Now, I even read here: My Dad is a cold father. Still, I rather be on his good side than to him kick me out of the house… Likewise, I’d rather be with a cold God than to be tortured forever??
This very remark is beyond any Christian sense, for God created us out of the Love He Himself is.
A inexistent „Cold God“ would be torture itself anyhow. Hell.
And let’s remember, that God never sends anyone into torture, for the absence of God if one has seen Him -Jesus Christ in judgement, is torture itself even then, when Hell would be the greatest place on earth. Just imagine the greatest place you ever knew, but there are homesick, depressed, bummed out ugly demons onlyEvan the condemned look as so their sin looks - ugly. All suffering of not being in beatific view of God. No prayer possible, no physical torture - souls anyhow got no body to be tortured, but this godlessness forever, eternal! This would be the greatest torture thinkable. A fiery lake indeed; even without fire as we know it. Though we do know how much homesickness burns. It kills more than any fire, it is an eternal dying away!
God never burdens upon us more than we can carry. Christ Himself said in Mt 11,30: „My yoke is easy“ and it really is, for if we live in God, joy prevails by far, for we can speak to God any time!
Greatest answer here I found:
"One does not have to understand everything that ever happens to us. That’s a fallacy. One has to react with grace, love, forgiveness, and tenderness, just as Christ did.“
But here I read also: God left His creature waiting for evil to happen.
A definite **NO **on this! God never „waited“ for the Angels around Lucifer to rebel against Him. All Angels could haben stayed true to God. There was no reason at all to rebel and wanting to be like God, who was before all time. Ever more so, since all Angels where in beatific view of God.
Lucifer, who became Satan because he successfully persuaded his legions to uproar against God, told out of jealousy first created people same as he told the Angels: „You can be like God“ Genesis 3,5. He couldn’t stand, that first humans with free will lived in a paradise, whilst he is in netherworld or hell. And yes, he reached to make them disobedient and trespass the one and only command - „Don’t eat of this fruit in the middle of the Eden".
Yes, God does allow Satan to sift us like wheat, so nothing unclean ever enters heaven.
Yes, „it would be great if God just gave us absolute heaven and sanctity from day 1.“
BUT GOD DID! The world God created is absolute heaven and sanctity, but it’s sin, that turned the earth into a place of fear, worry, distrust and therefor insecurity. All and double as many people as live today, could live high on, but it’s sin, greediness, war, missing love that excludes this. It’s we humans who exclude this.
Now, it’s beyond me, that in CAF is also posted:
"God creates the cause of sin“ and another „God has also predicted that He will kill Satan and all other evil humans.“
Both is not biblical, not in the Gospel.
As to evil which destroys the world and kills so many:
To make the choice for holy or evil, is very easy to meet. Evil eats the soul. Holiness is constructive and helps every person who then is at any moment able to speak to God. God does care for our suffering on earth. Christ said in Mt 11,28: Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
