Is God is too nice or loving to judge or do something harsh?
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:42:31 PM »
I ran across this post on another board and thought I would like to see the thoughts from you guys (get this question all the time, "If God is so loving why doesn't He stop all the pain and starvation in the world?")

Quote from: MercyandFaith
I often hear this theology promoted by some people that "God is too nice or loving to do such a judging or harsh thing" (in reference to some form of judgement or harsh thing happening).


My question is:
Considering that God once ordered the Israelites to commit genocide of the Amalekites, and stated in Scripture that people will go to hell (or the lake of fire) should they die unsaved, and once ordered the Israelites to stone their rebellious sons to death.............How exactly can you say, "God is too nice or loving to judge or do something harsh?" If He's already shown Himself capable of ordering genocide, ordering parents to stone rebellious sons to death, etc., why COULDN'T He do something harsh or judgmental?

Yah yes- if there is a god why does he let there be so much pain and death in the world?

I would respond with- if god is righteous why is not all of humanity under condemnation for their sins? I’ll give you a hint, they are. This is the whole reason we need the work Christ did on the cross.

What does God fearing mean?

Deut 8:6 So keep the commands of the Lord your God by walking in His ways and fearing Him.

Jn 9:31 We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He listens to him.

Acts 10:22 They said, “Cornelius, a centurion, an upright and God-fearing man, who has a good reputation with the whole Jewish nation, was divinely directed by a holy angel to call you to his house and to hear a message from you.”
