Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

Patrick H

Christians say good don't really suffer unjustly while the wicked have a wonderful life

 

People worry about exceptionally good people dying unrewarded and many monstrous people dying unpunished. The Christian response is that nobody is truly that good so the argument does not count. So the doctrine of God is clearly but implicitly judgemental and passive aggressive.

 

Psalm 103

 

He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.

 

He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

 

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His loving kindness toward those who fear Him

 

The Penny Catechism, Catechism of Christian Doctrine,

 

367. When God sends you any cross, or sickness, or pain, what should you say?


When God sends me any cross, or sickness, or pain, I should say, "Lord, Thy will be done; I take this for my sins."
