A Call to All Christians!?

Questions concerning your God:

1. Why did God allow the holocaust to occur? What happen to omnipresent salvation? I know God gave people free will, but what happens when people covet free will from others? What about the "others"?

2. If so many divine miracles have occurred by the hand of God and Jesus, why weren't the Jewish people, africans, homosexuals, mentally and physically disables persons, albanians, and democrats who were believers in God and Jesus saved from the massacre in Germany from 1933 to 1945.

3. What about other disasters such as; 9/11 where hundreds of believers were slaughtered in mere minutes, natural disasters such as hurricane katrina in new orleans, darfur, and the challenger disasters where all austranaut pilots were devout christians?

4. And finally, what about the countless homeless litering the streets, who all pray for some relief: relief that is never seen.

    I'm sure other people will tackle items 1-3 on your list. I would like to address item number 4. What have YOU done about the homeless and hungry people littering the streets? The problem isn't that there is no food for these people (God created a world capable of providing plenty of food) or even a lack of beds (lots of material for making beds and buildings to put them in). God has provided more than enough for everyone here to have the basics. It isn't His fault if people are starving and cold in the streets, it is OURS. We are failing each other due to selfishness, greed and apathy. Prove me wrong, I would love to see it.

    1. Why did God allow the holocaust to occur?

    Either because there is no god, or there is one but he doesn't car, or there is one but he doesn't interfere in the affairs of men.

    2. If so many divine miracles have occurred by the hand of God and Jesus, why weren't the Jewish people, africans, homosexuals, mentally and physically disables persons, albanians, and democrats who were believers in God and Jesus saved from the massacre in Germany from 1933 to 1945.

    See # 1 above.

    3. What about other disasters such as; 9/11 where hundreds of believers were slaughtered in mere minutes, natural disasters such as hurricane katrina in new orleans, darfur, and the challenger disasters where all austranaut pilots were devout christians?

    Because these are the natural occurrences of nature and the manifestation of man's aggression and violence, and hence far more readily explained than by making up the idea of a god being in control of these things.

    4. And finally, what about the countless homeless litering the streets, who all pray for some relief: relief that is never seen.

    That's because nobody actually practices what Jesus preached.

    1) God does not influence His people, He gave us the free will to do and behave as we please. He has ZERO influence over what you do day to day, He asks that you follow His word and His commandments, your life is your own and you should live it as He asks you, but failing to results in certain demise. The terrors that occurred during the Holocaust happened because of Eve and the serpent, not because God allowed it to. The mere fact that Humanity was ruined LONG before Hitler came along proves that.

    2) Again, God does not reach out and rescue a handful of people. If you knew anything about the Jewish faith-- you'd understand that they don't believe in the Bible. They read the first five books of the old testament and thats it. Therefore the God you're talking about doesn't exist to them-- if He WAS going to reach out to anyone, it wouldn't be the Jews.

    3) Did you read answer #1?

    4) Relief is seen after this world ends for you and those people. Humanity created this hell-on-earth, there are individuals working Gods will trying to make it better, but people who would prefer to sit and tell us that we're wrong and wasting our time might as well be responsible for ALL of the above disasters.

    Funny, I have asked some if these already in the past.. My answers?

    Here:

    1. I've just learned that the "Jews" who were killed in the Holocaust were actually converted jews.., not jews of Israel's bloodline. They were said to be Eastern European/Khazar people whose ancestors were forcibly converted to Judaism by Jewish invaders back in c800AD. The powerful Jews needed an excuse to demonize potential threats to their world domination, so they sacrificed their Khazar vassals in order to show that the Germans were savage people. Hitler's bloodline is traced all the way back to powerful Jewish families. Popular knowledge paint him as a megalomaniac that stirred the German people to make a daring run at world domination. The truth is a lot more diabolic, that it will make the popular knowledge sound like a bedtime story. He actually pushed the Germans, who were then still reeling from the injustice done to them in WWI, to make a rash move at exacting revenge at all those who ganged up on them in WWI.., all the while knowing that Germany will eventually be defeated and once again be painted as a villain for the second time. Well, that's what I heard anyway.

    2. Read #1

    3. God allowed 9/11 to happen because he actually commanded his staunchest followers to make it happen.

    4. He did not just allow it, he actually made it happen.

    The truth is, the god of this world made all of this happen for his "greater glory"..

