now, not 1920. The ape and human 'Y' chromosomes "are remarkably divergent in structure" (Nature 463, 536-539, 28 January 2010)
Another hoax is God being all forgiving. If that was the case, there would not be a hell described in the bible. The general abuse of the quote in Luke 23:34 is sickening. Perpetrators know exactly what they are doing.
Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.
Things are not always what they seem
Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy man. The wealthy man did not think much of the two angels of light. He thought they were two useless vagabonds and refused to let them stay in one of his many guestrooms. Instead the two angels were given a small space in the cold and damp basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied: " Things are not always what they seem."
The next night the two angels arrived at the house of a very poor farmer and his wife. The poor couple immediately recognised the two strangers and were more than happy to welcome them into their home. They shared the little food they had and let the angels sleep in their own bed, where they could have a good night's rest. When the sun came up the next morning the two angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.
The younger angel was shocked. He turned to the older angel and asked him bitterly: " How could you have let this happen? The first man had everything but gave us nothing, yet you helped him. This couple had nothing but gave us everything and yet you let their cow die."The next night the two angels arrived at the house of a very poor farmer and his wife.

"Things are not always what they seem," the old angel replied calmly. "In the basement of the wealthy man's house a treasure of pure gold and diamonds is hidden in that hole in the wall. Since the man was so obsessed with greed and so unwilling towards us, I sealed the wall so he will never find the hidden treasure. Then last night as we slept in the farmer's bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. That old sickly beast was the cause of their poverty anyway and very soon now they will find a new and healthy cow." " Just remember", the old angel said to his young companion,
"Things are not always what they seem."
