IS JEHOVAH GOD RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE DEATHS, PAIN AND ANGUISH THAT HAPPENS IN THE WORLD? NO!
Let’s ask ourselves how did death enter the world? The FIRST REFERENCE TO DEATH IN THE SCRIPTURES OCCURS AT GENESIS 2:16, 17 in God’s command to the first man concerning the eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, violation of which command would result in death. The Bible says: “Through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Romans 5:12).
SO THE QUESTION THEN FOLLOWS THAT IF SOMEONE DIES IS IT BECAUSE OF A PARTICULAR SIN THE PERSON HAS COMMITTED? NO!
That will be a very shallow way of understanding the context of sin as presented in (Genesis 3:17-19) . The bible states that Adam and Eve, sinned against God and PASSED ON THE DEFECT OF SIN TO ALL HIS DESCENDANTS. The end result of that DEFECT as ingrained in our DNA is that we have currently lost the privilege of living forever. The Bible says that : “The sting producing death is sin.”—1 Corinthians 15:56.
IS JEHOVAH GOD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS, ATROCITIES, PAIN & ANGUISH OF THE WORLD? NO!!!
Some people have the propensity to blame God for their trials, when the real cause may have human roots or can be attributed to their simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. (Proverbs 19:3; Ecclesiastes 9:11) Others have accused God of causing natural disasters. However, the Bible says that “with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.” (James 1:13)
A drunk driver sleeps behind the steering wheel and kills people and we say it’s God’s will? Jehovah God has given us free will and he intervenes in our situations and problems as and when we ask him to. The world is also full of various issues that distract us from doing Jehovah God’s will. However he has given us our free will and it’s our choice to do good or bad but we are not necessarily insulated from the ills of the world.
It’s never his interest to take away a mother’s only child and cause her pain or anguish, he has no such interest. He has no interest in taking away that old woman’s benefactor so she starves to death. He has no interest in letting innocent people be butchered and slaughtered in day light as happened in Rwanda, Liberia and co. These are all machinations of the evil one. Jehovah is compassionate and has no such interest in causing us such pain.
Free will and free choice..what do we do with it? After that judgement …. He won’t take you out of the world pre-maturely and then go and judge you.
All of these pain and anguish happen as a result of the wicked system of things inherited when the first humans, Adam and Eve, sinned against God (Genesis 3:17-19) Adam passed on the defect of sin to all his descendants.
HOW DEATH, PAIN, ANGUISH WILL BE ELIMINATED?
God promises a time when “he will actually swallow up death forever.” (Isaiah 25:8) To remove death, he must eliminate its root cause, which is sin. God will do this through Jesus Christ, who “takes away the sin of the world.”—John 1:29; 1 John 1:7.
As per the bible’s account, Jesus Christ’s second coming is to arrest the orchestrator of this wicked system of things; Satan the devil. God’s Kingdom will “come” when it intervenes in human affairs, crushing all opposing rulerships and taking full control of the earth.—Daniel 2:44.
