Due to the Strong Subject Matter, I Invite your Comments. What do you think?







If GOD is truly a GOD of Love, why does he allow so many hurtful things to happen in life? This question is usually ask by all Atheists and some Christians too.  

Three Reasons: First GOD bestowed on mankind “Free Will“, or the Power of Choice. Unfortunately, mankind doesn’t always make good decisions and proper choices. Secondly, we are all Sinners. So, when you combine Sin with Free Will things are likely to get Screwed-up. It’s almost guaranteed.

The Third factor is Demonic. The Bible says there are Evil Spirits here on earth. Supernatural spirit forms that have an evil influence on life. Jesus even encountered some when he was here. Christian demonology states that the mission of the demons is to induce humans to sin, often by testing their faith in God.

Christian tradition holds that temptations come from three sources - the world, flesh, and devil. Demons are also believed to try to tempt people into completely abandoning their faith.  Demons have tormented people during their life, as in the case of Job or through possession (Matthew 17:15-16), simply by showing themselves before persons to frighten them, or by provoking visions that induce sinful thinking.

Demons use variants and combinations of these powers to harass, demoralize, confuse, and disorient the victim to be afraid. Often Demons are said to create negative emotions, wreaking havoc, ensuing chaos, and disrupting peace.  

I personally can attest to this because I encountered one that almost ruined my life. If it had not been for my strong Christian faith, no doubt, I would have been a goner. Hopefully our next life, or the afterlife, will be a little more pleasing.

I'm reminded of a picture of Jesus I saw one time with the quotation, "I did not say it would be easy. I said it would be worth it." 

 God Bless and Keep You, 

 Dr. Joe K. Reed
