Why did God not intervene in WW2, when people were being gassed on an industrial scale? Surely he could have stopped it if he had wanted to?

Surely you assume the OPPOSITE or your question makes no sense

Humans have always fought in wars. While that was going on the Muslim's were walking across the African continient killing all the native;s who lived there taking their herds and land. Just as the Europeans did in North and South America. They killed in the millions the Native americans in two continients. So which side is God on? When the earth was in a similar state it was full of violence because of humans God caused a flood. Which drowned all the people and it stopped the violence. Then a short time later Noah's descendents started fighting again. What has God been doing all this time while people kill each other? Should be the question? He has been selecting reighteous people to bring back in a resurretion and let them live again. Adam and Eve failed most people fail but God will complete what he wanted when he destroys once again all the wicked people and as Jesus said, "few would be saved"

Humanity joined Satan's rebellion against God in the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve broke God's law in order to decide for themselves what is good and what is bad (Genesis 3:1-6 ). Later, in Noah's days, some of God's angels who wanted to live independently of God also joined Satans rebellion. (Genesis 6:1-4)
For a limited time, God has allowed these rebels to exercise free will and let humanity rule themselves without interfering. Contrary to what many people believe, it is not God who rules the world. According to Jesus "the ruler of this world " is Satan (John 14:30). Currently "The whole world is under the control of the evil one." - 1 John 5:19
God "causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Matthew 5:45). He does not normally intervene to stop people from doing bad things or to punish them. "Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." - 2 Peter 3:9
However, the Bible says that God "has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed." - Acts 17:31 Eventually, God will use Jesus to undo the evil that Satan has done. - Read 1 John 3:8. Empowered by God, Jesus will destroy Satan. (Romans 16:20) Then, God will rule mankind and restore the human race to the life of happiness and peace he originally intended. - Read Revelation 21:3-5.

God was in court waiting on the DNA results which would prove
that some little dipwad from Bethlehem was *not* his son after all.
God was proven not to be his father.
So, Jesus ... NOT God ... allowed all of those Jews to die because they, and their ancestors, did not believe that he was the messiah.
Conclusion: Jesus needed psychiatric help. Badly.

A long time ago, God led man. Then men decided they wanted a King to lead them and NOT God. So God said "Fine" And left men to rule themselves.
The results you are seeing today, is a direct result of humans ruling over humans.
So instead of blaming God for this or that, blame the right party, and that is humans.
Do you sit there in your chair complaining how God allows this or that, or causes this or that, and yet YOU do nothing to help.
Do YOU help the homeless?
Do YOU give to those who are starving?
Do YOU help the needy?
Do YOU visit the sick?
Do YOU give to the poor?
Do YOU give to organizations who help others?
So, YOU don't do anything but complain that God is not doing anything? How does that not make you the biggest hypocrite there is?
The HOMELESS are here, because YOU do nothing to help that situation. Have YOU petitioned any laws to help the homeless? Have YOU tried to gather up donations to buy a building for the Homeless? What have YOU done to help the Homeless? OH, yeah, YOU sit in your chair and DO NOTHING but complain about God letting it all happen. Pathetic.
Mat_23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
How are YOU any different than the Pharisees. "God doesn't do anything about the Homeless people", all the while YOU don't lift one single finger to help the Homeless people.
People, the world is in the condition it is in right now, because HUMANS are in charge, NOT GOD. When God returns to the Earth, that is when HE will be in Charge and reign over all the Kings of the Earth, Then God will be in Charge of the Earth, but He is NOT in charge of it right now, Humans are.
So all those who are chair sitters and do nothing to help the world or the condition of the world, should SHUT UP. And stop whining about things, and DO something about it.

Actually, it was WW1 where gas was used on a massive scale. The allies in WW2 formed a pact to not use chemical weapons unless Hitler used them first, and Hitler had been so emotionally scarred by a mustard gas attack in WW1 that he refused to authorise any use of gas on enemy troops, which was kind of ironic considering he had no hesitation about gassing people in concentration camps

It’s because there is no God
