[qoute=welly] God has appointed all things in their place irrevesibly [/qoute].
eg he says if you respect your elders your days on earth will be increased, doesn't this show you ukuthi you can map out your destiny if you follow Gods ways.eg your days on earth are not fixed and irrevesible!! pastor chris is right.
GOD is an excuse for both the good and the evil. if you survive an accident, you found favour in his eyes, if you don't it was his WILL!!!
if pastor chris is an evil messenger of the devil, GOD is an evil perpetuator of evil. why does he allow a rape every 8 seconds and a 50 murders per day(in SA),400 years of slavery etc?
On your first point indeed if anyone fullfilled all of God Laws, God would indeed reward him with all the benefits promised in the Law. However not me or you or anyone else in all of humanity ever did fullfill the demands of the Law except Christ. We are born sinners and as such the Law of God cannot help you at all but to condem you to death. So never ever approach God on the basis of his Law you will die. Thats why people like Pastor Chris who tell you to do Laws so you can get favours from God actually commit you to death because you can never fullfill the Law. We are called to point people to Jesus Christ who only can give life not the Law.Notice that when you fail to do the Law then God must be just and kill you or else he would be unrighteous not to.
Indeed God has decreed the occurrance of rape,murder and all evil that exists for his own purposes for example the suffering of Job, Jesus Christ and as such this is good. Indeed suffering and evil is the biggest question there is that pertains to humanity and the existence of God. We do no service to humanity by ignoring it but rather to explore what the Bible teaches on this aspect. Indeed the Bible teaches exstensively on it I would advice you start by googling it on the internet and get the thoughts of great theologians who have written on the subject so you can have a well informed thought on it.
Being emotional about evil does not make it go away besides The Bible has said more evil shall befall us so we do well to learn about these things.
The more you see these facts then you will indeed see the neccesity of Jesus Christ to die on the cross that anyone may have life. No one can ever come before God unless they worship Jesus Christ in truth and everyone needs God without whom there is death that awaits you.
