“I wish I could understand why God allows such horrible things to happen to children”
Children or adults, is there a difference when people are made slaves?
As to the why, I believe in a judgement. Can you imagine a judgement without evidence. If no one harmed another or broke any of the commandments of God, with what is he going to use to judge mankind?
Instead man has forgotten there is a god keeping a book of life, notes if you will to properly and carefully judge the quick and the dead. Film at 11:00 if you really believe a full and complete accounting will be made of each man or woman’s journey through life.
I guess for me the bottom line would be faith in that God who created us to make all of the dastardly evil that takes place in this world past present and future against his children and his efforts to save them, will in the end be made right.
I accept that only a righteous and loving God is capable of making such heinous activity that has, is, and will take place, and some evil that perhaps even we cannot conceive of will be somehow made right by the atoning sacrifice of the only begotten son of God.
He took upon him all the pains, and suffering of his creation, man. I cannot conceive of how that was accomplished, but he did it for us, and so it is enough for me to know that in the end he has already accomplish what was necessary for the salvation of all.
The “progressives” don’t believe anyone is responsible for anything. It was the environment or genes that drove the individual to do the evil deed. Not their fault. They are atheists. They also refuse to follow the logical conslusions of their beliefs for when you follow that “trail of blame” to it’s source one arrives at The Garden with Adam and Eve. LOL. Like He said to Pilate, “I am the Truth.”
