Theologians claim God has rarely spoken.
He’s given man free will, a Godly token.
Still, makes no sense that he should watch men suffer
As they seek to annihilate each other.

Christians, Muslems, Jews claim God as Father;
Yet so oft do they rail brother against brother.
Common human sense sees this upheaval!
Why would God place good on par with evil?

Wonderfully expressed, this apparent contradiction. I remember Jesus Christ once forewarning us that men would kill each other and claim they were doing God a service. That because of that-many would look down on God. God calls unjustified killing murder- and yet He calls the killing of murderers justified. Once more- He explains it clearly in His recorded Word.
~Z.B.McClure You've captured briefly, the confusion of many.

Your post gives valid thoughts
I beleive there is so much evidence
across the entire globe
that no-one(s) belief choices
& rituals of worship
can be exactly true
and all of them too also
have exact elements of truth(s)

You share a universal and timeless question within these verses, Regis. Love and peace,
