Does God really responsible for the problems of mankind? whether God really exists? If God is really responsible, then what is his interest in doing it, if He knew that human beings are capable, then why does He tempt human fad, or are we only concerned about God for our own problems and mistakes? and if indeed God exists, when you ever meet him? or is he hiding for fear of being visible? or whether we are actually creating God Himself so that we can take refuge from the real thing we can not finish?

God was there, my friend. If He does not exist, then we would not exist. It is difficult to explain the greatness of God with the ability of human reason is limited. After creation, God does not sit on my hands. He still care for us. He set the track paths of the moon, stars and planets. He set the water cycle from upstream to downstream rivers, the sea and then evaporates into the sky and be condensed into clouds and rain. He arranged for the rain that soaked the ground and give life to the seed for our future can be harvested for eating. God never promised us life would always be happy, the sun is always bright, birds singing accompanied with fragrant flowers blossomed. God promised to hold our hands when we have to go through narrow streets, dark, slippery and storms.

There's something interesting from your expression, and we think it necessary to further, God can not be considered by the limited human mind, okay we all understand that human reason can not reach the essence of God, and whether the limitations of human reason, we can correctly selecting the true God, as we know in this world too many people who offer faith in the Lord with a variety of essences.

What is God? God is nothing but the super natural power exists in this universe. We are all related with power. We ourselves have small small power cell. God is not responsible for doing all these, but its a series of reactions occuring in this universe where incidents keep on working one after another. As I said we all are a small power cell, so if we put some efforts in between, there occurs some changes of action. Otherwise even if we don't do anything things are going to happen serially. Because of this super natural power Wind is blowing, water is flowing, Earthquakes comes, etc...etc.. all happens.

I believe that mankind makes the problems he has for himself. it is easy to blame God for our current situations in life. We can't hold God responsible for the things we have done.

Man is responsible for his own problems. God gave man free will and that has led to his(man's) downfall. God does not tempt man, evil (Satan) does that. We have God's word that he does and will not tempt man. Since you are questioning even the existence of God, may I suggest that you find and read a Bible?

In the Bible in the book of James, chapter 1, verse 13--- Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. verse 14--- But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. In 1st Corinthians chapter 7, verse 5, we see that it is Satan that does the tempting.

God as the parent. He gives the rules, disiplines when necessary, and sends his children off into the world, stepping in occasionally to give advice, clean up a mess or read the riot act to the wayward. It is a society that expects things to be done for them rather than be held accountable for their mistakes, rebellions etc. that expect God to take care of them as well. AND God made it very clear in scripture that only those who OBEYED his rules and lived a righteous life had a right to expect His blessings. YET, he still sends the rain on those who do not because He is merciful. I think HE's done all that can be done for the human race without taking away our free will and forcing us all to behave.

Nope. It's not God's fault if we keep on doing things the wrong way. Sometimes things happen for a reason for us to realize things and be able to grow as a person. We are here to live and help one another, not just to live and be happy in making other people suffer just to get what we want. There are people who do not realize they are making other people's lives miserable just because they are selfish. This created problems. We can't change people, we can only change ourselves. That is why each of us must learn our own lessons and share them with each other so we can all grow together and hopefully have a better future.

If we created God, then we should be able to solve the problems of the world. Our intelligence is getting there. The problem is, we won't be solving these problems. The problems in Egypt is making it worse for Israel. Egypt just recently allowed two Iranian warships go pass through the Suez Canal. So even though Democracy might come to Egypt, that doesn't mean things will get better in the Middle East or for Israel. Many of us Christians will tell you that if you turn to God, then you won't have to worry about the problems of mankind. But whatever you do, God is not going to be left out of anything.

The issue of existence of God is answered differently depending on who is answering. The religion of God insists there and coupled with an explanation (plus the verse is sometimes a warning that you will burn in hell that the fire was human-fueled infidel) The skeptics, agnostics, unbeliefer, anti-Theis, Deist replied another. Some experts alleged that people tend to believe because they feel without believing he could not be quiet. Or religious people because of inheritance (father grandfather great-grand father of all religion and no religion then if he lives to bother) About the skeptics as an option read Dawkins (God Delusions) which explores this question he said: when one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_delusio…

Be patient my friend, God is responsible for all beings! and indeed there is provision to be made by the man himself, such as fate, God will not change the fate of a nation unless the people themselves are changing it. Comrade See Heaven, Earth, planets, whether there are beings who can create it all other than God?! Did not test it to make people stronger in life! Do not blame God, it's a sin man. god we will meet later in the hereafter. He did not hide, indeed the nature of God as we feel now. Do not be stupid friend is not God who created us and not we who created God. What is worthy of God is a stone or a lump of flour? NO!

Personally I believe that God does exist and he came to Earth as in flesh to help lead and guide all men in the path of righteousness so that they can know right from wrong while having a Freedom of choice. We cannot see him, yet when we pray to him we can feel him and know that he is there. He is an omnipresent being surrounding the world with his Love and hope for peace and understanding. Anytime I go to him in Prayer asking and believing in things I know he is there. It is up to continue to Trust and believe in him until the day he calls us home.

God doesnt give us problems or trials that we cannot handle and I believe that. Sometimes these are just testings of our faith. But sometimes, humans are responsible w/ their problems too, the Lord has given us our own freewill to choose what we want. And if we do not respond to what we think is right, we face trials in return. So it doesnt really boils down to God alone. We have a part to play too. But we can be assured that God is always there to help us, only if we acknowledge that we need Him and his divine intervention.

gengeni let us see this way. If a car manufacturer has built a car and launched a car, then he would responsible for any defects that crop up in the car. God too is a creator. If man is sinful, then is it God responsible for it. Let me analyze the example of car manufacturer. He is responsible for only manufacturing defects, but he is not responsible for the defects, which crop up due to neglect or lack of maintenance. Man is sinful because God created his out of dust of this earth. He made him of flesh and bones and sin was in his bones. God commanded him not to live by his instincts as animals. Instincts are the knowledge of those who brought them forth in this world. Therefore, God forbade Adam and Eve and asked them not to eat the fruit of knowledge. God expected man to live by his conscious motives because he gave humans a conscience. Man disobeyed God and therefore God banished him from Garden of Eden. If man disobey God, then God is not responsible for the problems that man might face. All the problems humans face today are due to man's disobedience to God.
