If God is omnipotent then why doesn't he destroy Satan and free people from war, death, hunger, poverty etc?

Christians consider God to be all powerful. Why did he wanted Jesus to suffer in the cross for the sins of mankind. As he is all powerful, the death of Jesus is not necessary for freeing man from his sins. God, as he is all powerful, can free from our sins without the loss of a life. He can create a utopian world where there are no diseases, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime and corruption as he is all powerful and can do anything he want to. As he loves us, then why doesn't he do anything. Is he sleeping. Christians say that you can get anything you want if you ask to God in prayer (Matthew 21:22) but why don't they pray and ask for the solution to global warming, pollution, climate change, terrorist attacks and so on.

    God's word has already answered all of your concerns. Note the following scriptures:

    James 1:13 - When under trial let no man say that I am being tried by God, For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.

    Deuteronomy 32:4 - The Rock, perfect is his activity. For all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness with whom there is no injustice. Righteous and upright is he.

    Romans 6:23 - For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Psalms 37:10, 11 - And just a little longer and the wicked one will be no more. And you will certainly give attention to his place and he will not be, But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

    Revelation 21:4 - And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

    Matthew 24:14 - This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to the nations and then the end will come.

    Psalms 83:18 - That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

    2 Peter 3:9 - Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.

    The Garden of Eden was the place were there were no diseases,destruction,hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime and corruption but humans blew it. God not only knew it was going to happen but He also had a plan. God send His son to restore the relationship lost with humans and eventually sealing up hell and taking care of the devil once and for all and destroying this world and creating a new old that will be even better than the original Garden of Eden. Once the new earth is created, there will never be another fall of man, never again be sin and death.

    It will happen, in God's time. He is giving everyone a chance to accept Him. That's why Jesus died, because the punishment for sin is death, and Jesus died so we don't have to die spiritually. God could create a perfect place on earth, but look who would live here? People are far from perfect, and we are free creatures, so in no time, everything would be torn apart by people. Humans are not God's slaves. We do pray for an end to suffering, but, if you think about it, human suffering can be traced back to the free will of humanity.

    In the first place there is no global warming. Ask the 31,000 climatologist who say the statement is a hoax and have brought suit against Al Gore for such false information being released. By creating this facade, one of agendas the globalists are trying to pass is the cap and trade agreement, which is the central foundation for Communism. It's all about control.

    Secondly, it's not God's plan to snap His fingers and make everything the way He ultimately wants it to be. Of course, He could do it in an instant, but He has created a very intricate plan that we are all living out.

    No, God is not sleeping. "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. " (2 Peter 3.9)

    If you ask me, God has a love for us that is soooooo deep, we can't comprehend it.

    Every thing happens in Gods time, not ours.

    As Christians we suffer with Christ, the death of Jesus was necessary, for it was only God himself that could pay the wage of sin for us. With out Christ's crucifixion, there would of been no hope for the rest of us.

    The disobedience of men brought in disease, hunger, death, etc, So you see if we did What God Told us to Do we would have none of these things, why do people reject God, but then want him to clean up after them?

    I being a Christian, still need God to clean up after the messes I created by my own disobedience, and if I have faithful to confess and repent, God also is faithful to forgive.

    At Christ return, we will receive our inheritance in Christ, and that is the Kingdom of God, and there will be no more disease, destruction, or sadness, no more death.Praise Be to Him.

    Does that mean we sit back and do nothing? absolutely not, We are to reach out and do what we can for the poor, the helpless, those who do not get justice, the widow, the orphaned, so where is peoples charity towards those who are less fortunate than we?

    Go with God.

    Jehovah God has a set time limit for the Earth because of Satan challenging His sovereignty. We are all suffering because of Adam and Eve's sin. This time limit is to show mankind the consequences of wanting to rule themselves without the full protection and care of Jehovah God.

    Basically we are in Satan's hands, badness flourishes in our Earth because of this but fortunately once this period of time is over, Jehovah will reclaim His rightful position as Universal Sovereign over us all and will get rid of Satan and his cronies once and forever, PERMANENTLY! Then, all wickedness, sickness, death, everything God didn't wish humans to suffer will vanish PERMANENTELY too!!

    Our Earth will be a complete Paradise and we as Jehovah's followers will be at peace, enjoying our eternal lives!

    Man, I can't wait 'til that day!

    why do you think God should remove your sin for free?

    that would make us to sin even more

    you said about Jesus. In olden days sacrificing lambs and other animals was a way to get rid of your sins, but that system didn't work, they sinned and sacrifice and that just kept repeating over and over again soooooooooooooo Jesus became a sacrifice would actually took all our sins away so we celebrate the mass and in mass through Jesus's Body and blood Jesus washes all out sins and bring us even more closer to Father in heaven. And when you are in mass you must've heard this

    "Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world"

    Lamb of God is Jesus

    and who said God is not going to get Satan, God gonna kick his *** without a doubt its gonna happen dunno when its in the bible.

    You said about no diseases, destruction, hunger ............

    there was something like that in garden of Aden but you know what happen there don't you because of it we have to go through all of these.

    now Global warming, pollution, climate change................ who do you think these are created in the first place? its us we ask God to get of it on the same time we actually causes them.

    and if you ask would you ask something like that or would you ask to save someone's life?

    and God does loves us without a doubt he does from the beginning God loved us more than anything

    would you give your own child to become a sacrifice? imagine how painful it must've been to Father in Heaven

    God is kinda and good and Certainly God is powerful Don't Test you God you will regret it

    god wouldnt be lots of a god if he slaved human beings and didnt enable each individual to have loose will. Why would he do away with evil and suffering? some peoples destinies are formed by ability of suffering and soreness. it is yet a actual international.. its no longer even authentic.. its all a try. i additionally locate it confusing to have faith that god can intrude, the two because of his very own regulation or this is a place between realities.. and how we prefer to stay here makes a decision the universe we finally end up in... being that the universe is likely infinite, with a infinite sort of universes.. no longer a christian.... basically my own ideals/present day opinion... and that i assure you there is way greater advantageous than basically us lowly people... and as for micro organism and earthquakes... look how we manage the earth.. im confident it has to do with the earth cleansing itself... we are fairly villainous in right this moment.. :( stripping from the earth no longer giving decrease back... im confident quickly the cleansing cycle will beguine. and if we dont replace we die out... we make our very own destiny although.. dont blame god or any entity for something that happens to us... our race is previous lost.. sturdy success to absolutely everyone :))))

    He is got His own clock; not like ours, 24 hs in a day. You only live 85 years at most, the Universe has more than 15 billion years of being Created.

    That shows how silly is Man's reasoning.

    Angels cannot die so Satan and his minions are roasting in hell forever.

    Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

    God does free his faithful from these things. Heaven is the reward for our faithfulness. In the meanitime, bot hthe righteous and unrighteous must experience tribulation from time to time.

    Isa 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken [it].

    Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
