I read in the paper today that some punk robbed and raped an eighty year old woman near where I live. He thought himself “the man” breaking her soul like that. Before leaving her in tears and shame - as he walked away with a smile on his face feeling pretty bold. Sorry God but that’s just not something I’m willing to forgive. Why God why do you allow such things? I really need to know. I know you have your reasons Lord; but now’s the time for them to show.
Millions killed by famine, tsunamis and great floods. Why the need for such destruction? What feeds your greed for blood? Thousands more killed in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Where will it all end - I ask, is there now no turning back? I know you’ve got a master plan; things for us to learn. But can’t you show more interest Lord I’m getting most concerned?
I thought religion was meant to bind us all together, not tear us half apart. Don’t you see that it’s your own scriptures that are; the cause behind too many a heinous act. I can’t believe you’d allow that Lord and free will is no excuse. Help us God I plead of you now’s not the time to snooze. I know you’ve got your reasons Lord, but why can’t you call time out? A lot of evil permeates of that there is no doubt? It really can’t go on God; there must be some way for you to help us out.
Materialism, jealousy and ego are the devil’s work I do agree. But why is he allowed to tempt so openly and so free? It’s like asking a wolf to tend to your sheep; such reckless is unforgiveable and causes me to weep. Why God why do you allow such things? I really need to know. Why is this self-destruction allowed can’t you see my tears weep and flow?
I’ve seen the wonders you’ve created; felt your touch and love you so. But why can’t you send more angels down? Let not this evil grow. I know you’ve got a master plan; things for us to learn. But can’t you show more interest Lord I’m getting most concerned?
I’m told to have faith in your promise, not to question your will here on earth. But how can I not speak out when your hand in things has for too long; gone in dire dearth? Help me understand God, set my mind at rest. I can’t believe I’m being made to witness this as some nirvanic Spiritual test. I know you’ve got your reasons God, I’m sorry now to ask. I may not be the best of my kind but I’m still taking you to task.
Why God why do you allow such things? I really need to know. I’m tired of turning the other cheek; there’s got to be a better way to go!
