    I am mad at God and mad at the most wicked people of this world who want to enforce hell and destruction on the rest of us as a society, especially the big guys up at the top of the power ranks. They also get a free pass when wanting control over others and those who believe in faith don't because they are the only ones instructed to be disciplined. The wicked have all the resources they can have to use against us. I frequently have difficulty articulating this frustrating using words.

    I'm only speaking up and calling things what they are. Everyone is afraid to fall out of accepting God and are afraid to speak out about injustice.

    You have identified yourself as a Deist. A Deist is a person who believes that God exists but He has no part in the development of mankind. He is an uninvolved observer while mankind continues on its own path and in its own way.

    If you are asking the question, "Why doesn't God do something about the wickedness in the world?" as if you are expecting that He should, then you would be denying your own religious position of being a Deist. If evidence emerges that God does intervene in the affairs of mankind, then you would have to abandon your Deist view, because you cannot remain one and accept the evidence of God's involvement with mankind.

    What he doesn't realise that he has exposed himself to a whole lot of committed Christians whose God hears and answers their prayers! When the Holy Spirit gets on his case, there is no escaping Him! :)

    But only for a very short time.

    We speak out about injustice...I'd dare say most everyone here does. As far as not accepting God, of course I'm afraid, you were the one talking about Hell, why wouldn't I be afraid?

    The trouble is God is not listened to down here that is why the wicked can do the things they do. The truth has been replaced by lies how can we hear or see God when we don't adhere to His truth?

    So yes i understand how it feels to be mad at God but God is innocent of any wrong doing, its people who do the wrong doing. Its people who don't love or heed God's voice.

    God suffers the biggest injustice of them all - His creatures reject Him as their Creator and kill others and destroy His Creation and then get Him blamed for it.

    But Jesus shows us that God is innocent of any crime instead of being angry at Him we best love Him for giving us Jesus Christ.

    I wish I can still carve out my own piece of society that didn't get encroached by the such dark things that reached most other areas of the world.

    I just want to be heard at least.

    God's word says,

    "nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3)

    So, God agrees that leaders need to lead by example.

    And to me Hebrews 13:17 means how we need to obey whoever is trusted by God to lead us by example. So, in case anyone is what you call "faithful", but the person is submitting to an evil leader, this is wrong.

    The Lord of Heaven and Earth is different from the "god of this world". For the time being, God has given all men the choice of who to follow.... Jesus Christ or Satan. Life and Death. He is patiently giving men time to repent. But the Day is coming when He will judge the world. All Judgement in heaven have been given by God to Jesus Christ (John 5:22) and in God's time, His Justice will roll (Amos 5:24).

    It's funny how we only have two choices, there isn't a middle option. And the "freedom" is only designed to be temporary. It sounds like something else than "free will". My question is why does believing in that make you so happy?

    Whoever sins is a slave to sin, and the wages of sin is Death. Freedom is a spirit.... God. When you're in God, you can do whatever you want without any negative consequences, because everything you want is Godly. And there is no corruption in God. No defilement. Everything is clean. Holy. And because of this, it's Eternal. To be in God.... for God's Spirit to be in you.... is real Freedom. Everything else is bondage to sin, decay, corruption and death. I am happy because because the Spirit of God is saving me from the sin in my flesh and saving me from this body of sin and death. I'm happy because I foresee the New heavens and earth that He said is coming, and because of the Perfect and Eternal Body He promised to give me in Paradise. I am happy because soon I will see Jesus Christ, who is my first love and I'll see the face of God my Father, face to face. I have this as a living Hope inside me, ever since I received the Holy Spirit and was Born of God at the age of 10.

    There are pros and cons in everything. Not only that, it all depends on how you react to things. For example I am an atheist, so in your view I should/could be "free", I could do whatever I want without fear and I could use evil weapons that you could not use, so in theory I'd be at an advantage, at least here on Earth.
    The reality is that being an atheist, at least for me, means that every single action I do, tires me 3 times as much as it does to you, because everything to me is futile, a waste. Life seems like an ugly ring in which I have been thrown into, without my will, and I am forced to fight against others, against myself, against life itself, all for nothing, to die and disappear. It is paralyzing at times.
    So you have your pros, I wish I could believe.

    That really is a shame you feel that way. For me being an Atheist means completely the opposite. I feel incredibly lucky to even be alive. To be the product of an ancient line of successful ancestry is mind blowing. As life is finite, why not make the absolute best of it? I place the value of existence on now, rather than in the hope of an eternal afterlife (which sounds awful to me to be honest, anything for eternity would become tiresome...for ever)! There's so much wonder in nature, literature, science and relationships. Why is that not enough?

    Google "agorism." You would not be the first person to wish for an enclave of relative peace and freedom. But I'd also recommend being brutally honest with yourself in terms of what price you would be willing to pay for it. Distance from family, friends and loved ones? Difficulty earning a living? Possibility of legal repercussions? Having to learn another language and culture? I don't think it gets a lot better than this, for most of us, without some sacrifices. But many have found those sacrifices well worth making, so they can live lives focused on serving God and others rather than conforming to the will of an increasingly Godless society.
