Why God Allows Suffering?


People do not understand suffering because they do not understand how Satan through sin, has created all the darkness in all of the world that brings about great suffering!


       People today all over the world, as well  as people of all the past, have and are crying out to God in prayers, pleas and supplications, begging for help and answers to this question. The question they ask is, "If You (God) are a loving God as Your Word says You are, why then, do You allow all the suffering, sorrow, misery and early, untimely deaths to take place over all the earth?" To really understand the answer to this question, a person must begin at the beginning of life to understand what God first said and commanded of man that would keep  him from sin and   all of the untold suffering, sorrow, misery, and early deaths.

       The very first fact of truth and command that our Creator God gave to man in the beginning has been rejected by all of mankind, Gen. 2:9, 16-17, 3:1-3. God in the beginning, commanded man to choose the way of the tree of life as the way to live his life. If man complied and submitted to His plan, he or she is promised by their Creator God that they can live forever and have a happy and joyous life while living on this earth. Choosing the tree of life is choosing the way of light that illuminates the way of understanding to receive eternal life. It is also the way of receiving God's Holy Spirit from God that is based on man's fulfilling His demands of  obeying   His laws and commandments that produces God's love, joy, peace, happiness and real success and fulfilled lives and in the end, eternal life. God also distinctly, clearly, commanded man in the beginning not to choose the way of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which was another way of life that was also set before man. The history of man, the Bible, proves that whatever God commands, man  does the opposite.
   
      God says in Gen. 3:3,   "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden (the forbidden tree), God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die."   This means for man  not to desire the fruit of this way of life that this tree bears, for it will bring eventual suffering and death. 

      Here is where man committed the first sin, breaking the first commandment, and that sin was the sin of idolatry, by man putting first what Satan,  the god of this world, told him what he should and could do by desiring and eating of  the fruit of this tree, above what God, man's Creator, had commanded him not to do.
Satan told man that he could go ahead and eat from this God forbidden tree and would not reap the fruit or wages of sin, resulting in suffering and death. Satan took on the role of a minister to Adam and Eve, but just like his ministers are doing today, Satan lied to man about man's fate by telling him he could go ahead and sin and not have to reap the wages of sin.

    Today, throughout Christianity and all of its preaching as well as other religions, Satan is still telling man through all of his ministers and priests, that he can continue to sin in his life and behavior, that is, a man can live and continue daily in his sin as long as he accepts the name of Jesus Christ, or the name of some other prophet and will not reap the wages of his sins. Satan did not tell man that sin, disobeying God's commands, brings on shame, suffering, misery, sorrow, death and early, premature deaths. But man opted to choose the way of disobedience to his Creator God by choosing the way of Satan and sin, which is the way of suffering. Sin brings on suffering and suffering eventually brings on death. "There is a way which seems right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of  death," Pro. 14:12. Christ in His teaching  tells man to "repent or perish." Repent of following the way  suggested by Satan, where man, through all of his so called Christian governments with its so called Christian constitutions  inspired by Satan, can make his own laws and will not perish.
      
    God in the beginning, set before man two choices of life, one was the way God refers to as the tree of life, where God sets the laws for man to live. The other choice was the way of Satan and sin, that God refers to as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, or the forbidden tree, whereas man can make up his own laws. But man's laws always conflicts with God's laws, by compromising and permitting the breaking of God's laws and commandments and will always bring suffering and death. God defines sin as the breaking of His Laws and the end result of sin is suffering and death, Gen. 2:9,16-17.           
     
   This forbidden tree and its fruit, appealed to man because it gives man the knowledge and freedom of deciding for himself  what laws that he thinks are good for his life and what laws he decides to reject, rather than following God and what laws He has established as good and of love, and what is evil for man's life. This way of the forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, is the way of Satan, and is the way where man has established sin in his life, and is the way of darkness and the way of death, with no promise of long life or eternal life, and in many cases brings early, premature deaths. Again God repeats the same verse twice, "There is a way that seems right to man, but it will end in death," Pro. 16:25.

