All the time i see on here about people saying how "god is evil because he makes people go through bad things" and that "the fact that bad things happen disprove the concept of god." Well think about this, if god gave every single human being everything they ever wanted in life, would they still be a good person. Look at the children of these millionares and most (not always) of the time you see selfish horrible little brats who dont give a crap about anything but moneyk, how do you think god will judge these people? What if god tests souls with different measurements. The weak and greedy are lured and seduced with rewards of wealth and power from doing bad things, whilst good strong people are giving the toughest challenges to prove their faith no matter what happens? its kind of like an exam, sure you can tell the examiner you know everything about pythagoras, and he may believe you but that doesnt mean you get an A+ without giving solid proof with your answers. in the case of the "bad people," the amount of hard work and stress people go through to make it to the top through government or crime, and theres no chance that you will ever succeed but people are still more than willing to go through all that "sin" and lie just so they get the reward at the end. even after he has made it so hard for us to commit sin, people will still do it. Now joining the church or even joining a monastery are probably the most accesible positions for all of society. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcomed with love and friendship, noone is ever knocked back. There is no requirments of any kind, and it is easy to life a happy life with the church. As far as i know there has been no crimes against humanity commited by "god" recorded in any moment of recorded history. The crusades? just a bunch of warlords trying to gain control of lands rich in gold and other luxuries. The war on terror? well the same thing really, just a different century with different luxuries Hopefully this doesnt turn into a big 7 page long rant about "god is evil because people die" it would be cool if people thought about what ive said. Id just like to point out that i am an agnostic, and none of the things i have said are my honest beliefs. I just wanted to see what everyone thought and in no way mean to offend anyone.
