Think

Jesus loves children,
so your Book will tell.
But if they don’t know God
They’ll still go to Hell.

You shout in your zeal,
“Thou shalt not kill.”
And yet your kind God
slays more than we will.

A faith that condemns
the simplest act:
Eating from a tree
the Fruit of Fact,

run by a tyrant
calling for the death
of all those without
His name on their breath,

did not sit with me.
In fact, as I thought,
I slowly became
more and more distraught.

How could this Shepherd
send all of his sheep
into Damnation
and not even weep?

I quit believing
in a faith of gore.
I decided to
be Christian no more.

So when someone says,
“I will pray for you.”
I smile and answer,
“And I’ll think for two.”
I had to write something for Creative Writing. :shrug:

Ok, This is a vital concept for many to yet grasp. It is very obvious there is suffering in the world, and Christian's say God created the world. So it looks like we are hypocrytes when we say our God is loving when He created a world which has death, violence, and to many things to mention that go "wrong". Here are some important points:

God created man for mulitple purposes, one being to praise Him.

Praise Him of our own free will.

In order to have the option of choosing our purpose, praising God, there is the need of a counter option, without it, God would have a people who do not know what it really means to choose Him.

Since Adam did fall into sin, sin has been passed down through his seed.

vital point: Jesus was born to a virgin, therefore a man's seed of sin was not used.

God gave us salvation by sacrificing His Son, so we could continue to choose Him as our Saviour, inabling us to praise His Name justly.


Conclusion: there will always be sin in the world, however we always have salvation, so we still have the choice given to us since the beginning. The world is not for us, we are to be here spreading His Word and glorifying Him, but eternity in heaven is where our perfect lives will be.
