Nonsense ...... what do you want to protect with the help of God - your bodies or your souls? The human body is waiting for death in a variety of ways .... The human soul cannot be saved without God .... guarantees are given only by an insurance policy

Because God gives me both joys and indescribable impressions of feeling Himself, and because God (my God) gives me both difficulties and terrible trials so that I develop, overcoming them.

I generally grateful to the suffering, the hardships that happen to me. Sounds like a fanatic's speech. But this is a conscious position, I just see how it really changes me, and how I become stronger and better. It's like a difficult task at school. It's hard, I often have to repeat, but you are constantly growing.

When asked, what does my children's life have to do with my tasks, I will answer - they have their own destiny. I believe in the repetition of life, and that everything is decided at a deep level. They have their own life experience to go through, I have mine. They, among other things, choose me as part of their experience and vice versa. Everything is closely intertwined.

Because God is a unique opportunity that suits almost everyone. He gives politicians the opportunity to blame him or start a war for him. Gives priests earnings. "People" are given the moral right not to do a damn thing and bend their necks, but not to answer for anything. He only interferes with science, but science has long ago butchered God into a nut, and is not interested in this miserable corpse. See how many benefits.

Because God gives hope for eternal life in paradise, and besides, Christians are ready for suffering for the sake of Christ's Truth. But not all of them, of course, most believers of course seek magical help from God.

Answer 5

That game is in the heads.

God gave free will to man. And a man, having created problems for himself, runs to God and says, "and me for INTO." Until a person learns to be responsible for his actions CAM, he will burn, drown, hurt from incurable ailments. Is it God's fault - no. God is ready to accept us as we are if we come to him.

This is for believers.

Faith is what stops a person from permissiveness, thereby acting as a punishment for a misdemeanor; if it were not for her then life would become much worse and the actions of certain people ceased to have logic, moderation and prudence

Answer 7

Faith is confidence in the justice of God based on facts and the trust that he will not allow irreparable harm. He will bring our dead loved ones back to life. Read the biblical book. Job and Bitie 2,3 chap. It tells about the controversial issue between God and Satan, it becomes clear why there is so much suffering on earth, why Satan is allowed to rule the world.

For me to receive anything from God, even if this suffering or death in childhood, is His providence and I will perceive it as a gift from God, because I love him and want to be reunited with him in eternity.

Answer 9

Of course, you gave an example that would cause a feeling of guilt among believers for the fact that their God is so angry and indifferent. But did he build a cinema? did he seal the fire exits and leave a specialist in case of fire. Did he bring these children to this ill-fated theater? My belief is not a guarantee that He will or must protect me. I need this so that my life would be filled with at least some meaning I also have something to show, but I don’t know who. A year before the age of thirty my daughter died of cancer. Cancer was not operable and these two months I lived like hell, seeing my daughter fading away. There were nights full of prayers and tears, there were talks about death with her. About the fact that we might meet after. It was these soul-saving conversations that helped the child to come to terms with the fact that life is over. But do not despair, because there is a hope that after death there is another life and we will meet loved ones there and family. When she died, I had a strong indignation at the Almighty. Why is my child, why did you give her so much time. These questions tormented me, I didn’t really do enough for people that you would punish me. nothing worse than experiencing death of children. But a year has passed and life takes its toll. And I am still alive and sometimes I advise people. And faith in God has strengthened. Do you know what made me humble myself? A child of 17 years old was brought to me, all these seventeen years this child has been drinking medicine and he gives injections twice a day. They take him in a wheelchair. Looking at him, I suddenly thought that my daughter's fate was much better. She had to suffer for only two months. And this child all his life. Did he commit a grave sin in his past life, or his parents conceived drunk with an infection in their bodies. Why God allows him to suffer. Wouldn't it be better to just die, saving himself and his parents from suffering. But you should have seen the eyes of these parents. They have so much love, so much compassion, so much For the sake of these eyes, this state of mind, suffering can be tolerated. And then why do we blame God for our mistakes and failures? Neither Satan, nor Vladimir, nor San Sanych from the housing office. Not a drunk child who conceived himself. But at the same time we we decide how to live, what to drink. to smoke. with ke m to sleep, where to go and with whom. At least once you asked God, what to do, how to be, what to do? No, this is beyond our understanding, and who is he so that I would consult with him. So I am responsible for my life is me, not God. And to the question why he allows suffering, I will answer this way. While you are in pain, you are alive. And everything that does not kill us makes us stronger.

Answer 10
January, 2021

Does a believer or an unbeliever ask? In any case, you do not fully understand what faith is. Faith out of fear, out of desire for some magical "guarantees" is not faith, it is not true love for the Creator. The believer is in harmony with the world: he humbly accepts what he cannot change, and works hard at what he can change. Suffering - they are like a hardening for the spirit, Christ himself is portrayed as suffering and compassionate - but who has overcome the spiritual path to the end is freed from any grief and receives the highest peace and bliss.

Answer 11
January, 2021

Belief in God cannot be a guarantee of receiving anything. Faith in God opens the way to God, and whether you go this way or not depends only on you. And God has nothing to do with it. You are standing outside in the rain. I opened the door of my house and I call you to my place, but you do not go - am I to blame for this? Well, of course I was a bad barker, I had to dance ...

Answer 12

Only belief in something gives the meaning of existence, for materialists life is meaningless.

Proof that life is meaningless for materialists:
1. In the material world, sooner or later, humanity is guaranteed to be destroyed, whether in a hundred years or in googol years, what difference does it make to a materialist if humanity is doomed anyway?
2. Elon Musk and others ...: From a materialistic point of view, you are just the program of some pervert from the distant future, when computing power has become so great that every Shkololo can launch a model of the earth from the 21st century, just to watch Angelina Jolie.
3. In general, your life does not make sense simply because your life is finite, and you don’t believe in the existence of a soul.

Answer 13

Because the promise of life after death in Hell or in Paradise has not been canceled. And whether there is an afterlife or does not exist is not proven by either side. So people hope at random, maybe they'll be lucky to get to Paradise if they go to church once again.
