    I’m curious about your use of “G-d,” as I have only seen this in Jewish contexts. Wait, was Lauren Markoe editing this…

    It would be unnatural to never be angry with God. We are human, and we are ignorant of why God allows evil to exist. Just like children who are too immature to understand a parent’s reasoning, they get angry at any imagined slight against them.
    But, just like we can’t pretend our parents don’t exist, we cannot pretend that God does not exist. One must grow in knowledge of who God is in order to deal correctly with any anger towards Him. God wants us to share our anger with Him, for He is not vengeful or eager to punish you for yelling at Him.
    Anger can be a prayer, of sorts, a cry for help and understanding. God knows we hurt, and He is not deaf to our cries.

  • @James Carr,

    “we cannot pretend that God does not exist.”

    Why not? There is no evidence for god.
    And why must you pretend that he does exist? How does your pretending help anyone?

  • James Carr

    Who’s pretending? God is real. Still looking for hard evidence that negates the Four Gospels in which proof of God is detailed explicitly. Looking for those 1st Century accounts that dismiss what the Gospels recorded.

    God is perfect in love, justice and wisdom. It’s we humans who inherited sin, imperfection and death through Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God.

    God’s love for us is so intense that he gave his perfect son, Jesus, as a ransom sacrifice for mankind so that sin, imperfection and death will be done away with (Revelation 21:3,4).

    God allows suffering because his right of sovereignty over mankind was disputed by Satan; however, that issue will soon be resolved when God’s kingdom puts an end to man’s corrupt systems and wicked ones and rules with peace, righteousness and love (Isaiah 11:1-9).

    In the new and cleansed earth that we have to look forward to living forever on, we can enjoy a most close and loving relationship with God as his children on earth.