     Choosing and eating from the fruit of this forbidden tree produces the way of pain, suffering, misery, sorrow, curses, diseases, and confusion about one's purpose in life. However, man today does not like to relate all of his suffering, misery, sorrow, and pain as being the fruit of him continuing to follow what Adam and Eve chose in the beginning, the forbidden way of life. All men today by birth, are born into families following this choice and who refuse to accept the truth, that all of man's suffering, pain, misery, and sorrow is from this way that man has been choosing and continues to follow since the very beginning of man. Man is bent on making no real and everlasting changes in his life and because of this, suffers greatly for it. Read it in Gen. 2:16-17.

     Man accepts and believes a false teaching from all of Satan's preaching ministers that suffering, pain, and sorrow is the way of life that was created as part of man's life in the beginning, and there is nothing that man can ever do to change his life from the suffering and his continual sinning of following this way. This is all the lies of Satan and his ministers and they all are going to have to pay dearly for all of their lies and false teachings very, very soon. Read what God has foretold He is going to do with men or women who continue to preach Satan's lies, and who are preaching false doctrines and falsely representing Christ's name. These are Satan's ministers, who also are stealing from people through tithing and offerings to finance their deception of Satan's work, all in the name of Jesus Christ, Zech. 5:3-4, Pro. 3:33, Rev. 21:8.

     To clearly understand this wisdom, knowledge and understanding, let us, for example purposes, look at a family situation that consists of two, godly, righteous parents, who have come to be commandment keeping parents through Jesus Christ, with children who are not yet godly and righteous, who have not come to see the importance of commandment keeping as the only way of life to live. Their children are having a tough time desiring to live their lives by their parents instructions that teaches them to obey God's 10 commandments, which are God's standards of conduct and behavior for man. These commandments teach a child how he is to love God and his neighbor, which are the most sound, basic, outstanding, and loving laws for any growing child, and for a God fearing society to live by anywhere in this world. Keeping God's commandments are also requirements any child must  come to understand that he must commit  himself to obey, in order to be accepted by Christ, to receive forgiveness and eternal life, Deut. 6:1-2, 7, 17-18, 24-25, Mat. 19:17-19, Rom. 2:13. Please study and meditate on these Scriptures.

    One of the main reasons that children today have a tough road in accepting righteousness as the way to live is, because of all  the world and religions around them are so evil and wicked, and rebellious to authority, and actually teach against righteousness and keeping God's 10 commandments. And so children today, because of this false teaching and peer pressure, feel that they would not be accepted by others of their age and most likely will not. It takes a strong and courageous person or teenager to stand alone.

      Today's young people cannot in person see Jesus Christ, so He seems not real as being God's Son, who came to this earth to give His life for them. They cannot understand that even Jesus Christ definitely did not fit in, nor was He accepted in man's society, and also suffered great persecution and eventually killed. They cannot see how Christ brought Good News of salvation as a tremendous benefit and everlasting goal that a young person and all people have to work and fight for in their life, because of Satan and all his evil Christ professing churches. So they can not see the need to live righteous lives and accept Jesus Christ and His forgiveness for sin as the only way of receiving salvation. Christ is the only door that anyone can enter for receiving eternal life, John 10:1-10, but a door that demands obedience to God's law as a requirement, Mat. 19:16-19, Mat. 5:17-19, John 14:21; 15:10-14, I John 5:2-3. Any minister who tries to refute these Scriptures as proof about commandment keeping being a requirement for being forgiven by Christ, had better read about his and his family's fate in Zech. 5:3-4.

