Q u e s t i o n s  A b o u t  G o d

-Did the Creator create the world in seven literal days?

From David Guzik's Commentary:."Was this a literal day, in the sense we think of a day, or was it a geological age? Did God create the world in six days, or in six vast geological ages? The plain and simple meaning of the text is that He created in six days as we think of days."

"If the days were not days at all, would God have countenanced the word? Does He trade in inaccuracies? The question hinges on the proper use of language."....Kidner

"There ought to be no need of refuting the idea that 'yom' means 'period'. Reputable dictionaries know nothing of this notion. Hebrew dictionaries are our primary source of reliable information concerning Hebrew words."....Leupold


-Does the Creator care for some people more than for others? and what's God care about?
Acts 10:34; 1Peter 1:17.

Things God cares about:.1, 2. When you wake up in the morning what do you care about?
-Does the Creator know what's going on here or does He just not care about all the wars, heartaches, illnesses, greed, destruction and any other hurtful negatives you could mention?

Daniel 2:22; 4:25; Psalms 139:4; 44:21; 33:13; Proverbs 15:3; Ezekiel 11:5; Habakkuk 2:20; Acts 15:18.

Our Creator cares greatly about what we have done to each other and the Earth and its support systems. We have done horribly everywhere one looks. We have been masters at devising.ways of the pathway of death

The Creator when on Earth in the physical form of the one we call Emmanuel, showed that he cared greatly by all the people He taught, fed, healed, resurrected, wept over.(Lule 19:41; John 11:35).and trained:.Matthew 10:1,8.

The Creator cares greatly for us all, knows our hearts , when times are hard for us and is very aware of our presence here:.Psalms 31:7 "I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy, for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities.".Isaiah 49:13-16 "Sing, O heavens and be joyful, O earth and break forth into singing, O mountains. For the Lord hath comforted his people and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The Lord has forsaken me and my Lord has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands. Your walls are continually before me." Isaiah 66:18 "For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues and they shall come, and see my glory."

The Creator is also intimately.aware of all else that goes on in His Universe:.Matthew 10:29; Proverbs 15:3; 5:21; Hebrews 4:13.

If we wish to care for others as much as He does, then we too, like the disciples, need to learn how to raise the dead.
 


-Did God make us good? Here it doesn't seem so:.Jeremiah 17:9.

Why do some of us of good hearts think that we are not so good.(what is 'good'?).when the Creator thinks about us so differently, thinks about us as He created us?

"Is man evil? No!"....Bruno Gröning. Man is of God. Of course he's not evil, but he has allowed things in his life to take him away from God.

He created mankind and the Creator is.only.love.(1John 4:8,16), therefor, you are made in and with the love of the Creator and are of love and came into being human out of love. However and because of the Great Creator's plan for mankind, though he or she was born good, he or she was born under the cloud of Adam's sin, which was passed on to all mankind. 

An act of affection produced you into the physical:.Ecclesiastes 7:29 "Lo, this only have I found, that God has made man upright, but they have sought out many inventions.(just why would this be?).".Romans 9:11; Philemon 1:6;.Psalms 33:15 "He fashions their hearts alike. He considers all their works."."The Creator, your God created you all as loving persons. You are God's creations and you love. Love is life and life is love. Display love where you appear, display love in those places where you determine yourself and predetermine yourself.(think where you are going to be today and determine that you will love there.{1, 2}.no matter what). Love may be not expressed by words and love may be not expressed by feelings, however your actions are love where you create.(create the atmosphere where you go, even though your feelings may be against someone at the time)."....Grigori Grabovoi.

If the Creator is love, which He is.(again, 1John 4:8,16).how could He create you not to be loving? Though created in love, we soon latch onto the ways of the world which are the ways of the ego, with all that means and this begins to happen at around age 2 to age 3:.Psalms 58:3 "The wicked become so by being soon estranged from the womb.(original root word for word 'womb' is 'deep love'). They go astray as soon as they be born.(or, more correctly, as soon as they are able to speak, that is, comprehend.somewhat about life), speaking lies.(speaking lies to the degree of being on this pathway depends on the quality of the baby's parents)." Genesis 8:21 "...for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth....".Why? Move away from the negative side of living by looking for ways to express the goodness that is in you. It's always there. God is love.(1John 4:6-17).and from love comes life, our lives. If you keep love alive it will flourish. There's always two ways, two pathways. We're here to learn which one is best for us all to stick to.

