> Basically, all I was saying was that since God created the world, and since the world is so darn screwed up (with people killing one another, abusing children, stealing from others, betraying other people, etc) we can think one of two things about the Creator:
> 1- he did not mean for this to happen - it was a mistake he made.
> 2- he knew the world would be this way from the moment he created it. and he did it anyway. knowing he was creating something that would put us, his "children" through so much pain. (which people often excuse by saying "god has a plan")
>
> Trust me - I wrote this for answers. Anything you say is interesting to me - I am desperate, to some extent, for someone to come along and tell me something that will bring back all of the faith in God that I once had. I WANT to trust God. I am just so confused right now.

> I want to understand why bad things happen in this world, and why so many bad things have happened to my family. I want to know why God hasnt protected me from the world, since I am supposed to be his "child"/

cj,
You wrote,[...anything you say is interesting to me..someone to tell me..I want to understand..want to know why..I am..(H)is child...]
In our previous dialog, where I got lost is around where you introduced a bible verse that, I guess, you thought that I knew of. Since I do not know of the verse that you mean, I thought that this discussion was for those that knew of the verse that you mean and that the disscussion could not include me.
I guess if we put that out of our discussion for now, I could rejoin this discussion with the infomation in your post above, for there is interest by me in your concerns about the bible God.
Your concern as to that you want to understand why God hasn't protected you {from the world} could be a starting point in this discussion.
Here in Cincinnati, there was an ice storm. The ice fell on the just and the unjust. But there is much more than that that I see in your concerns. Is one of your concerns that if there is tribulation in the world, how can one be of good-cheer?
Lou
