All for an Apple??

Often people say they don’t want to believe or don’t believe in God because He allows suffering. All of the suffering came into man’s life because we chose it. God warned us and told us if we ate of the tree or in other words disobeyed His command we would suffer and die. But we chose to listen to the wrong voice and fell hard into a world where we no longer lived in a perfect paradise.

The world is the way it is because we are what we are. And we chose this. We were living in perfection with someone so wonderful and with the most beautifully loving and kind heart, but we spit in His face and said “No, I want to do it my way.” In other words we rebelled and listened to the wrong voice.

God is just allowing us to have what we chose. It was our choice to turn away from His perfection. God allows the bad suffering in the world but does not cause it. That’s a huge difference. He is allowing us to reap the consequences of our poor behavior and our poor choices. If He did not allow suffering, how else would we learn the consequences of our poor choices. Please don’t blame God for our bad behavior.

Also, the question is not why does God allow the suffering, but why do we allow it? Just think of it, except for the physical illnesses and natural disasters, all other pain is caused by how badly we treat each other and refuse to love the way we were created to love. So where is our responsibility in all of this? Man has to accept the responsibility he plays in all of our pain.

May God Bless Your Day.
