I Wish People Would Not Blame God For the World's Troubles

Anybody who hates it when others fault God for all the bad stuff in life 588 People

    Taken From A Philosophy Class !

    God created humans. He gave them free will. With that free will came a choice, to do good or to do bad. Without that choice we would never be able to learn from our mistakes, or move on. This choice allows us to grow spiritually to become more like God. So that when we die, we...

    I thank God! every day for the strength I have

    been given to survive the struggles I have been through, and the life I have been blessed with. I will admit to occasionally asking "why? what is the purpose for my suffering?" but I soon remember that God was there every second. and in darkness when I am truly alone, God is...

    It's Our Fault.

    I do believe that there is an omnipotent universal force, maybe not "God", but some type of force. But the truth is, whether there is a God or not, It is not responsible for us. It doesn't have to do anything for us. It never has, and it never will. We as humans are responsible...

    It's our fault that we are sinners.

    We are the ones who cause most of the world's disasters. We are the crimes, not anyone else. Our job is to love one another like Jesus loved us and when we die of natural causes that is our fate. We can't go making other people's lives short because of stupid decisions that we...

    Just like a bunch of bad boys,caught putting gum in suzy's hair."Oh no teacher,it wasn't me,it was him" It wasn't me who frigged up,it was God's fault for letting me do it.It just seems that no none is responsible for their own actions any more.Where I live,if a man goes to a bar...

    The reason why you should never blame God, Because its us Sinners fault in the first place, who ate the apple off the tree? Adam and Eve and it did grant Satan to b a part of this world of our God's Creations, which means now Satan can do whatever he wants and try to force us to...

    I don't blame the Christian god

    for the troubles now. If the bible were true then in the Old Testament he or she should be put to death for he or she's wrath. Hypocrisy at its finest. Now days people pray to a god that let's these things happen like the tsunamis, 9/11, and major disasters like Katrina...

    There is no reason to blame God

    for the worlds problems. The Bible explains very well why we have disease, illness, and natural disasters. Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, and God's punishment was humans were to live with all the horrible things we do. That's not to say He doesn't still perform...

    Humans

    All the worlds troubles are caused by human beings, & human beings, alone. God put us here, but not to destroy everything & ruin everything as we have for so long done. It is not God's fault the world is in such peril, but humans, ourselves.

    God didnt do this. We did. Ever since the earliest days of man, there has been conflict. We started out, only knowing love. But as time went on, we became accustomed to the way of the world. We began to feel greed, and hate, and ignorance. This is not God. This is what we...

     Whenever this subject comes up, it's like talking to a wall. If you talk to the wall and the wall talks back, then something really weird is going on.  Or maybe worse than talking to a wall! Sometimes it's like I'm talking to the air!

    Put together all the tenderest love you know

    the deepest you have ever felt and the strongest that has ever been poured out upon you and heap upon it all the love of all the loving human hearts in the world and then multiply it by infinity and you will begin perhaps to have some faint glimpse of the love God has for you

    World Troubles

    God didn't do anything but being loving.  It isn't his fault and he's not to blame for anything.  In other words, it is the people who are messed up and causes the world's troubles.

    Who else would you blame?

    We're powerless to do anything. At least the Gods could have put in a little bit of effort. I know this is controversial, but think from your heart, you know it's correct.

    That people blame God to avoid taking responsibility for their role in "the way the world is". It's an excuse. God didn't elect leaders that became evil dictators, God did not opress the poor, or muder children. We did. And as long as we as the human race continue to...