From around the ages of two to three or so, about the time we begin to overstand what we hear because we are then able to draw on our memory, we realize that we are a separate definite personality, different from all others, a unique individual expression of all that we sense about us and this is confirmed as we live through life. It's about this time that we begin to see what the world out there is really all about. 

Most of us may go through life missing out on our dreams, because character is more important for those on the life path of high consciousness, than it is for those heading into selfish pursuits. And what has caused this headlong.plunge into selfishness? An example of a horribly corrupt person:.1Kings 20:1-28.

Having been born good and a particular wave in the invisible energy, a particular.aspect of the Infinite One, that is, we are likened to a particular leaf on the same tree or a particular water drop in the same ocean, we soon.drift further away.from the source, our connection through our spirit with the Soul.

We drift into our ego and allow mostly by default, the rule over us us and the leading of us into negative.circumstances, which are happenings along the road leading to death. But there is always a balance. It so happens that God prompts us daily many times, but so often we just don't listen and mostly because we haven't been taught to and that because our parents, who love us so much, didn't know what to teach us here.

And this happens because of lack of readily available information on the truth of our reality, our real selves, our connection with the Soul of all. And this is due to us becoming asleep.as it were.

Perhaps our parents were not spiritually.inclined or were bad ass parents and it is certain that our schools with their forced educational system, failed us miserably in this regard by removing spiritual atmospheres prompted by words of high consciousness, such as what the Holy Bible.(the Bible used to be read to those in school at the first part of the day and it should be again so and explained too, as best a teacher can).and some other spiritual books of high quality presented.

It's not because of the teachers, but because of the curriculums teachers must adhere to in order to remain being a teacher, that schools are now unable to feed the spirit of children, instead, for example, offering for mental consumption the ludicrous and erroneous.concoctions.comprising.evolution as being the beginning of organisms. But evolution should be taught in school. Why?

For decades many schools never taught anything but preparation for being a worker slave? What did they teach you about dealing with life and handling relationships, about how to be a charming and interesting individual, about critical thinking and analysis, perhaps discussion on solving the cause of financial issues. What about dealing intelligently with issues of the day and the ever so many errors made due to greed, lack of concern, etc.? What school encouraged its students to question, question, question and to come up with alternative solutions and views to what was being looked at?

Using the 6 questions regarding what one's attention may be on helps you gain information and analyze it; who, what, why, when, where, how? 
Like, Who made the decision to shape ...?
Like, What is the reasoning for implementing a policy like ...? Like, Why did history take a turn such as it did in ...? 
Like, When did ... end up being accepted as being true? 
Like, Where were those who should have been watching for ...? 
Like, How did it come to be that ...?

Poorly educated people don't like to be questioned because it may reveal how stupid many of them are. A well educated person loves to learn and knows proper learning comes from questioning, questing to find answers that are sensible and usable.

Apart from the people who control with the speed of greed as their byword, society thankfully, is progressing into a higher consciousness and at a rapid rate. This is affecting the world for good.(davidleffler.com/square-root-of-one-percent-calculator/).

Jeremiah 17:9 means it is in the normal heart.(man's inborn nature which is highly influenced by the prevailing consciousness).of man to 'circumvent'.(the original word for 'deceitful').others in selfish efforts to be and/or appear better, by such things as putting another down, thus lifting oneself up.

It is talking about the ego ruling, the basic selfish nature we have and nurture, because we have been trained.(conned).into believing this is the best way for us to be successful at life; as compared to the loving nature of the Great Infinite One: Philippians 2:3-8; Matthew 20:27,28. The heart being 'desperately wicked' is 'incurable'.(as the original has it).on its own to become any different. The heart is set by the accepted thoughts and it's the ego of each of us that conditions us to a pathway of failure and sadness.

The normal heart is to desperately be number one, even if it means circumventing another or climbing over another in order to get what the self wants.

Some turn to evil shortly after being born and will not allow themselves to be affected by any good they may come in contact with:.Psalms 58:3,4.

Our hearts are alike in the sense we are desirous of many of the same things from this world.


-Did God write the Bible?

2Timothy 3:16,17 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."

And, what is the Bible for, might be good to know.
 


-How can the Creator know how many hairs on our head that we have and how can He know about the sparrows?

-Does the Creator have problems?

No! Never! And you can be equal with Him. Therefore, you too can get rid of problems. The key here is to be open with your Creator. He wants you to be this way. Adam, the first man was not.