     So today's young people look at  God's 10 commandments, as today's society and churches look at God's 10 commandments, as nothing  more than a historical document, and not as the way to obedience to their God, not as the way to righteousness and not as the way to be accepted by Jesus Christ, to live their life in order to qualify him or her to receive Christ's forgiveness for sin to receive eternal life. Christ's Word tells us in Rom. 2:13 "For not he hearers of the law (God's 10 commandments and statutes), are just (justified, forgiven) before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified." It is not the keeping of the commandments that forgives one sins, only accepting Jesus Christ and His shed blood can do that, but keeping God's commandments is the basis for being accepted for forgiveness by Jesus Christ, if it is not, then Scripture would be contradictory. Notice the words in the above verse, it is "the doers of the law, (the keepers of God's 10 commandments) that shall be forgiven, justified, and be accepted by Jesus Christ." Yet, today's Christ professing ministers throw this Scripture and other Scriptures like it to the way side and continue to teach their faith only salvation, with no law keeping requirement as the fruit of their repentance, to be accepted by Christ for one's forgiveness of sin.

    The reason that today's children and young people are having a tough time living by the commandments pertaining to the tree of life is all because the world around them seems to be having a ball, a great life, following the forbidden tree, following the ways of rebellion and sin, all following the ways of pleasures for the moment. All of this is following the ways of Satan and his ways of sin and darkness. Parents and their children cannot connect the dots of following this God forbidden way which causes and brings on suffering and early and untimely deaths. The words of Christ in Luke 13:3, "Repent or Perish" has no value and meaning to them.

   Besides this, today's young people  have been misled by all of today's professing Christian preaching ministers, who constantly and consistently teach and preach to them that sin, daily sinning, is the way of life and will always be a part of their life and nobody, including Christians, can live their lives without sin, which is a Satanic lie! How can such liars escape the damnation of hell and the great fire of the tribulation?  So this forbidden way, with all of its evil fruit, appears  appealing to children and parents lustful eyes. Read about Adam and Eve's looking at and choosing this forbidden way as it was given in Gen. 3:6, "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat." The is  the first example of a weak husband, not being a true leader of his home, to make a righteous and sound decision and just look at the evil seed that this sinful decision has caused to be sown all over the world.

    God throughout His Word, compares eating and drinking as eating and drinking of His Spiritual Word, to receive eternal life as bearing good fruit, and not as some particular fruit from a tree that bears fruit such as an apple and etc. The fruit was something that soured their heart and mind and caused them to turn from what God commanded of them, to following the ways and commands of Satan. It was the fruit of sin and this fruit appeals to weak people set on following the way of sin. Christ says one must be fed on the milk and meat of God's Word, not fed on man's and Satan's word and fruit of following the forbidden tree, as produced in most all churches as most are fed on today. Study Christ's words in Mat. 7:15-23. "You shall know them by their fruits." And Christ says that He is going to reject these false ministers and warns His true followers to be aware of their evil fruit and wicked works that teach and work iniquity, teaching no commandments and law a true Christian has to keep to be accepted for salvation, verse 23.

      The very first children, Adam and Eve, who were created on this earth, rebelled against their Godly parents, parents who are God and who said We created them in our image, Gen. 1:26. But in their children's minds, and as it is today in the  minds of parents, both could not and cannot grasp that this forbidden way will bear all the fruit of suffering, sorrow, much pain and even premature death . This suffering, pain, misery, and sorrow is all caused by all the sins of following this forbidden way, consisting of such family destructive sins today as people using mind changing drugs, from over and under the counter use, excess alcohol use, and committing the sin of lusting for naked flesh, pornography which God condemns, Lev. 18:1-30, and fornication of every sexual perversion, and all leading to other crimes such as robbery, violence, child abortion, sexual child abuse and family destroying adulterers and adulteresses, bringing about divorces, all to the destruction of families. All of this is the fruit of following the forbidden tree and creates great suffering and misery, James 4:4.

     Lev. 18:1-30 says, "You shall not uncover any flesh that is not a man's female wife" These sins all seem to be so pleasurable and enticing for the moment. But these Godly parents, as it is with any godly parents today, seem unable to get their children to understand that these ways of Satan, are the ways of suffering, sorrow, and pain, which are all the ways of the forbidden tree. This is not the way to live, even though all of their children's friends are living that way, as well as their parents and all seem and appear  to be having a good time, happy time for the moment, big weekend parties, even in light of, example after example, of  suffering, pain, sorrow and early deaths among them.