    Hi Clarence...Well, are you sick of Sin Yet? Do you know how many people there are that don't pay one bit of attention to Sin on this Planet? The Lord will come back and end all this as soon as there are enough believers to love Him unconditionally and Hate Sin and what you wrote about is what Sin produces. There is still a question out there and that is who does not mind the pollution Satan has created and give credit to whom Credit is due. Once the cup of sin has been filled to the top just like all the times God has said enough is enough and His wrath has wiped out many Cities because of its iniquity then all you have said will be done with. But unfortunately people have not had enough of Satans Madness so events created by him go on. I have had enough and I am ready to go Home. We do all we can to share the knowledge of Salvation so the ones who have not heard the Good news will have a chance to be saved. There are a lot of people that have heard the Good new and want to do there own thing that pleases only them with out giving heart, Soul and life to God. The world is a place full of Satan followers.You want to know why your statement is so awful, its because if you are not willing to give everything up that you can give up for the Creator of this planet and I mean everything, family,children,house, food,Your life as so many have in the past for God, and as many things you can think of then we are not putting God FIRST and being thankful no matter what,with unconditional Love for Him,,,then we still don't deserve God and His gift yet. He will not push His word on You and He, if only to His Glory and, will bring Humans to His Salvation, will He then intercede in the Horrors of this world. You will have to know who God is and I always thought that the Ocean is His tear on peoples choices in life. In His Love unending...missleslie

    First of all, a lot of terrible things happen in this world because there is sin present in the world. The day that Adam and Eve sinned against God, sin came into the world. Sin is what causes death and pain, disasters and great evils to be done in this world. God gave dominion to Adam for the care of this planet; but Adam handed the dominion to Satan by disobeying God. The reason we have so much bad in the world is because right now, Satan is the god of this world. He is the one causing much of the pain.

    Why doesn't God intervene? We don't know. He does, sometimes. Look at the plane that landed in New York harbor. All the people on board survived. You could say that God intervened there. Sometimes God does intervene by warning people about things, but people don't pay attention. There was a story about a woman in the 2nd building to get hit on 911. She heard what happened to the first tower, and was wondering if they should leave the 2nd tower. She said the Lord spoke to her and said to 'get out NOW"- and she didn't wait- she immediately got up and headed downstairs, before anyone else. Her life was spared.

    The folks in Hurricane Katrina had PLENTY of warning. God gave them lots of time in advance, and if they died, it was their own fault. There were plenty of radio warnings, buses ready to leave, etc, but people were too stubborn to listen. God will not override their free will. If they want to die, then He's not going to prevent them from doing so.

    As far as the 'countless homeless'- this is a fallacy. Most of the homeless are not praying for relief- the majority of them are mentally unstable, and prefer to be out there. Those who were thrust on the street can find help if they want it. God provides help through many churches and shelters, and there are many programs to help folks who find themselves out on the street, if they are truly interested. God isn't going to magically lift them out of the streets and put them into an all expense paid palacial home.

    You also have to remember that God is not human. We cannot hold a Deity to human standards. God has His own standards. He can do whatever He likes, and we have no right to judge Him. If you made people out of playdoh, and somehow could make them come alive, don't you have the right to squash them down if you want? After all , you made them. You are not on the same level with play doh.

    God is not on our level. He as far above us, as we are above a bacterial cell. You can't expect God to hold to human standards. He is not human.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but the cause (of what you have enumerated) is not God. You need to get to the bottom of things.

    The cause is sin (rebellion against God) and sin does not affect only those who practice it but even those who have no knowledge of sin. That's how bad sin is. Still there are people who say there is no sin. Well, let them deal with the all the problems if they think they can deal with them without God. It's an open challenge to them.

    1. men choose to use their free will to oppress others

    God inspired men to do what was right and stop these men.

    to covet means to want the free will of others

    people can use their free will to force others to do what they say.

    2. God never said he would keep us from life, good or bad.

    it rains on every one. it snows on every one. every one gets sick from disease. every one can get hurt from war because of men using their free will to hurt others.

    3. God never said he would keep us from life and its disasters, man made or by nature.

    he did say he would be with us even if we are in the valley of the shadow of death. psalms chapter 23

    4.

    a person to get relief has to do something to seek it. if you ask God to help you find a job but sit at home and never put in a application and never apply for anything will not find a job.

    you have to make a effort to look for help or a job.

    this is a loaded question: confident, Jesus became Jewish. He became born Jewish, lived a Jewish existence and died a Jew. Then alongside got here Paul who reported that individuals who believed in Jesus did not ought to stick to the Jewish regulation. of direction, there have been a style of interpretations approximately Jesus returned then. a lot of people disagreed with Paul, alongside with James and somewhat some others who believed which you mandatory to be Jewish (this is, stick to Jewish regulation) to be a follower of Christ. This became the 1st significant hurdle for early Christians. yet Paul's theology became ultimately familiar interior the tip.

    God gave us free will. You said it yourself.

    Why aren't YOU out there feeding the homeless? Why aren't YOU helping orphanages? Why aren't YOU giving to charities? Do you do YOUR part? Or are you just whining?

    God created nature. Natural disasters occur. It is a part of life.
