Why does god let us suffer

This horse has been beaten for a long time and now it is waking up from its death bed, defying all the taunts aimed at it. Finally someone has the answers for why we suffer.

God allowing suffering has four main causes. Suffering can come from your own sin, the sin of others, God testing you, or so that God might be glorified through it; unfortunately, if one of these is not the case then we are not certified to seek an explanation. Endurance will bear fruit. These unfortunate situations will ultimately bring glory to God.

Apart from sin being an imaginary ailment created by pastors to have a reason to offer their cure, why would an omni anything test you? How warped is this kind of thinking? And how can one say if any of the answers above doesn’t deal with your case, then you can’t seek an explanation. There is no room for redress. God can fuck us all he cares and we can’t ask why? Thanks goodness, no gods have been found anywhere. In the end we suffer so that god can receive glory. Now you know the answer.

We are further given scripture readings that absolve god from telling men why they suffer. The OP writes

Does a clay pot dare argue with its maker, a pot that is like all the others? Does the clay ask the potter what he is doing? Does the pot complain that its maker has no skill? Do we dare say to our parents, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ The Lord, the holy God of Israel, the one who shapes the future, says: ‘You have no right to question me about my children or to tell me what I ought to do! I am the one who made the earth and created human beings to live there.’”-Isaiah 49:9-12 

We also get a passage from Job, which doesn’t answer why we suffer only that we shouldn’t complain when god makes us suffer. The author writes

Consider the joy of those corrected by God! Do not despise the chastening of the Almighty when you sin. For though he wounds, he also bandages. He strikes, but his hands also heal.”-Job 5:17-18

5 reasons why I will never be an atheist: A response

Friends, I think this is sad, very sad and where as there are those reason can at least reach, I would consider one of those lost cases. The author gives these reasons why they would not be atheist.

1. Prayer is an important part of my life

I have no beef with a person who thinks god answers their prayers. Having been brought up religious, I can tell you I haven’t had the need to pray since my deconversion and it doesn’t even bother me. This first reason should have been changed to read; I like to talk to myself and think that something is actually happening. Am afraid if I stop talking with myself, I will become a hopeless wreck.

2. I dislike the atheist mindset

Well, since I don’t know the atheist mindset and I know you too don’t, I will paste her words here.

There is a passage in Isaiah in which God reproves one saying, “I am, and there is no one besides me.” I feel like that would be my mindset as an atheist, and I want nothing to do with that.

We don’t know atheists who say that, so we will ignore it.

3. Atheism would close my mind.

We actually laughed when we read this. She tells us

Abandoning belief in God would close my mind. I see atheism as giving up higher thinking, as atheism does not take the time to understand why suffering and a good God both exist, for instance, while belief in God opens doors to reason. Atheism would limit possibilities and tend to small, rigid thinking for me.

Is there a way this person can be rescued from this self delusion? This statement is loaded, it assumes a god exist and that would explain why suffering exists. It is not the atheist problem that the theist has to deal with the problem of evil, no, far from it. The theist makes a claim that his god is good and all powerful, and evil exists. They must explain this anomaly. The atheist says shit does happen.

4. I need a relationship with god

I need to have a relationship with someone who knows everything about me and knows my life story. Believing in God the way I do means believing there is a being out there who truly understands me, and it means believing I always have a confidant, both of which I need.

We have no comment. This is a person who is ripe for slavery. Any slave masters out there?

5. I cannot imagine being an atheist

I sometimes, for fun, try to imagine being an atheist, and I just cannot do it. It is impossible for me to even imagine ending belief in God. My strong belief in God is a huge part of who I am, and I feel like abandoning belief in him would be like abandoning my identity.

Well, you are not very imaginative.

I really hope I did not offend atheists reading this;

Fortunately no. I only sympathise with you.

 I simply wanted to rule out at least one religious mindset as I figure out where I stand spiritually.

No, atheism is not a religion. We are non religious and without belief.
