It depends upon who you are asking to. Some people do not believe in God, and some does. But as for me, it doesn't really matter.. Things happening in one person's lives are consequences or rewards from his decisions. You might say, it's not really the same in every instance, and yes I agree to that. Life is unfair and there are things happening beyond our control that makes the human suffer. What matters most is how you respond to it. You cannot blame others for your happiness or suffering. It's up to you to be happy in whatever situation you are in. And that positive attitude will take you more than what you already have or situation is. Been around helping less fortunate for too long that I can distinguish real happiness amidst the suffering situation they are in.
Genesis 1:26-28: "And GOD SAID, Let us make MAN 'in our image,' after our likeness: and let THEM have 'DOMINION' over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over 'every living thing that creepeth upon the earth."
Well, it looks like we have 'DOMINION' over EVERY LIVING THING on earth! Now what we do or have done with it is the problem.
Consequently, ANYTHING that has gone wrong and/or will continue to go wrong, is because of "man" for GOD gave him "DOMINION!"
God is not to blame for human suffering. Suffering appears to be a part of the human condition, and I think that we can look towards God for relief and release from this condition But first we must get passed the tendencies to believe that suffering is in some way a punishment from God. Jesus, who as a man, suffered himself, does not punish nor blame. Jesus forgives and heals. We are loved and we are blessed. And we take it from there. Its a beautiful thing. Have a nice day.
I do not believe God is to blame... only the good comes from God and the bad comes from the people. look at the situation of the suffering and you will note the root cause is either the ego of a person or their greed or something similar. These things do not come from God. Some people argue that God is to blame for children starving to death in third world countries. It is the greed of their leaders who are not providing for their people. When there are conflicts and wars, it is between angry people. God knows and allows it to happen because of the free will given to us, but does not allow more than what we can handle. Humans have not learnt to live in peace with each other yet, we are to blame for the human suffering in the world today.

People who blame God for suffering are therefore claiming He exists!Many atheists do this too which is ironic as they claim He doesn't exist. I call it the " Blame God Paradox ".

Do we blame God for the demise of the native Americans or man's fear and cruelty?History has many accounts of human cruelty toward their own kind. Native American, for example, had their land stolen, and African Americans were forced to be slave laborers. Who's hand was it?

When something goes wrong in your life, whether it is financial, or illness, or troubles in a relationship, or troubles at work with either a co-worker, or your boss, whatever the difficulty you might have to face, Why Blame God for it? If you look at "JOB" in the Bible, it is not God who...