So, it is important to talk to the Creator about everything you are experiencing or about to experience. That's what prayer is. Talk to Creator-God while things are happening, right then and there. This is a 'secret' advantage. Only by talking to Him, by being totally open with Him about what you know and don't know but want to know about yourself, can you move permanently away from problem areas. Here the Creator helps.(how?).

We all know that to stop doing what is causing the problem allows the power from the Soul to come forth, but what if we have no desire to stop? This is why you talk to Him who has all power for all things.

We are all affected by the problem areas of life. Here are some problem areas we all have to talk to Creator-God about.
 


-Is Creator-God cruel? sure seems so when you read the Old Testament. The Bible talks about the Creator being comforting, but wasn't God all for cruelty in Old Testament times? Wasn't He destructive, using the dark side for destruction, not only allowing destruction, but giving instuction to wipe others out including women and children? Why such a contrast between the Creator in the Old Testament and the Creator in the New Testament when it says God doesn't change.(Malachi 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I change not....")? Yet, in the New Testament, Creator-God says to love your enemies and to do good to them? And, why.(Isaiah 28:9,10).is this all so difficult to understand? And why.(Isaiah 28:13).did the Creator make it to be like this? 

The Old Testament talks about hurts toward others:.Isaiah 13:6-9; 1Samuel 5:11,12.

God did cause afflictions upon men and women, but it was, as has been said, 'for their own good':.Isaiah 19:22 "And the LORD shall smite Egypt. He shall smite.and heal it. And they shall return even to the LORD and he shall be intreated by them and shall heal them." Psalms 90:3 "You turn man to destruction and say, Return, you children of men."

Those in the Old Testament constantly lapsed in their agreement to be God's people. Particularly, this was the ancient tribe of Israel. Time and time again this up and down relationship continued. The people just were easily led away into evil. So, God did something about it that the people just could not:.Romans 8:3 "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh.(weak in that, the people then just had no heart for God:.Jeremiah 11:7,8), God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.".So, God took care of it. How?

God is not a destroyer in any way toward man. It was always His heart that mankind could be in peace and be blessed with healthy food, happy families and be able to live in a friendly world, thereby having a great life in abundance:.Deuteronomy 5:29; John 10:10; Exodus 3:8 "And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey..."

Because of how things are set up by the Creator, mankind always has a choice:.Joshua 24:15. From the beginning of mankind to today, there has been choice, an available choosing between dark side influence.(?), which has been there a lot longer than have humans.(*).and the higher consciousness.(*).of the Creator. We choose by responding or not responding to the many daily prompts we receive. Why did mankind gravitate to the dark side and chose what he did?.Genesis 4:8; Jeremiah 44:16,17; 2Kings 17:29,30.

The Creator set things up to be a certain way and that way is the way of love. No other way but love could possibly be set than that by the Creator, because He personifies love:.1John 4:8,16. When we are in alignment with the Creator when we are loving.

His plan to save all. He sends destruction to get mankind to think about what may be causing destruction; sounds like God's a cruel monster, but He wants mankind to turn from ways that are hurtful.

Time and time again God wanted to do good for people, but the men and women of the time didn't really 'get it'?.Isaiah 65:11-15; Nehemiah 9:16-21; Psalms 106:43.

They didn't really believe God. They preferred to trust in what they came to believe was important to them. They trusted in their might and the things they made back then, rather than trusting in God, who always knows best and has man's overall greatest interest at heart, whatever that might be for each person. That's why Emmanuel taught others to pray 'thy will be done':.Matthew 6:9-13.

Most kings and rulers never got it and the people under them were, as a whole, mostly the same:.Isaiah 19:20,21 "...they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors and he shall send them a savior and a great one and he shall deliver them."

Back then it just went from bad to worse, to terrible and horrendous. Like a yo-yo, up and down the people went in their relationship with God. They knew God existed, but what does belief without action on it to change one's life get you? Nothing. In this were no better than the dark side:.James 2:19,20.

