Insights into God
and understanding our Free Will

The first three minutes of this video
Yet the whole video
is well worth the time to watch.
The thoughts below are
from a letter to the editor
in a newspaper in Georgia
many years ago.
I cut the letter out and kept it,
I thought it made some important points.
I hope you consider this a worthwhile
especially if -
if you struggle with the concept
of a loving God allowing evil
you know someone
who is struggling
with his or her concept of a loving God.
The Title of the Article is
Fiend or Friend
Editor: I get it. Either God prevents all atrocity or he is a fiend.
But since he doesn’t cause these cruelties, he’s at least a benign fiend, right?
His actual fiendishness, then, is that he gave us free will, so that we are capable of bad acts.
And the flip side is that we’re also capable of good acts.
So he lets us grow if we choose, but fiendishly fails to provide constant intervention to make everything perfect, which would relegate us to the status of robot angels. Which, to some, would seem really fiendish.
I guess one man’s fiend is another man’s friend.