     All of the many examples of what is happening in suffering lives today and in the past, all the suffering, pain, sorrow, and early deaths does not seem to have much effect on people, parents, and children today as it pertains to the forbidden way of life that God commanded man not to choose. Following this forbidden way and its way of much suffering and sorrow, is not causing people to ask questions about their lives and to examine and change their lives from the ways of suffering, pain and death, to the ways of real joy and real everlasting happiness and everlasting life. A good understanding have all who keep God's commandments, understanding why there is suffering, pain, misery, early deaths and sorrow. Study Proverbs 3:1-35.

    Some verses from Proverbs 3 is verses 1-8 "My son, forget not my law, (God's 10 commandments), but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck: write them upon the table of your heart: So shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and men. Trust in the Lord with all your heart: and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil, It shall be health to your body, and marrow (strength) to your bones." And in verse 33 God says, " the curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but He blesses the home of the just."

     All of mankind have been born into ungodly families who are following this forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and is the tree or way of life that leads to much suffering, sorrow, pain, misery and death, the way of darkness that provides no real purpose, no everlasting goals, and no worthwhile planning for one's life that will reap everlasting benefits. People following this way of darkness, which is basically all people, basically all families, and yes, basically all churches and their congregations, are continuing to follow this forbidden way. It is because families and all their pastors and preachers continue to teach that suffering and sorrow is something that nobody can really understand, nor can they do anything about it and is the way of life and sin that man is destined to live. What they are saying is that they really don't know the answer to suffering. Satan loves these lies and teaching from his ministers, because eventually these lies will bring suffering and death to his ministers and all of his people which is the goal of Satan. People today in churches do not know, nor will they believe they are in fact worshipping the god of this world, Satan, II Cor 4:1-4, II Cor. 11:13-15.

    This is the way of life that is evil and a way of life not exposed in today's religions because Satan doesn't want you to know the answers to suffering. Yet it is the way that all people continue to choose and live by the fruit and ways of this forbidden tree, and so don't really understand what life is all about and why there is so much suffering, and what is the connection of suffering with this way of life man has chosen to live. God's Word says Satan has the whole world deceived, Rev. 12:9. Man does not believe this! God, in the beginning, said this will be the way of man "unless he (man) puts forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever, " Gen. 3:22.  This means that man can change things, that he can do works in his life that can stop all the suffering, prevent the sorrow and pain, if he really desires and sees the need to do so. He can arise, repent, come out of all the deception of Satan, sin, which is the cause of all the darkness and suffering in the world.

       Suffering and pain to people desiring understanding, in reality can be a true friend, a loving friend. Suffering and pain are red flags that go up telling a person that something is wrong or that the way of life he is living is not the true way that God commanded man to follow and live in the beginning and needs close attention to make a change in his direction. This attention and change could first be in one's health and diet. This change can help man to begin to feel well, healthy, and be more energetic, more able to study and pray. One must come to educate himself about all the deceiving food that is accepted as good food, (but most is not healthy food), in order to love himself, to keep himself healthy, if he is ever going to be able to learn to love anyone else. God says love your neighbor as yourself. As Proverbs 3:8 says, "It (following God's way) shall be health to your body and strength to your bones." and secondly, a change in the evil way of life and behavior that he is living, needs to be changed to a righteous life, to begin keeping God's 10 commandments, to love God and to love his neighbor as himself. All of this understanding is the beginning of following the way of the tree of life that God commands. If a person does this, Pro. 3:4, "You shall find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man."