In olden times God looked after them but they still cared not for the things of God to affect their lives, that is, until they got into trouble:.Nehemiah 9:11-33 "And you did divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land and their persecutors you threw into the deeps as a stone into the mighty waters. Moreover you led them in the day by a cloudy pillar and in the night by a pillar of fire to give them light in the way wherein they should go...and gave them bread from heaven for their hunger and brought forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst and promised them that they should go in to possess the land...But they and our fathers dealt proudly and hardened their necks and hearkened not to your commandments and refused to obey, neither were mindful of your wonders that you did among them, but hardened their necks and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage.(they even.wanted to go back.into the bondage from whence they had been released:.Numbers 14:2-4), but you are a God.ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness and forsook them not...forty years did you sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old.(their clothes didn't wear out).and their feet swelled not...and they took strong cities and a fat land and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards and oliveyards and fruit trees in abundance. So they did eat and were filled and became fat and delighted themselves in your great goodness. Nevertheless they were disobedient and rebelled against you...and they wrought great provocations. Therefore you delivered them into the hand of their enemies...and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto you...you gave them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies. But after they had rest, they did evil again before you...yet when they...cried unto you, you heard them...and many times did you deliver them...yet they dealt proudly and hearkened not...Yet many years did thou forbear them...yet would they not give ear...Nevertheless for your great mercies' sake you did not utterly consume them, nor forsake them, for you are a gracious and merciful God...let not all the trouble seem little before you, that has come upon us, on our kings, on our princes and on our priests and on our prophets and on our fathers and on all your people...Howbeit you are just in all that is brought upon us, for you have done right, but we have done wickedly."

And it's the same story throughout the entire Old Testament. The people would agree to be good and follow those guidelines that would bring them all these good things. They meant what they said at the time and of course wanted all the things that would come to them:.Exodus 19:7,8; 24:3; Deuteronomy 5:22-33. But they had no heart to continue on with what they agreed to. And so time and time again, it was this story:

-Exodus 15:26

-Deuteronomy 4:30,31; 30:1-3

-1Kings 8:23

-2Kings 13:3-8; 17:13-34

-2Chronicles 12:14; 13:18; 14:9-15; 15:2-6; 15:12,15,19; 17:3-6;
 21:10,12-19;24:19,20; 26:5; 28:5

-Judges 2:14-18; 8:33; 10:6-16

-Psalms 78:32-42; 106:7-39

-Isaiah 9:16,17; 30:1,9,10; 47:10-48:10; 48:17,18; 48:22

-Jeremiah 3:6,7; 7:3-28; 8:6,9; 9:14; 11:8; 13:10; 15:6; 17:5-8,13; 29:13; 32:18; 35:17; 36:3; 44:18-23

-Hosea 5:4

-Amos 5:14,15

And, even after they did what they wanted to do, it was often the heartaches of their own ways.(*).that gave them no other option than to turn again to their Creator for help.

Consider what man's will throughout history has brought and is still bringing. If it weren't for God directing things behind the scenes, mankind would have long ago destroyed himself.

Today we trust in our might, our military and industrial capacity, not realizing and thus not believing that the Creator is all powerful. So, overall, it's the same today.(Jeremiah 17:5).with mankind wanting to 'go his own way':.Isaiah 30:10. That's really the issue. We'll never have the peace and prosperity and fairness and honesty that is a mark of a society of high consciousness, unless and until we start on the road of becoming as God is. That's the whole story and lesson of the Old Testament. How do we start on this road?

The negatives that started at the beginning of mankind on Earth.(*), are still widely prevalent today, because generally, man has the same consciousness today as back then and not having moved from it yet.

God did what was and still is, in accordance with His high consciousness principle of helpfulness and patience and if men and women would have wanted the ways of God which are good and helpful to them, their lives would have worked out.so much better. Alas, they chose the wrong way. People of low consciousness just can't see beyond themselves into a better life, even when its in front of them.

Does God ever turn away from anyone who seeks the real God, as opposed to all the falsies so many of our ancient forefathers sought?.2Chronicles 15:2; Deuteronomy 4:30,31; Hebrews 13:5.

The history of the Old Testament clearly shows that man just cannot save himself, so Christ had to come to make it so much easier. Now all one has to do is want to change and ask God for help to. But many aren't even sure God is real, so this should be looked into first and perhaps this second.

The low consciousness of man just never.'gets it', never can comprehend the goodness of the Creator, that He is indeed love, with all of love's attributes. The low consciousness of man is so far from what the Creator is, the Creator has to even awaken mankind or he and she would be hopelessly lost forever in the low consciousness realm. Mankind on his own could never find the way to the better life through Christ, the life that never ends.

1Peter 1:6 "...now for a season if need be, you are in heaviness through manifold temptations." Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Micah 7:18 "Who is a God like unto you, that pardons iniquity and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy."

And,.Psalms 137:8,9, Jeremiah 48:10 and Isaiah 13:16-18 seem to contradict.Proverbs 17:5 "...he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.(on word 'punishment').".Avoid having an impression that the Creator punishes. The universal law of reaping what we have sown provides results in accordance with our decisions.

