God is watching over His people. Sometimes God allows people to go on living because He wants to save them. You need to understand God's main interest in this world are His very own people. He knows the works of the wicked man. But His beautiful eyes are always on His people. If a man or woman of God is taken out, it seems early in life, it's because God can see what lies ahead. It is always God's decision.

Glad you asked this. I attend a singles prayer meeting every week and this one guy who comes is always asking "why does God let bad things happen" He listens to the news and then blames God for everything.
We have told him God is not to blame humans are because we have free will. People make thier own choices to do wrong and not follow God's laws and then bad things happen.

Personally, truthfully, and carefully.
A little patience helps too.
Most of all don't feel that you have to defend God, if this person's mind is made up, there probably isn't much you can say to change it.
Clear your mind, check your emotions, focus on Jesus and the Holy Spirit should take over. After all God knows better what to say in his defense than you or I.
Meeting someone emotionally is half the battle, at least they can see that you care for them.

Shari ... are you sure about that ... My observation of others and myself is that in good times it is easy to forget that it is God who has given us these good things, and in the hard times that we remember to pray to Him for help.

The Bible said they would, and that we are to know by these what time it is. Matthew has much to say about these things. How can anyone be angry with God who was so wonderful to tell us that they are going to happen. Prior warning is better than no warning at all. Even at Noah's time, he preached for 125 years, before the flood.

My answer is that it is easy to love God in the good times and the hard and bad times seperate those who truly love him from those who don't. Wheat from chaff. Believer from non-believer. It's not wise to charge God foolishly.

The problem is not God. The problem is that people do not want God, that is why they are in all the trouble they are in. God does not force Himself on anyone, He waits for people to turn to Him then He willingly takes them in.

It is written every good and perfect gift is from God..and Satan goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour. This world is evil with evil people. Adam gave the deed to the earth to Satan when he sinned. Satan is doing all he can to destroy everyone he can in the few remaining days he has left before Jesus calls for his church to come home. Be mad at Satan - not God

did he send money to help those people or their family members? all that anyone can do is share the love that God has given us and pray for others.. and leave the rest in God's hands. He is righteous and just.

Maybe it is that persons fault because he didn't go out and witness to the Terrorist and lead him to Christ so he wouldn't do such things.
Don't sit around and curse the darkness. Turn on a light.

Bad people do bad things, good people do good things. Look at and study the lesson in the book of Job. While everyone was telling him to blame God, he however would not. Like Job, our own faith is challenged daily by Satan. Like Job, if you are faithful, you will be rewarded. Satan knows he has lost the war against God, now he is trying to take as many people from God as he can. Don't be one of those people.

2. Also the environment is changing because humans have polluted the earth so badely. Then we wonder why there are so many disasters.
The end times are near as it was fortold in Bible about floods and wars etc.
