    What's your take on suffering and pain?

    Given that severe suffering and pain impact so many people in the world and throughout history, what's your take on how a deity should/would respond? I'm drawn to the story of Father Damien (it's the 150th anniversary of his ministry): At his own request, Father Damien, a Roman Catholic...

    None have Suffered More

    I see all the Messengers of God have had to suffer greatly. This OP is about all the Messengers and Prophets that have come from God. I see their suffering was for us and our neglect of their Messages brings great sadness upon all humanity. They accepted all that suffering, and still do, so we...

    The Nature of Suffering, A Few Things I Realized

    Howdy It’s very strange how things work out sometimes. You’ll think you’ve gotten something mostly figured out when an unexpected move or some event happens that will reshape everything you had come to believe. For me recently it was less changing what I believed and more suddenly having an...

    "A" Torath Mosheh View of Human Suffering and Responsibility

    In another thread, well as a question I once answered on Quara, series fo questions were asked which I will summarize in the following way. Why would a serial killer be allowed to abuse and murder a dozen innocent children over the course of his lifetime? Is what ever created everything...

    Is it sin?

    It is normal to want to watch p-graphy. However, it is not normal to watch p-graphy. The unrealized desire to watch semi-naked ladies is the growing mental pain. So, get to love your pain and dissatisfaction. Life after the Original Sin is like one huge pain. The medicine, the doctors tell...

    Even if hell is not eternal in nature.

    It seems as though even if hell is not eternal in nature it still promotes an irrational fear in people and there are plenty of irrational fears that have lead to fanaticism. Would it not make sense to promote scepticism about irrational fears people have in an effort to undermine them and thus...

    In another thread, it was suggested that suffering is a result of past sins. While I have no concept of "sin" in my worldview, I see suffering as a result of attachment and desire. In your view, from where does suffering come?

    The Greatest Suffering is Love

    This is a discussion about Love and suffering. My thoughts are that God Messengers are our source of Love. I imagine, that to have such an all embracing Love, that nearly no one sees or appreciates, or even rejects, results in an unimaginable suffering. What do you think? Do you have a quote...

    the existence of god is a scientific fact

    This excerpt called ‘Science Discovers Intelligent Order’ is taken from page 6 of The Yoga of Jesus by Paramahansa Yogananda. “The rise of science served to extend the range of nature’s marvels, so that today we have discovered order in the deepest recesses of the atom and among the grandest...

    Is God Just? Would a just God allow suffering?

    One of the reasons that atheists often give for not believing in God, is that a benevolent, loving Creator would not allow such suffering and depravity to run rampant in this world (child prostitution, human trafficking, rape, violence, genocide etc). Indeed, even theists struggle with this...

    God is not a duality or trinity, God is one

    God is the unity between duality. All things simply happen in time with creation, there is no true notion of morality to them when they become one. Sin arises out of disobeying God's Will, which includes immense suffering because it links all life; all other feelings are a bit of a hustle. God...
