Q2. Why does God let people die and become murderers and kidnappers?

Wow! I have been asked this question many times and it is not that hard to answer.

When God created us He had a choice: Should humans be always kind, helpful and hurt nobody. Or should we have a choice to be selfish, greedy and always 'Look after number one' (me).

I guess that sort of divides us humans into roughly three groups.

(1) Those who learn about God early and know that He is real and can help us in life.

(2) Those who choose to ignore God and His ways.

(3) Those who have never even heard of a God who made them and loves them.

This writer has heard stories from missionaries, that some people are amazed to hear that. They cry out for more information because they have been brought up to believe in, and make sacrifices to unseen gods and 'the spirits' who rule their every thought. They gladly embrace the idea of the God who made everything and them!

Please note: Jesus said, and the apostles (disciples) mentioned a judgement day when we will answer for the good and bad things we did on earth.

Murderers and kidnappers come in all styles. The Roman Emperor Nero, Adolph Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot murdered thousands, even millions, and all of them believed they were doing the best thing - even that 'God was on their side.' YES!!! They thought they were right but were wrong. Remember we all have to face judgement and answer for what we have said and done. Jesus said so. (Matthew 12:26-27) and (Hebrews 9:27) The Bible has hundreds of references about justice and judgement.

To think upon: Imagine a human with no choice to be good or selfish. I imagine it would be like one who is hypnotised - who does exactly as the magician (hypnotiser) tells him to do. A bit like someone who is on drugs who has no idea as to where they are, or what they are doing - good, bad or normal.
