I don't mean to be disheartening. And I don't like to poke at people's religious beliefs.I try and believe in God, I try and have Faith. But, I really struggle to understand why there is so much unhappiness and disappointment in this world. Some folks put up with unbelievable emotional loads, it seems so unfair.
I want to believe that there is a purpose behind it all and some meaning to our disappointment and hurting. I'd give my life to have the answer to that.
when I was very young I read something that completely shattered the way I look at any faith.
It was something written on the inside of a wall of a concentrations camp during WW2 in Germany.
The prisoner had written(I am paraphrasing cuz I cant exactly recall the quote): "If there is a god, he has to beg me for forgiveness for the rest of eternity"
we all know god did nothing for that person.
unfortunately, there is probably no purpose in our suffering.
Life could just be a very cruel never ending nightmare that only ends with death.