      The way of the tree of life provides understanding all about one's life, one's purpose in life and all about what is causing all the  suffering, pain and early deaths. The way of the tree of life gives one the desire for truth and understanding, the truth about all the lies about the food one takes into their body and mind. The truth exposes all the food industry's deceptions in the accepted foods man eats, and all the deceptions in man's spiritual food he takes into his body, mind and heart that is put before him by the food industry and by preachers and people in today's religions and Christianity. Most all of both are big liars in what they advertise and what they preach. Choosing the way of the tree of life gives man purpose and value and direction to his life. The way of the tree of life guides man's feet out of the darkness of confusion into the true light of understanding, providing a clear path and a real fulfilled purpose for his life. A person who accepts Jesus Christ is accepting the tree of life. He who accepts the name of Jesus Christ (His authority) must depart from his sins and darkness to be accepted by Him. Jesus Christ was sent by the Father "to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his sins, his iniquities," Acts 3:26

       So the very first fact of truth that every person needs to understand, who desires the answer to this question of Why God Allows Suffering, is; that unless a person truly understands the real purpose and goal for his life, which was created by His Creator God for his or her life, and is pursuing that purpose and goal with all of their heart and life, then they will not understand Why God Allows Suffering ! People come and go and perish, living out their life span, never understanding their purpose and goal of their lives and hence, Why God Allows Suffering, and early deaths. All of man's and religion's vain and useless works will be burned up in the end, I Cor. 3:13. Only the truth and works of any person based on truth in God's Word, will be retained by God's chosen and resurrected in the end and judgment.

     Man's  suffering, pains and early deaths comes from diseases of every kind, auto accidents of every age, babies being murdered in the womb, or poisoned shortly out of the womb, or crimes of robbery, rape, and murder committed against and taking seemingly innocent people's lives of every age. Or great suffering from man created, senseless wars, killing and maiming of young lives for all of their lives and all for ungodly reasons, or the kidnapping and stealing young  boys and girls for ungodly, wicked, perverted and abusing, sexual purposes. These are all great sins against God and His law and sins against one's neighbor that soon will bring death to such evil doers. God's command and judgment that the wages for sin is death will soon be carried out and fulfilled by Jesus Christ, Rom. 6:23, against all of these evil, wicked people for all the suffering that they have created in people's lives.

     All of this evil and wickedness creates great suffering on all of man's society and world, and comes from man following and choosing to live his life by the way of the forbidden tree, the forbidden way that bears all this fruit of sin, evil, wickedness and darkness. God is not in any of this because evil man is all against what God first commanded for man, and so God has chosen not to have an open ear to all the pleas of this suffering, pain and sorrow. Isa. 59:1-2 helps one to understand this situation and God's answer to suffering where God says, "Behold the Lord's hand is not shortened that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities (your sins) have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Read study also Isa. 1:4-20, where it says beginning in verse 4 "Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Verse 15,  And when you spread forth your hands, (supplications in prayer) I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Read this whole chapter for more detail.

       Other examples of suffering, hopelessness, misery, and death with no answers come upon  seemingly innocent people who are struck and killed by lightning, or seemingly innocent people killed by tornadoes, fierce winds, earthquakes, volcanos, tsunamis, or other like disasters. These people are killed like two examples of untimely deaths Jesus Christ gave in His Word, where a wall fell on 18 people, killing them all, or where some people were going about with their religious works, sacrificing and were killed. Christ asked the people the question about these deaths and suffering, "Were these people more sinners than their neighbors," Luke 13:1-5? Christ said, "Are these people sinners above all men?" Christ said, "No, except you repent, you shall all likewise perish." What are people to repent of, so they will not likewise perish in some freakish accident, or other like time and chance accidents that are killing more and more people everyday and bringing great suffering, sorrow, hopelessness and grief upon family members and close friends?

      Repentance throughout the Scripture has always been to stop sinning, change one's behavior, stop breaking God's law, which is the 10 commandments,   statutes, and judgments. Jesus Christ is telling all people unless they fully repent of transgressing God's laws, all of His Ten Commandments, His statutes,  that all people will in time and chance, perish. There is no protection for any sinners from perishing when time and chance circumstances comes upon their life if they are not doing what God commands in His Word. God will not protect people who will not submit to the way of life that He has commanded for all to choose, and who have rejected His way of righteous living.

