Here is an explanation of the question my soul seeks to answer: When a child dies of sickness.. cancer.. people question.. where was God? Why didn’t God intervene and allow this innocent, precious, loved being to live out their lives.. it isn’t fair.. a Christian seems to answer, “god doesn’t intervene in the goings-on of humans on Earth, because he gave us free will and Self-determination, therefore he does not intervene and save the child, otherwise we would not truly have free will and natural consequenses”... yet the same Christian will spend countless hours praying to God and when something good happens in their life (ex. Blessed with a child, winning the lottery) they attribute it to prayers being answered... implying that God intervened to cause this to happen in some way. These seem like contradictory ideas.. does God intervene or does he not ? Shouldn’t we be angry at God for not saving an innocent baby but instead helping someone’s great Aunt Carole recover from cancer?