The Creator is energy, invisible energy.(Colossians 1:15).that is intelligent. And, things are set up in the universe so that energy can be used for destruction or for edification. What does this direction depend upon? And that depends upon attitude and from attitude comes decisions which contribute to the life we are in:.Matthew 18:18.

The Old Testament shows the Creator.(remember, the Creator is intelligent energy).reacting to the attitude, the heart of the people.

The Creator, because He is over all His creation, is responsible for all that goes on in it, afterall, guess who made it?.Hebrews 3:4 "For every house is built by some man but he that built all things is God."

God was never glad at the destruction He was responsible for. He could have stopped it all instantly, but didn't. Why? Being the intelligent energy of all that is, He is responsible for all that goes on, even the sinning life you may have had or have:.Psalms 130:7,8 "Let Israel hope in the LORD, for with the LORD there is mercy and with him is plenteous redemption.(why should one want this redemption?). And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities."

God is the Supreme Being and has many helpers, both of the light side and the dark side. The Creator is responsible for the good and the evil. How can this be? We have always thought that the Creator was only good, according to how we think good should be. We need to look further to see long term for mankind as the Creator does. It's important to comprehend the world as being a stage for mankind's actions. Again, character is most important for our eternal future and life on Earth is the pressure cooker for developing it.

Job thought God to be cruel:.Job 21:17; 30:21.

The.International Standard Bible Encyclopedia.has this to say about that:."This has often been a matter of great perplexity to the devout student of the Bible. He has found it difficult to reconcile such practices, which bear the stamp of Divine approval with the highest standards of Christian morality. The Old Testament religion is a self-accommodation to the low moral standard of those whom it was designed to instruct. In the Old Testament we are dealing with the childhood of the world."

The people in Old Testament times lacked the heart.(Deuteronomy 5:29).of a higher consciousness. The way out of this conundrum.wasn't generally available until New Testament times. That's why there was such a drastic difference between Old and New Testament times.

The Creator back then was showing what He liked and what He didn't. The people wanted to follow His ways, but just couldn't.

And, the people back then just got worse, right from the first. They just couldn't keep anything that had to do with spirituality, which means love, because the way to change the heart from the unsane ego level to the peaceful level.(1Peter 3:4).of higher consciousness could just not be comprehended at that low level. Einstein comprehended this limitation of mankind.

The Creator was dealing with a cruel, unruly people back then, generally much crueler than today overall.(Jeremiah 16:12), so rules with severe penalties were put into place:.Numbers 15:30-36.

Creator knew the hearts of people back then and was pretty fed up with what mankind was fast becoming and this so soon after they were created:.Genesis 6:5,6. Right at the start there was murder where one killed his brother because of jealousy:.Genesis 4:8,9.

Even at the time when He brought the new nation of Israel out of Egypt and into a new land for them, there was trouble:.Joshua 6:1-10. Cruel nations then were out to get this fledgling nation of Israel. God provided help for Israel in getting rid of these nations and instructed them to destroy them or they would have been destroyed by them:.1Samuel 15:18. Pharaoh of ancient Egypt wanted them all dead if he couldn't enslave them.

But, the Creator always and only wanted people to 'come up higher', to come out of a lower consciousness. He wanted this for all people, then and now. But, the people didn't want it, couldn't see continuous value in it and were of the heart to 'just leave me alone to go my own way' and live my own life based on my selfishness and greed:.Deuteronomy 12:8 "You shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes." Judges 17:6 "...every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish...".Psalms 36:1-4.

The Creator always wanted man to be included in His life, a good life, a life of spirituality, a life lasting for eternity:.2Peter 3:9 "The Lord...is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish..."

History shows we haven't until recently, learned much. That's why Creator-God gave the ancient nation of Israel the now defunct laws to follow that are recorded in the Old Testament:.Exodus 24:12.

It was the nation He chose back then because it came out of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who were good people above others back then before the nation of ancient Israel ever came about.

The Creator loved these men and had special relationships with them. Now that opportunity is open to all mankind. Israel today is a spiritual Israel, a spiritual nation open to all.