      Time and chance deaths and accidents come upon people living outside of God's plan and living by the forbidden tree, which is  basically all people. Yes, there are clear, God given, answers to all of people's suffering and pain, but people are not being told so today by their highly worshipped false minister or false priest that they follow and even worship. Today's professing ministry are in the ministry for all the money that they can receive from their sheeple, and their great desire to raised up before the people, and still are not able to give answers to people's suffering,  misery and curses and no clear understanding even to understanding Christ's Gospel, His wonderful Good News plan of salvation. This is one of reasons why they took the TV show "The Book of Daniel" off the air because it was exposing today's Christianity for what it really is, an evil tool of Satan. Today's professing Christians could not stand to see all of their sins protrayed before their very eyes, so by their popular demand had the film banned. However,  there is hope for those that will change, Zeph. 2:2-3.

       God is not a respector of persons or nations. God will bless any person or nation that looks to Him as their only True God, their True Provider, their True Protector, and as the true Sustainer of all that person or nation needs. Every nation and every person who does not look to God for all of their needs can expect oppression, depression, misery, pain and suffering from evil men and their satanic governments and satanic religions, and yes, even from today's accepted Christianity. They can also expect, because of man's greed, his evil and wicked heart, (Jer. 17:9) and all of his deceptions, a prosperity that dries up or goes sour, ill health, diseases and long continuance of diseases and suffering of every description and early untimely deaths with its young people, of babies in, or just out of the womb, young adults dying in vain from diseases and useless wars. All this brings on untold miserable suffering. Conditions on this earth will get so wicked, evil, that it will take the great tribulation with all of its great suffering and death, to cause a number of people to come to see their sins and come to a  deep repentance, Rev. 7:9-14.

      God has created all people to be given eternal life in His Kingdom if they set their heart and determine with their mind to live their life by the way God commands. God created every person to walk,  and to live their life by Christ's Word, His Spirit and His Ten Commandments of love, which will produce not only love, but peace of mind, real joy and happiness and purpose for his life. Man must have God's Spirit and His Word in him to live God's way, which God refers to as The Way of the Tree of Life.

       When people transgress God's Ten Commandments, whether they are interested in fulfilling their purpose for life and receiving eternal life or not, all still will suffer from the transgression of any of God's Ten Commandments. This is a second main reason why people from all walks of life suffer and are dying early in their lives. It is all because God's Ten Commandments when broken, have power and authority over people's lives. People's ignorance of God's law and commandments does not free one from the law's authority and judgment and suffering over their life. All of man's misery, pain and suffering is the result of man having first chosen the forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which God commanded man not to choose and secondly this causes man to reject Jesus Christ and choose the way of transgression of God's Commandments which is the way of sin, darkness, and death.

      When a person looks at all the suffering and pain, misery and darkness that our society  is engulfed in, it is always the result of man continuing to live his life by the forbidden tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the tree of darkness for man. This second cause is, by the fact that man does not recognize and chooses not to follow the true teachings of the true Jesus Christ of Scripture and His command to accept His true Gospel, that is based on one's repentance to keep His Ten Commandments. They instead choose to  obey one of the false christs that Satan has through his ministers, raised up before them, a false christ of no law to keep to take the place of the real Jesus Christ of law that must be kept to be accepted by Him, Mat. 24:24.

    When a man's life is set and deeply entrenched in the ways of the forbidden tree, which is the way of the flesh, the way of the carnal mind and human nature, then the true Jesus Christ and His Ten Commandments become an enemy to man and his lifestyle. Read and study, Romans 8:6-8.

       Who is God holding responsible for suppressing the true way of God and holding back His truth in their unrighteousness, and is who God says His wrath will be against in His coming day of judgment? Read and study this statement in Romans 1:17-18. It is all of today's preachers, Satan's ministers, confessing to be Christ's ministers, but at the same time teaching against the true Jesus Christ and the keeping of His Ten Commandments. They are responsible for teaching a way and lifestyle that God's commandments are not important. This produces all the darkness and suffering upon this nation today. They, in their proud ignorance and arrogance, teach the continual following and bearing the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which is the way of darkness and evil, the way of sin, the way of ignorance that nobody can overcome their sins. Today preachers are lying to the people. God pronounces a curse upon all liars, who   swear falsely in His name and are stealing from the people all in His name, Zech. 5:3-4.

