There has been so much said that I don't even know where to begin. I will attempt to answer the question of why God allows suffering.
Firstly you should note that the Bible does not say that God is the ruler of this world. "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." -- 1 John 5:19.
So why would God allow this?
How would a loving parent feel if he was publicly accused of lying to his children, abusing his authority over them, and withholding good things from them? Would he disprove those slanderous accusations by physically assaulting his accuser? No. In fact, by reacting in such a manner, he might give credibility to the accusations. This is why God did not immediately destroy Satan.
Wow good to see that your god is as human as us. It can be just as petty, just as whiny as a human being. Makes sense since it was created by them. Oh and I know why your god really didn’t destroy Satan; they’re co-workers. We see your god allowing the murder of innocents by this “satan” in his bet about Job. What’s a few mortals between friends? Then, in Luke, God depends on Satan to have his plan come off, by satan making Judas betray JC. That makes no sense if this was a beign that knows it would be defeated if this JC was made a blood sacrifice. Then we have God needing to release Satan from the pit to have one more go at the humans who did indeed stay true to this god, per Revelation. I do love how some Christians run to the claim that the world is under the power of the “wicked one” but then we have some other Christians sure that this god does miracles whenever he wants, has control over ever single event in his “plan”. Pity Christians can’t agree.
Nice re-write of the eden story though. Your god either intentionally allowed or was impotent in keeping the “snake” out (and in the context of the bible, it was really just a talking snake, not your evil one). And hiliarous on how afraid your god was when humans became able to judge good and evil just like him, supposedly. And from your casting your god as a vengeful father who would kill his children, golly, Satan was pretty right if he did indeed cast god as an unfit father.
I always enjoy when Chritians claim their god is just. Nope, not even by the strict definition. This god of yours condemns others for crimes that they did not commit. Let me ask you, would you want to be put in prison for a crime I did? Now how is that just? Same with your primitive god.
Incidentally, all of your claims about your god and its actions, are moot until you can show evience that any of them happened. There is no evidence for the bible creation, flood, tower of babel, exodus, any fantastic kingdoms of the Israelites, miracles or the magical birth or death of your supposed savior.
this next bit is pricesless:
The Bible does show that he is omniscient in the sense that nothing can be hidden from him. However the Bible does show that he is selective.
Damn then I hope your god is watching when you need him, jst. Ooops God’s attention was on something else. So that busload of orphans goes over the cliff. The depowering of their god, great to see this tactic being used. Your god is “kinda omniscient” , rather like something being “kinda” sterile.
Omnipotence is also a fail for your god. Those iron chariots, bummer. Being able to not kill someone who touches your magic box just to keep it upright, just can’t manage to do it. Figuring out that the world isn’t flat, fail. Funny how your god doesn’t respect free will at all. I’ve read the bible, jst. I know you are simply wrong and I can quote chapter and verse. Your god forced its will on the pharaoh to show off (Exodus 4, 14, 17) and forced the Egyptians to give up their wealth to the Israelites (Exodus 12). That’s mind control not free will. This god acted against the enemies of the Israelites with miracles, if it were interested in free will, it would have done nothing. In your New Testament, your supposed savior claims to have used parables to intentionally prevent people from accepting him; again not free will at all since on one had a choice against a magical and supposedly all-powerful being. Same in Romans 9, where your god says that it makes some people to be damned, no choice of their own.
