You had a post about wanting help from Christians hoping to (re)convert. I was going to reply but unfortunately i had computer trouble and was not able to do so. I really wanted to reply but your post has been overtaken and I’m a lil late lol but hope you don’t mind i thought id leave you a shout… I really believe you are asking the wrong question… Not why isn’t god preventing evil but why has he not let us feel the wrath for the evil we have committed? If god stops evil he has to stop it all. He cannot just pick and choose or he is not a fair and just God. If he stops evil he would have to stop us too right? Cuz we have all done evil stuff… He gives us choices in life and sometime our choices are not always good… He loves us and wants to save us. Yes it pains him that we have suffering in our life but we also are blessed. Read the book of Job for encouragement… it shows how we accept the blessings in life but we must also accept the bad… This is not a world full of physical boundaries that God made to set us up for struggle… we made the boundaries ourselves (or Adam and Eve did in the beginning if you prefer) by disobeying god. This is a life full of choices. Everyone has sinned. period. and even just that one evil thought parts you from god. Yes god has the power, but he does not stop evil so that he can have mercy on us. Sounds weird at first but that’s what it really comes down to. He wants to save us but we have to make that choice… God cannot show his blessings and mercies without the hardships we go through. And maybe… every struggle we go through is really that blessing and mercy in disguise… like i grew up with my grandparents because my mom abandoned me to do drugs and party. But if that did not happen my grandpa would have never had the joy of being a father to me and my sister which he claims to have been the greatest joy of his life… a blessing in disguise… Hope this is encouraging. Sorry I’m late lol :)
