I'm pretty pissed too actually. God seems like he really has it in for me; but not just me, lots of people.

Like I said I don't know why we have to go through this, just like I don't know why Stalin and Mao Zedong and Pol Pot were allowed to exterminate tens of millions of good, innocent people. The problem of evil is the greatest unsolved riddle in Christianity.

This might not help you much but just know that there are people (me for one) that go through the same thing you go through every day. There are also billions of people all over the world who have it much worse. Right now there are people who live in a tent city in the desert and just getting a glass of water to drink can be a fatal adventure. 2 billion people live on less than $2 a day. If you live in Zimbabwe you get to see your president accumulate billions of dollars of wealth while you daughter dies from starvation and cholera. I could go on but I don't have to.

Pain, suffering, oppression, bondage, poverty, cruelty...Our enemies laugh at us and mock us while they sing and carouse in their palaces. Our presidents and prime ministers make rousing speeches at the UN and get standing ovations, while their secret police tortures and kills my brother who dares to demand a shred of decency from our leaders. This is how the world is. Maybe some people are strong enough to deal with life without God. But I'm not strong like that. Maybe God is a fantasy, a delusion, an emotional crutch for weak-minded people. Well if it is so what? If it makes you feel better then what's the harm? I believe there's a reason that you and I and everybody else suffer. So what if it's true or not? Billions of people drink and smoke and ingest all types of substances to escape reality. So why is praying or believing any different?

Like I said, if something makes you feel better then why not do it? If you've tried everything else then why not try this? There's no contract to sign, and a lifetime money-back guarantee. If you don't like what you get send it back and we'll refund the full purchase price plus S+H.
