this is a world full of things that should not be. hate, betrayal, pain, suffering, affliction…plain stupidity and lack of love… and the more humanity wants to remove the ‘superfluous’ and ‘false’ god and oppression of organised religion, and stand on its own, the less of the world seems to be right.
plenty of people ask how come god permits the evil and pain and injustice and so on. paradoxically enough, often the askers are the same people who do not think that any god should rule and ‘oppress’ humanity.
so the question about the god’s interference or the absence thereof is not a question about god – it is rather a display of, ultimately, contempt (for the interlocutor) and arrogance (comparison of the asker with a deity who is omnipotent and omnicognizant and infinite). this is a question of the humanity, not of god.
and it is not so that god does nothing to counter pain and oppression, and evil. he does the only thing he can – he goes and dies in the stead of those who have messed up his creation and rejected himself. the immortal become mortal, the infinite finite, he gets his hands not just dirty but literally bloody.
in the messed up world, god dies for those he loves – humanity.
this much he loved the world that he stretched out his hands on the cross to embrace them forever.
