Divine Interjections: 09

People are very curious of one another's beliefs. A lot of the times, people just wanna know why. Why, oh why, oh why?

Once, a buddy posed an all-time favourite. "If God exists, why is there suffering in the world?" So I answered in the only way I know how. "I dunno. Maybe He hates you." Hahahahhahahah!!!!

Who can resist? Hahahhaha!!!

I guess that's what you get when you ask me these BIG question. Fact is, I really don't know. And I'm not about to pretend that I do. Even if I did attempt to give you a serious answer, would you truly be satisfied?

I know I wasn't. Even now, as a Christian, I don't think I can answer that - at least not to anyone's satisfaction.

So, what can I tell you about God? I can tell you of the peace that fills my heart. I can tell you of the joy that fills my soul. And I can tell you of the completeness that fills my life. But no, I can't tell you why there is suffering in the world. Not to your satisfaction.

And no, God probably doesn't hate you. I was kidding.


  1. muahaha..that's a good one.."god hates you" :D
    i guess one must just believe in him..

  2. Yeah glinar, I can be a pain sometimes making fun of it all. But it helps ease people into an otherwise uncomfortable subject. :) The thing about God is, you can never actually explain Him. Each person will have to make his own encounter... wwoOooOoOoo~ :)

  3. It's great that we all experience God in different ways!

  4. Yeah. And He still hates me. Always lost my way whenever I go to James' church.

  5. Different strokes for different folks, eh rachel? :)
    That must be it, Gina!! :lol:

  6. no lah, god doesn't hate any of us.
    he loves me... you too!
