For the Christian, the question of the question suffering becomes particularly difficult: why would God allow suffering? Orthodox Christianity recognizes that God is both all-powerful and good. The challenge presented to Christianity, however, is if God is both omnipotent and upright, why would he allow evil and suffering in the world? David Hume succinctly writes,
Furthermore, God is concerned about all that He has created. In fact, God is so concerned about His creation that He feeds, clothes and shelters them all. "God does not need us or the rest of creation for anything, yet we and the rest of creation can glorify him and bring him joy" (p. 161). God does not owe mankind anything, but mankind owes everything to God, including her life. Particular sections in the reading shares an interesting topic of God giving Himself glory.
This experience made me change how I felt about the role I play in the universe. I say this because I am more confused about God’s plan not only for me but for the whole universe. I wonder how he sees us compared to the universe. In conclusion, God made us for reasons I think that are unknown to man. God has a plan for all of us that we aren’t yet aware of.
The verse reads, “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” God doesn’t call the qualified—He qualifies the called. This brings comfort to me because it makes me realize that I don’t have to rely on my own strength to accomplish great feats for the Lord. All that God asks of me and everyone else is to remain obedient to His call and trust in Him. He will provide all that we need. The Lord has a proven track record of taking least likely individuals to do some of the greatest work for Him.
Who among them does not know that God 's hand did all this? Of course, they do not know it consciously. The point, as with the heavens, is that their nature and existence proclaim this message to us. Observing them should convincingly demonstrate the truth, so these are lessons we can learn from them. Acts 17:24-19 Paul taught heathen idol worshipers that there is a true and living God who made the world and rules over it.
The Word of God says: There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Gal. 3:28) Introduction God created humanity and everything surrounding them in perfect beauty and harmony living together with God in eternity. All creation existed in His sufficiency and as a community for the praise and glory of the Almighty God and Creator. However, when sin came to lord over human lives, they became self-centered with a heart bent on evil desires.
Why should we care? Once one attempts to take God out of the picture, they will have a huge void in the place of God’s love. Finding no value in oneself can lead to some serious mental issues, combine that with them not valuing human life in general, and one has a recipe for
God does not create everything to be perfect. If we would be perfect without sins, flaws, and problems then there would be no God, then we would be totally equal as God, and there would be no one higher and lower than us. There would be sinners, atheist, offenders in His own creation because simply He gave us free will. God allows evil to exist because of the free will. Humans is given their God-given freedom which is the free will, it is the power to make a decision of one individual instead of taking or having God to decide what to do.
In the Christian life, we do not suffer for nothing, for everything can find meaning when we incorporate it into Christ. In this secularized world, there is no idea or concern to search the cause for the particular problem especially for the problem of suffering because it transcends man himself and goes beyond his understanding. Only very few are ready to face difficulties and to find meaning in their suffering. Many do not bother about the sense of their life. In this situation how can we explain to them the meaning of life which they have received from God as a gift, in a special way when they face and endure sufferings?
Everyone had some problems and goals to do in their lives but what if something not expected came and change everything. Are these problems that bad? Are they important for us?
