Lets say, HYPOTHETICALLY (i am very tired of you guys going OMG HE SAID JESUS AS A FEAR TACTIC, CLEARLY HE FEARS JESUS), that God does exist, he would be a far far worst creature than the Devil ever could be, hey hes the o...ne who allows the devil to exist. The Greek philosopher Epicurus put it best "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" logically you have to accept one of these out comes otherwise your just being illogical
Stephen, Epicurus knows nothing about the nature of God. Why does God allow there to be evil in the world? Why doesn't He just force all of us to be good and righteous to each other? Why doesn't He just give us all a happy, plentiful, joyous life with no sorrow or grief? If God exists, aren't we all entitled to a life of bounty? Hmm, I wonder why God is NOT a Socialist? The same God who gives us life and the air we breathe blesses us with enough to make the world a wonderful place. Why do we have to struggle? Because we grow and develop and show Him and ourselves what we are capable of doing. As we follow true principles we prosper and we raise the quality of humankind, as we sin we fail. Our life does not end at death...that's when the real life begins. Yes Stephen, there is a war between good and evil. You’re on the wrong side brother.
