...the why God doesn't heal them is that they are being punished for their deeds in their past life. It could be that.
...or maybe because he doesn't exist.
Oh before going ahead, I am a Hindu-Agnostic-Theist and have been an atheist till recently until I felt HE must exist because of some things which i came across... So, now you know what sort of a guy I am religiously speaking, from that...
hmm... we don't get many of those here. In fact, I don't remember a single one. That's kinda cool ... though your beliefs no less false that any other religion.
Please tell me exactly whhat things you came accross that made you a theist... is there any evidence in those things?
So yes, I feel that there might be more than one life for every living entity, and no i do not want to define life.
If you commit a bad deed, or a crime you have to pay for it. The idea of punishment is not clear to me and i cannot define it, but a fair god will punish on the same plate as your crime.... Sometimes, it might be your chance to penance and if you hurt somebody seriously in this life, you might be in a life that has to serve the other in the next life...
So you believe in a sense of "justice" ... I can see the appeal... what I can't see is the evidence for such a claim.
I do not submit to the idea that if you confess all your crimes, then you will get free of the sins.. That is quite something from a GOD if it does happen, right..? You kill a thousand people or do any crime however small or big, and in the end just confess to your bishop or pastor or whatever and you get to go to heaven if you praise the God..? That i quite too convenient.
I'm definitely all for people being accountable for their actions... but that's why we have laws and enforce them including punishment for murder. If someone kills a member of my family, I'm not going to lay back and wait for a god to make justice happen in some other life. I expect this person to be punished by spending the rest of this
life in jail. Unfortunately, there is a huge lack of justice in this world... but only we can change that if we all work together as a species.
Sitting around waiting for god to sort everything out in this life or the next is nothing but wishful thinking and it may actually prevent people from taking action to ensure justice is served where it is due.
I do not think so because i do not subscribe to BULLS(hit) Magazine, i subscribe to The Entrepreneur and The Economist..
Ok... totally irrelevant comment...
Now, i do not think a real God would want to praise him and worship him so as to get us to heaven... I believe in a just and fair God. I believe that if God does exist, then he will be an ever encompassing energy that is the universe and everything. Yes, that is if he does exist....
You are making baseless claims with no evidence. You're just saying what you think a hypothetical god's properties and intentions would be.
The question WHY GOD WONT CURE AMPUTEES is not relevant if you consider it in Hinduist faith, but is in Christian faith. So, from that perspective i submit that my post here might have some merit to the reader. Thank you.
So you're saying that when a child is born in africa, suffers misery and pain all its life and dies of disease and malnutrition at the age of 4 ... they actually deserve this???
You think this child is serving out punishment from a past life? You think a loving god should submit anyone to such inhumane and immoral conditions as punishment?
... and here's the million dollar question... should we help these starving children? Or should we just leave them to suffer in the belief that they actually
deserve it somehow?
Think about the moral implications of what you're saying.
...and which comes first? The bad deed and then the punishment? or are there cases where people suffer unjustly and then get a reward in a later life?
I ask because I can think of the opposite scenario where the sufferer does not deserve it. For example... a child is raped by an adult. Assuming no justice is done by law enforcement... does this mean that the rapist will be punished in the next life? Will he be molested as a child to balance things out?
... and the original molested child who didn't deserve it... does he then get rewarded in the next life? How the hell does that make the fact that he got raped any better?
That sucks and I would definitely not
think that is a good and just god.
It seems to me that your are decribing an endless cycle of inflicting suffering and then experience suffering. That's hardly a good system for a deity is it?