     God's Ten Commandments are God's rule, law and God's standards for man's behavior, and if they are kept, constitute obedience and love to God and blessings in one's life. However, if they are rejected as they have been by today's Christianity as not being God's requirements that must be obeyed to be accepted to receive Christ's sacrifice and forgiveness, then Christ rejects all such people as rebellious sinners. Today, all across this country, God's Ten Commandments have totally been rejected but now are even being rejected as an historical document. Do people ever think what God their Creator thinks about this total rejection of His laws of love and by such evil behavior are in reality rejecting God the Father and His true Son, Jesus Christ? Can they really expect God to hear their prayers about all of their suffering?

      How can any church, along with their pastor, expect not to be the recipients of Christ's coming wrath by following and being a part of such Satanic teachings? How can any person, whether a church member or not, expect to escape suffering, pain, disease and the sword now and at Christ's coming judgment, who will not repent to acknowledge and obey God's Ten Commandments? How can one expect that Jesus Christ will accept them if they are living in disobedience to God's 10 commandments? Jesus Christ as the One and only true Forgiver of sin, as the only Savior of one's life will not forgive if there is no real and meaningful repentance.

    Today's Christian ministry actually teaches against the keeping of God's Ten Commandments as a requirement in one's repentance, as a requirement to receive forgiveness of sin and in one being accepted by Jesus Christ for justification, and as a requirement for receiving salvation. Rejecting God's 10 commandments as a requirement for receiving forgiveness of one's sins  is  a false teaching being committed by today's professing Christians and their christ-professing  ministers and qualifies both as false Christians and false ministers headed for disaster. Christ says beware of the false prophets and false ministers, Mat. 24:24, who are workers of iniquity, no law to keep, Mat. 7:23.

      Commandment keeping does not forgive sin, only acceptance of Christ's blood can forgive sin, but repentance, with change and agreement or covenant that one will set his life to keep God's Ten Commandments, is required by Jesus Christ to be accepted for His forgiveness of one's sins, to be justified of his sins, and to be given His grace, which includes God's Spirit, and eternal life, Rom. 2:12-13, Rom. 3:20,28. This is the Gospel, the good news of how one can be truly forgiven and be saved from the penalty of sin, which is the root cause of all suffering. Today's professing church members do not know what is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and thereby are not true members of the body of Jesus Christ, will continue in their suffering, sorrow, pains and premature deaths from diseases, and other such chance and circumstances, curses and disasters.

     God's teaching throughout His Word is, if you obey God's Commandments, to show that you really do love God and Jesus Christ, and one's neighbor, you will be blessed, II Chron. 7:14 and a nation will be blessed. If you don't obey God's Commandments, God plainly says to all in Deut. 11:26-28, "You will be cursed." "Behold I set before you this day a blessing and a curse: a blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: and a curse, if you will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day to go after other gods, which you have not known." Today people do not obey God's commandments so they are under a curse of suffering, misery, confusion, hopelessness, diseases of every description, greater violence every day, and so God has a deft ear to their pleas and crying because they will not repent.
    
       When a nation  comes under God's curse, that nation and all its people will suffer greatly! A nation and its people who are under God's curse, is given over to Satan and all of his deceptions, and all of his devices, schemes, and tricks, and bringing ever imaginable disease upon everyone's body and soul. Satan uses the gods people worship, such as the god of perverted sex, to bring early death upon the people's young children while they are still in the womb and even shortly after they come out of the womb through a multitude of shots and vaccinations. Satan inspired many men who become pedophiles to bring great suffering, abusing, torture and death upon the young boys and girls of the nation. In many cases, Satan inspires priests, ministers and pastors to become these evil pedophiles across the land and churches. They sell themselves out as his ministers and become prostitutes in a way of a faith that is suppose to represent Christianity. What a shame and disgrace that people still follow such evil people and ministers.

