Inactive God.

"I tell you, no, but unless you repent, 
you will all likewise perish." Luke 13:5

In the beginning of Genesis there is a dramatic narration of creation of the universe. God created everything and assigned roles for each one. He made everything in order, God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31.

After that in selecting Abraham and forming a nation for his name God was very keen to act in favour of his people. Then what happened to God in present day? Why he is not acting against the brutality and the war happening on the earth?

We can find that God is acting in history for a purpose. There are certain rules for the nature created by God. KFsRZXRThe weather, moving of planets etc. So the natural laws cause a man to drown to death, a lion kill a deer etc. God is not intercepting in all these matters. The law of nature prevails. But still, why God is not helping the people in Iraq, Syria, Palestine etc.? There are too many questions we find hard to answer like a death of a child. To find the answer we have to know the reason behind many happenings on earth.

Jacob deceived his brother and stole the birth right. He escaped to another nation and fell in love with a girl. He was asked to work for the father of his love for seven years. On the wedding day his father deceived him in law by consuming the sister of his love. He forced to work another seven years to get his girl. Jacob suffered in a foreign country because he deceived his father and brother.

The story of Sodom and Gomorrah is interesting. Judgment by God was then passed upon Sodom and Gomorrah and two neighbouring cities, which were completely consumed by fire and brimstone. The reason was a crime against nature.

Jonah’s prophesy fulfilled by destruction of Nineveh. The reason is the people continue their evil life.

But in some examples we cant find the reason. There is no reason why eighteen people die when tower in Siloam fell. Luke 13:4. Jesus questions the people around him, whether they were the worst culprits. Jesus words are worth to remember. “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13:5

If you are a believer you have to understand that there are a lot of things we cant find answer with. So there are only two choices: either deny the God and be an atheist or trust in him and swallow these happenings without any question.

But the important matter for a believer in these instances and days, especially, is not that all, but it is repent. Gaza-destruction-1We have to repent not only for the sin for our sin but for the sin of the world. Understand that when we choose a surrogate mother and when we bless a gay marriage we are choosing God’s curse on earth.

In Indian Mythology there is a story of a thief. He leave home everyday and rob people and thus earn living for his family. One day he confronted a monk and the monk asked him to go and ask his wife and children whether they will share the punishment for his robbery. He went back to his home and asked the same to his wife and children, but they refused. That changed his mind and he became a famous monk. Catholic Church teaches the social aspect of sin. Every sin is against God, against the society and against us.

So it is meaningless to debate on God’s inactiveness in Iraq and Syria. We have to think only why God is inactive on our own sins. So repent, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Matthew 4:17. And produce fruit in keeping with repentance. Matthew 3:8 .

  1. …wait, so this is punishment from God for the sins of the world? Why here? Why now? Why not before, for the millions of babies killed? For the tens of millions of slaves taken and killed? For the hundreds of millions killed in wars? Where was the punishment on the horrible genocidal leaders from history who died asleep in their beds? Now God is punishing Iraqi Christians because too many in the West are allowing gay “marriage”??? What kind of sense does that make???

    Repentance is always in order. But linking one “punishment” to our particular political or theological axe to grind is silly. When God wants to link them, He sends a prophet with His Word to tell us. Seeing none, I dismiss this out of hand.


  2. It is very strange to use one verse from the bible and forget the other verses or using the bible for polotical or theological point of view. The is no conection with God’e anger and Iraqi or syrian persucuation. God is faithful to his believers ,,, we see he delivered Noah who belives in him will dismissing the others who make evil doings. We see he forlongs Ezakias life because he believed in him and repented at the same time. We see the Lord raises his stick to the traders in his temple but bitting noen ,,, instead he sacrifieses himself for the sinners may his name be blessed. He warnes people to
    Repent through natural catastrofy in haiti or sunami but killing noen(of course those who didnt take care of themselves die). It is disgracefull to say that God punishes his brlivers he who taught us forgiveness. What can you say to those countries which allow gay marriage and lesbians and satanic believes. Is it because of homosexuality in Sodom and Gomorah were burned with fire from above. It is better to think twice before we speak ones. If you come to say God punishes his belivers who is going to believe but instead he sacrifices his only beloved son.


  3. Reading the bible the only reason for unhappiness on earth is the sin. This is the case from the very starting : It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
    and you will eat the plants of the field. Genesis 18. And unfortunately there will not be anymore prophets to come to warn these :“For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.” (Matthew 11:13). The new prophets will be there to strengthen the church.

    Now the question is whether these are because of sin. Jesus says the men in Siloam is not the worst culprits. He added that everyone will perish if they dont repent.

    I didnt say the unwelcome events on earth are because of their sin. But I insisted the need to repent. Jesus’ last word to people of Jerusalem is important : But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. Luke 23:28.

    So you can choose, whether to cry for Jesus, or cry for us and our children.