Generally so bad were the people way back when, in some large cities there were less than ten people that were decent:.Genesis 19:4-29. They became so bad so quick because of the invisible but real evil influencing them

Genesis 37:24,26,27 "And they took him and cast him into a pit and the pit was empty, there was no water in it....What profit is it if we slay our brother and conceal his blood?...let us sell him to the Ishmeelites..."
Exodus 1:22 "And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born you shall cast into the river and every daughter you shall save alive."
Judges 1:6 "But Adonibezek fled and they pursued after him and caught him and cut off his thumbs and his great toes."
Judges 9:49 "And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough and followed Abimelech and put them to the hold and set the hold on fire upon them, so that all the men of the tower of Shechem died also, about a thousand men and women.
1Samuel 11:2 "And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this condition will I make a covenant with you, that I may thrust out all your right eyes.(the right eyes of the people over which he was leader).and lay it for a reproach upon all Israel."
2Kings 25:7 "And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and put out the eyes of Zedekiah and bound him with fetters of brass and carried him to Babylon."
Jeremiah 38:6 "Then took they Jeremiah and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire, so Jeremiah sunk in the mire."
Daniel 3:19-22 "Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Therefore he spake and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen and their hats and their other garments and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego."
Acts 16:23,24 "And when they had laid many stripes upon them they cast them into prison charging the jailor to keep them safely, Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison and made their feet fast in the stocks."
Acts 27:42 "And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out and escape."
Matthew 2:16 "Then Herod...slew all the children that were in Bethlehem and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under...".And, then, let us not forget the Inquisition and the massive cruelty in and around Tiananmen Square in Beijing where hundreds of students protesting for greater democracy were massacred and that of Mussolini, Hitler, Pol Pot of Cambodia and so much else going on even today in 'pockets' here and there. And what you can do about it.

The people way back when were blamers. They blamed ancient Moses for their present condition, forgetting the hardships in bondage they went through for 400 years:.Exodus 6:9 "And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel, but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit and for cruel bondage."

In all the cruelty and evil way back when, the Creator wanted something other than what the people were intent on doing:.Deuteronomy 32:15-29 "But Jeshurun waxed fat and kicked. You art waxen fat. You art grown thick. You are covered with fatness. Then he forsook God which made him and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they  him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God.(what about sacrifices today? Matthew 9:13; Hosea 6:6); to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee you are unmindful and have forgotten God that formed you. And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be, for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God.(and just what would that be?). They have provoked me to anger with their vanities and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people.(of God). I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in mine anger and shall burn unto the lowest hell and shall consume the earth with her increase and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them. I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger and devoured with burning heat and with bitter destruction. I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without and terror within shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men. Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely and lest they should say, Our hand is high and the LORD has not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!"

Who allowed it? What did He think of it all? Jeremiah 8:1-9.

But He didn't want it to be that way:.Jeremiah 18:8,10 "If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent.(change from).of the evil that I thought to do unto them. If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them." Jeremiah 21:8 "And unto this people you shall say, Thus says the LORD, Behold I set before you the way of life and the way of death." Deuteronomy 30:19 "...I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live."

The Creator wanted all to be happy, all to have much good and many benefits, but people back then were like they are today. They just keep opposing themselves and seeing no way out of the prison of ordinary consciousness they may be in. So they stay stuck:.Jeremiah 11:8-13 "Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart. Therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not...They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words and they went after other gods to serve them. The house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers...Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape..." Jeremiah 10:11 "...The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.(implying men so arrogant they act as though they are gods)."

The Creator, even under the Mosaic Law established back then, put in place guidelines for society that were geared toward producing good for all:.Leviticus 19:17; Exodus 22:21,22,25-27

What good is anyone for eternal life without the high consciousness needed to ensure peace, love and prosperity among all? In the Old Testament, the people then just continually got worse, so the Creator warned them what could happen to them and it wasn't nice:.Deuteronomy 28:43-68. It shows how much the Creator wanted people to listen to Him, so life would go well for them. But, they lacked the heart to do so, even after such severe warning.

And what about today?.Hebrews 2:1-8 "Therefore we ought to give the more earnest.heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward, how shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation...For unto the angels has he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that you are mindful of him? or the son of man, that you visit him? You made him a little lower than the angels. You crowned him with glory and honour and did set him over the works of your hands.(1Corinthians 2:9). You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him."

The Creator reveals all about Himself to Moses:.Exodus 34:6.

The Creator doesn't inspire things of character to be recorded in the Bible that are not in line with His character:.Proverbs 11:17 "The merciful man does good to his own soul, but he that is cruel troubles his own flesh."

The Creator was only out to help and would lift those up who would be in alignment with the principles of love that are good for everyone:.Exodus 24:12; Exodus 19:5 "Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people..."

In consciousness of Christ, there is a way out and into a better life:.Romans 8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel has made me free from the law of sin and death."
