Why do we assign to God the pettiness of man, when God is full of graciousness and love?
God is invented for this particular purpose, to shift responsibility. Then why do you complain for god?
Man needs someone to blame - so they blame God, what they fail to realize is that if it wasn't for God they would not be alive today. There are millions of people dyeing this very moment, while God has been kind enough to keep them alive.
Many people think that they have come into existence purely by chance, bit like they'll become millionaires by playing the lottery.
you got it right. people assign these things because people invented god so the concept is obviously going to be used to our convienience. i promise if god was real, worshipping him and knowing him would be nothing like what is practiced. the problem is that humans need someone to blame for their shortcomings, so inventing a god works perfect.
Who's "we?" At least in this lifetime, I haven't assigned such attributes to God.
But people have varying levels of intelligence and attitude. This may be why most of the pantheistic societies attributed to their gods all of the baser human qualities. Such things perhaps helped them to explain the apparent fickleness of nature.
Well in this world my friend we as people or human beings have to blame someone for our misfortunes. for this sadly we do blame God. Now personally I feel as though they believe that if we blame him, that somehow their problems will bee solved. you know kind of like your mother and the good ol' "guilt trip". Those are my thoughts on the matter.
which being, full of graciousness and love, allows children to die of hunger and cancer? if we can attribute all that is good to him, why can't we also attribute to him all that is bad?
It is human folly to equate God to his own level. Since man is petty, he assign the same quality to God. Secondly man says, God punish the man but the reality is our own sins punishes us and it is not God. God is a mere witness, absolutely unaffected by the events of the world and He is Ever in Bliss.
People want God to identify with them on thier level. One individual can only comprehend so much information and imagine so much. The individual would have to put the idea of God in terms that they could understand so it makes sense to them.
God may or may not be full of love and grace, but if a person does not experience this then one could see why they may think that God may have petty qualities like human kind.
What woiuld we do if we didn't have someone to blame for the suffering in life?
For some God is a means of taking out their frustration and placing it somewhere.
This is a sad habit of humanity.
God is our source of comfort and if we simply spend our time blaming God for the things that don't go our way, we miss out on the gift we have available to us.
If only we could practice patience and wait to see what God has available for us, we would come to realize that the gifts we receive are far greater than any of our petty desires.
Thy will be done!!! Amen

As a person raised to believe in the message that has been preached for years about God and Jesus, and what they can do, and how merciful they are, I have never been able to understand why people continue to pray to God, when He doesn't prevent something He could have, clearly, prevented,...

God never lets people down, he may want something of you and you did not give it to him, therefore you are in the wilderness holding onto what god needs to get rid of, slowly you fall away and before you know it, you are outside the presence of god in you. And now all that is left is bitter hatred...
