    Why is there an almighty God, so many people dies of hunger daily? Why so many people gets sick with incurable illness like my dad? Why we don't get an answer from someone? I believe in God I've seen many good things happen and I think that God = The amount of Faith you have on something and that something is YOU! don't believe in anything...just believe in yourself and you will succeed in life.

      People die of hunger daily because of the political and economic systems. Food surpluses are hoarded by Europe in order to create scarcity and therefore keep prices sufficiently high to make food production economical. Developing nations are forced to open up their markets to foreign corporations who flood their economies with goods at prices that locals cannot compete with.

      People get incurable illnesses because, bacteria and virus mutatate; our bodies are weakened by toxins from the environment, and at each cell division some of the DNA is lost or corrupted.

      God said that His Kingdom was within us and told us to do the things that He did and greater things because He was going home after the resurrection. So the ball is our court to change the world in our immediate vicinity. If we sit on our arses asking God to come and do it, he'll just leave us waiting a long time.

        LOL! Did you forget about the USA? Doesn't that make your explanation moot?

    when something bad happens who do you blame God and choose to leave God out of the equation of life because you didn't get the help you needed.

    if you cannot see any bad things in the world then can you really appreciate the good that you have?

    most diseases are kept incurable by governments as well. not allowing drugs to come into the market for cancer for example because the FDA doesn't want to lose out on the 500 million they get a year from pharma companies... will you blame God for creating the FDA? chemotherapy/radiation are technologies of the late 70's, which are still being used today ... does that make sense with all the technological advancement? on another note .. ever since the united nations have been formed there have been about 65 wars in the world ... is it just a money making technique by the ones involved ... if you've seen the movie called lord of war with nicholas cage ... it shows how you can make money out of war.

    i've said it in posts before ... it's the people where the fault lies not religion. God will not stop every bully for you.
