    The Bible tells us that God isn’t willing that anybody should perish (2 Peter 3:9), but his holy word has been corrupted through the ages by mankind, so doesn’t that mean that God either allowed it to be corrupted, or he was unable to keep it from being corrupted?

    A lot of people try to use this type of question to put God in a negative, contradictive light. What is not understood though, is that the Bible was directed for the understanding of a specific people; God's children. This spiritual " advice" that God gives through his word, are for those who are trying to make their way back to heaven. God does not want any of his children to perish, which is why the verse goes on to talk about God's patience before bringing destruction to the earth, in which those whom do not make it, will perish. God takes no pleasure in destroying people, but like learning the knowledge of good and evil, destruction is necessary for the refinement of God's children.

    What if a parent tells their child not to do something; the child does it anyway, but faces no repercussions for the bad behavior? Or how about if a mass murderer goes around killing many people, yet there is no law to punish him? Spiritually, destruction is like the " spanking," or the " life - sentence," that sets a boundary for order and structure.
    Romans 9:22

    " What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath - prepared for destruction?
    What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory."

    God created some people for destruction; this was done to show God's power, mercy, and love, for those he created to be God's children. But how can a child understand a parent's love, unless they experience a time in which it has gone away? This world HATES God, and the Devil is the god of this world. Only when you see your parent's authority, do you understand it; only when you are refused their love, do you really desire it.

    God was not cruel for creating the reality of evil, wickedness, and the wicked whom face destruction in the near future; this was all done for the benefit of those who will get to live, who will gain knowledge and understanding. Some find it cruel that there are a good amount of people who will perish - but the truth of everyone's spirit will be and currently is being exposed. Do not test God by thinking, " Well I'm a child of God so I'll be saved no matter what," or " Well I was made to burn in hell, so there's no hope."

    Actually, we have no idea who is who until the time comes when you'll be faced with judgement; and I'm not talking about Judgement day. Just think though;

    God has done nothing wrong nor cruel, except be beaten, spat on, and brutally hung on the cross to suffer for our sins; God has done nothing wrong except breathe life into us so we even have the chance to live.
    God has done nothing wrong except allow us to become knowledgeable and insightful - knowing in a way similar to God as a child learns from it's parents.
    God has done nothing wrong but allowed us to inherit heaven and eternal life.
    God has done nothing wrong as God -

    Yet there are millions of people who hate God for no clear reason - they don't believe in God's authority, so many false prophets of the churches go against teachings in the Bible - enforcing their own faux " Christian but not Christian at all," celebrations like Christmas and Easter, which have no relevance to God, except what the faux Christians have buttered it up with.

    But aren't Christians suppose to be the Children of God?

    Not necessarily. This is why God will expose who is really who, because anyone can proclaim they are a child of God, and not be one at all.

    The Devil is in the churches. Just a heads up.:thumbs:
