ignore the obvious contradiction? Example: a person in my neighborhood claims a child that acquires AIDS is "paying" for the sin of premarital sex (even though the child contracted this disease via a blood transfusion). Yet, if Ms. Know-it-all-Neighbor is right, why would she knowingly attend church services while suffering from a stomach virus? Isn't she knowingly putting others at risk - and if someone catches her virus, by her definition, aren't they "paying" for her sin of indifference?

I am Jewish and we do not blame it on God
A Chef writes a recipe. Ignored, bad cooking results. We don't blame the Chef. So too, God gives instruction regarding sex. When not followed, consequences result. God isn't to blame. He is simply the creator of the recipe.
I thought gods were allknowing What is the value of a test if the results are known before the test is given. Befor you are born. Is the god of Islam less powerful then other gods who are allknowing. But they too test. Something askew here.
What I understand from your question is that you want God to just create us and send us straight to where we belong for He knows what would have done. Wouldn't it seem unfair to us, being judged on things we don't even know about? God is just.
