    Why say God isn't good if were only reaping what we sowed for?

    Why complain about all the destruction when it is our sins that has caused it?
    If we would repent and turn from our sins all this sad stuff wouldn't be taking place. God gave us a choice- choose blessings or curses- He even gave a hint choose LIFE!"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!DUET 30:19
    And are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.Rom 3:24

    We need to accept Christ as our Personal Savior in order to live a "new life in Christ."  This is repenting and turning away from our sinful life into a life of blessing of Christ.  Amen sister!

    how about all the babies that die in pain due to natural disasters. how about all the people who are killed in car accidents. how about all the places throughout history that were destroyed by volcanoes and tsanamies. oh ya, it's sinning to blame. perhaps if people took blame for themselves, believed in themselves and quit trying to make it look like a "god" is going to help them we would have a better world. humans have ALWAYS worshipped some kind of god and so far we haven't gotten any further ahead.

    God is not bad.  He is a just God and loves us more than anyone else in this world could ever love us.  The bad things that happen to us are allowed by God to either bring us back to him or cause us to repent of unconfessed sins in our lives.  God wants us to be close to him.  Sometimes in our lives we forget about God and stray from him.  God never leaves us.  We leave him.  When we confess our sins and ask forgiveness,God reunites us with himself and He will bless us.  That is why we should pray and thank God for the bad things in our lives as well as the good.  It is the bad things that cause us to grow and stretch our faith in God so that we can do more for his kingdom.

    As an atheist, what I perceive this to amount to is "believe in me or I'll make you suffer". If God was "good", the option of suffering wouldn't even be on the table. And no matter how bad anything we do is, eternal punishment is never justified for it. I find it distressing and disturbing that people can honestly believe that you deserve eternal and infinite suffering for not taking entirely on faith (i.e. without a shred of evidence) that a so-called omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and omnibenevolent being exists.

    With the gift of choice comes the responsibility of understanding, and we must learn to understand the consequences of our choices.  We may not like or understand the result of our choices, but we cannot remove ourselves from the consequences when a bad choice is made.  It is the Will of God that none be lost, but the reality of it all is that many will be.  God is a God of order, and to be fair He has set in place rules which He also has to be bound by.  He is not a man that he should lie… His word will not return void.  In the goodness of his love for us, He has given warning and explanation of what to expect.   Mercy is found in the fact that God concerns Himself with us in the first place; God’s laws are given to direct the choices we make.  When children are instructed about the dangers of playing with fire, are their parents to blame when they don't act accordingly?  Innocent lives fall victim to greed, violence, and the misuse of power every day, and the blame must be borne by those at fault.  The laws of reaping and sowing have been established from the beginning and God cannot be held for their misuse.  Sinful man routinely tries to create exceptions that fit his desires, but remember… dark deeds do come to the light.

    It is only to shift the blame to GOD knowing full well it is from their own free will and choices in life that will automatically produce what you get because of the established laws that governs the earth and everything on it , beneath it, and above it. 1. Human beings on it; 2. Worms beneath it; 3. Birds above it flying in the sky.
