Why Does God Allow Us To Suffer

In the aftermath of the Boston tragedy, faith leaders and others asked an age old question:  “How can a good God allow his people to suffer such an atrocity?”  That question elicited the timeless answer: “I don’t know.”  The recent book: God’s Continuing Word – A Personal Message,” responds as follows:

The Clergy

1.11   You, among others, have questioned why we allow grief and misery to occur.  You wonder why we do not deliver the oppressed from their oppressors.  You ask why we allow good people to be afflicted with long term painful illness.  You are curious why some who are young succumb to death at an early age.

1.12 You want to know why they suffer or die early. You contrast their predicament with many who are selfish and survive to old age while enduring little or no suffering. You question why we did not make your world free from suffering. During periods of pain, tiredness, depression or insecurity, you ask why we did not place you in an Eden like paradise.

The Clergy

1.13 These answers are found in your reason for being. You exist because we needed you to exist. You were created to serve our purpose. We made you intelligent and aware so that you could relate to us. We provided a familiar setting in which you feel contented. We made your physical survival and progress contingent on your physical efforts. We based your eternal life on how you relate to all in your physical realm.  We made you to fear that which forces you to depart your familiar existence, death.

1.14 In our love for you, we created a will in you, and gave you a personal purpose.  We could have made you to mindlessly praise and worship us.  Such does not serve our purpose.  We do not need pets to assuage our loneliness. We need to relate to independent, intelligent, and conscious spiritual beings. We made you as you are to provide us with spiritual companionship.

1.15 Feelings are developed from exposure to physical life. Exposure to beauty may inspire delight. Exposure to grace can instill comfort. Developed compassionate and selfish feelings stem from exposure to need. For our needs to be served, physical need must exist.

The Clergy

1.16 This is the reason that suffering must occur in your physical world, to establish and perpetuate need. To that end, we created a world filled with need. Observing and feeling need afford us and you the opportunity to develop feelings relative to that need. Upon observing and feeling the need of our unintelligent life, we empathized with them. From our empathy, we developed compassion and love for them. By this love we knew that we would always love you.

1.17 From exposure to need, you can empathize with the possessor of need. We desired that you develop compassion and love for your needy fellow person. We hoped that this love would translate to love of us. We desired that all residents of your physical world experience love through compassion. We wanted you to know the glorious feelings that flow from compassion.

1.18 Whether incurred through accident, illness, attacks on your person or other circumstances, personal suffering would be bearable. When physical pain became unbearable, you would lose consciousness. Further, the event that stops physical pain, death, is a relief valve that ends all physical suffering.

    You know, all of this makes sense. See how a new mother loves her baby. There is not anything attractive about a new born baby. In fact they are ugly. Babies cant do anything for themselves. They are COMPLETELY HELPLESS!!! Sombody has to feed them, listen to the shrillest and worst sounds heard in the house and clean their p..s and s..t. I almost vomit just thinking about it. But, lo and behold, mothers seem to just love and care for these little ugly burdens for no reason at all. What makes this so amaizing is somebody felt the same about me and did all of the tasks that brought my helpless self over many years to adulthood. Thank you MAMA!!! I just love you for so many and many and many and lots more reasons.

    I love you! As I read passages from this book, I can feel my love for you filter throughout my whole being. I am so happy, I cannot contain the tears. I love All. You and I are of All, by All and for All. My glorious God; you, I and we are ALL! Oh what I would give to know that the world was reading this book with me. Peace, joy, love and understanding would be ours. Forgive this long almost treatise. I have always had writer’s block. Today while reading this book, however, I can feel my desire for everyone to read this book translate into writer’ juice flowing through my intellect. I no longer fear writing. From this day forward, I shall strive to be like the first person in the Book of the Eternity. I devoutly wish the same for you.

    Last night my friend Juliss said that she had come across a book that blew her away. She said that I must read it. After reading the opening two paragraphs, I could not put the book down. I read continuously for ten hours (bath and food interruptions only). I tell you I can’t believe the clarity and peace that I felt. It makes no difference your religious beliefs. If you have been waiting for some supernatural being, it is here in the form of this book. I am more than blown away. I am at peace with my being.

  • Juliss  On September 6, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Awesome! This book is really awesome. It appears as if our world is actually trying to destroy itself. Nothing could be louder nor clear than the message delivered by “Gods Continuing Word – A Personal Message. Read it! Read it!! Oh, you must read it!!!

    Prologue cont’d

    The path that you are traveling is painful for both you and us. You are not our first created companions. We constructed other physical spiritual intellect prior to your creation. Like this passage, every page in the book, Continuing Word – A Personal Message,” is compelling,. You should read it.

    I found this book is a physical and spiritual message that puts you at peace. It does not try to compete with the Bible, Koran, Torah or any other religious doctrine. But it is a powerful, powerful profound message that recognizes today’s realities. I am so thankful to come across the book. Everyone should read it. We would have a much better world.

  • yesanr  On April 24, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    The book is so awesome its what the world needs. Shows how to see the face of God. Tells what gravity is. Gets into quantum physics. took more than thirty years to write. It put me at peace.

  • Mersahj  On April 24, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    the book says that the message is coming from ALL. It says that whatever God you pray to you are praying to ALL. Female and Male God in one that gets all of its feelings from us and all physical life. Makes more sense that any I have heard of seen.

  • Mersahj  On April 24, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    Nothing like it in the whole wide world that I can see. Can’t get enough. 380 pages and I read it in a week and go back for more. Wow. you said the Messiah was here and you are right

    • vdstrx  On April 26, 2013 at 7:23 am

      After reading a short distance in the book, I felt washed in peace. I wondered if I had a mental disorder since nothing satisfied me. Now I curl up with the book and just feel its message to me. Sometimes I read the same passage over and over. Each time it comes through loud and clear. God bless ALL.

  • astjrr  On April 24, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    I have often wondered why you see pastors gobbling up all of the newest trikets but they never let their isms come into the present. Well this book is going to destroy the hyprocrasy. Watch and see. Its just about time!!!!!

  • charmyb  On April 23, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    How simple! How easy to understand! Yet how awesome and profound. It seems that the Messiah that everyone has been waiting for is in the pages of this book. I read it and it calmed my tumultuous mind. I am so much the better for it.

  • honnys  On April 23, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    After reading this article, I read the book. The message is awesome. It actually encourages us to think. It certainly does not try to compete with established faiths. The message supports every other faith. As a practicing cleric, I will integrate this message with my faith and continue to preach “what saith the Lord.”

  • roscovi  On April 23, 2013 at 6:45 am

    The reasons given here for suffering are compelling. I would never have thought this, but it sounds plausible. It surely answers the questions for me,

  • ethyy  On April 23, 2013 at 6:06 am

    This is so important. Why haven’t we heard about this book?

  • bettid  On April 20, 2013 at 10:59 am

    This is something that all faiths can get their thinking around.

    • jesiv  On April 24, 2013 at 4:51 pm

      It put me at peace to Vesanr. I have not stopped rejoicing since I began to read this book. It could only have been written by an unknown writer. It is right on when it says that it must be read by everyone.
