Bringing together non-believers …
I understand God created angels as his errand-boys and he gave them free-will. Unfortunately, one angel, despite inhabiting heaven with the living God, decided to rebel. His name was Satan and he has been causing problems ever since.
Should we blame God for Satan? Well, God is omniscient so he knew Satan would rebel and get up to his antics… and God could have decided to create all the other angels but not Satan. Consequently, we have to conclude that God WANTED Satan around doing his dirty tricks.
Satan’s dirtiest trick of all was to persuade Eve and her boyfriend to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. This one deed had us evicted from paradise, brought sin into the world and condemned us all to die. The suffering that flowed from this one dirty trick is immeasurable but it follows, as sure and night follows day, that God wanted all these bad things to happen. It was all part of God’s plan.
So you can believe in a God that positively wanted to see humans suffering by their billions or you can conclude the entire story is a badly conceived fairy tale.
I know which I find more credible.