      When God sets a curse upon the land, He permits Satan to use men to teach lies and great crimes and bring wars into people's lives where their young boys and girls are used to die prematurely for man's lust, or be greatly maimed for the rest of their lives fighting man's wars and his purposes for wars, to increase the wealth of men, James 4:1-4. When Satan is turned loose upon a nation's people, he brings all kinds of freaky accidents upon the land, great devastations and life perishing disasters. Satan is the great perpetrator of all suffering, and is permitted by our Creator God to fulfill His will of bringing curses upon the land where the people will not repent of their sins. Satan is the god of this world who leads people in their worship of him and all of his evil and at the same time deceive them in thinking they are worshipping the true Christ.

      Read about what happened to Job and what God permitted Satan to do in his life and family to help him see his sin, believing that his righteousness was above God's righteousness, Job 32:1-2. And in Job 35:1-2 "Elihu spake moreover, and said , "Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God's." People of this great professed "Christian" nation of America are thinking the same thing about their self righteousness, that "their righteousness is more than and above God's righteousness." They believe their Christianity, that they have faith in, is above what the true Jesus Christ declares as being true Christianity. However, God is not blind to their self righteousness and all of their great sins and will bring upon them and the nation the same judgment that He permitted to be brought upon Job and his family, great tribulation, boils and diseases of every description, devastation in the weather, robberies, violent deaths, and the drying up of all of one's possessions, producing great suffering and death on people's lives and their families. This drying of man's prosperity has already begun with terrible high prices for food and gasoline for traveling to work and will only get much worse as God has foretold it will, Rev. 6:4-10.

    All suffering comes upon people because they continue to follow the way of life, represented as the forbidden tree, the corrupt tree that bears the fruit of sin and suffering. This is all because they refuse to obey the only true God and refuse  to choose His way, the good tree of life, which is the way that  bears the fruit of understanding,  the true purpose of life. Choosing the tree of life is choosing the way of love, joy, peace of mind and life fulfillment and opens one's mind to really understand why God allows suffering. However, to choose  and get started in this way of God, that God calls the tree of life, one must repent of the ways and fruit of the forbidden tree that man lives by in his life. Man must cut down this corrupt tree that is dominating his life. Check out what Christ says about the evil tree and the good in Mat. 7:17-20.

     One must desire the way of obedience to God's Ten Commandments, and accept  Jesus Christ as the only Forgiver of one's sins and as the only Savior of one's life. This clears the path of getting rid of pain and suffering and confusion that is  dominating people's lives and provides the path for peace now and eternal life later, Ps. 119:97-143. Study and meditate on this whole chapter of Ps. 119.

     The writer of this article  does not have  any inherent wisdom of his own to know the answers of why God allows suffering, but God does, and this writer totally relies on God and His Word for the answers. People write to condemn and judge this writer for his articles as if I came up with these words that are making known what is God's will, and what God commands in His Word. God's teachings and Word is God's, not mine! God says in James 4:11-12, "Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother, and judges his brother (as being evil because he teaches complete adherence to God's law) speaks evil of the law and judges the law: but if you judge  the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge." So the very evil that people  judge this writer for, are guilty of the same. God says that anyone that does not do the law, meaning who does not keep and obey God's law, God's 10 commandments, is breaking God's law. This means that this person is an evil, wicked, an unforgiven sinner, who will cause suffering to come upon himself and others and will perish. It is love to warn  people of this truth and fact of Scripture, James 5:19-20, and James 2:10-11.

    One must study God's Word and law and do what it commands and believe what His inspired Word teaches. Everything else, man's books and all of man's wisdom, man's knowledge, man's opinions about suffering and death is all in vain and without the true answers to this overwhelming problem and curse. Only God knows and each one of us must come to know the True God and His Word if  we truly desire to come to know "Why God Allows Suffering." Remember what God says in Ecclesiastes 12:11-14. Much study in all books other than the Bible is weariness of the flesh. "Of making many books there is no end: and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Let us hear the whole conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments: for this is the whole man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with ever secret thing , whether it is good , or whether it be evil."
