Re: Do You Have Faith in God (if so...then why??)
Yes I've been through various diseases(some of them still not cured and just have to man up) I've known the answer for a while (from God's point of view).
Well If you studied the bible, you'd had an answer. For example before I studied the bible there were things that I thought were true but aren't for example your family who is full of Christians probably don't know either because they only follow what the pope/priest says (if they even listen). For example the bible doesn't teach about hell, they distorted the bible because Hades means the grave (dying) not Hell Fire and torment lol.
People suffer in this world because this is not the world God had in mind. It's only a phase, for whatever reason it's only a phase. So everything that happens is random and bad things. Good people suffer because they got bad luck so do bad guys.
If this world was governed by God, then death and diseases would not exist at all, neither would tears.
There's a passage saying : "And every tear would be wiped out from their eyes".
By saying that it means that when God rules the earth, there won't be a single drop of sadness. Of course not everyone can enter that kingdom, only a few. What would be the point of having bad individuals and start chaos again?
"Many will say to me in that day : "Lord lord, did we not prophesy in your name, expel demons in your name and do many powerful works in your name" and Jesus said "Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness. I never knew you"".
Which means that even a big majority of Christians will probably not make it.
Another passage : "Broad and spacious is the road leading to destruction and many will walk through it. Narrow and cramped is the road leading to the kingdom and few will find it".
Everything is in the bible, pick a good neutral translation too like the NIV.
In resume, this is not the world God had in mind so anything that happens in it doesn't really matter. Yes we all suffer but it's all a phase, there will be a day when tears are no more but again not everyone will be in it which makes sense. Really bad and perverted people shouldn't be there in the first place, it would really screw things up again.
I know you have many more questions but if you really want to find an answer from God's point of view, pick up the bible and not what the priests says.
Trust me, it's all there.
Edit: If you have more questions, send me a PM. I don't come to this page that often but the PM will go to my email. I'm not that blind as many atheists will think either. I hold a degree in theoretical physics and another one in electrical engineering. So I can give you pretty good answers from any point of view, I hope you recover from your diseases (I did recover from the most fatal one which started a few months ago but it will reduce my lifespan pretty drastically hence my name Itachi xD).
