I’m unhappy and angry at God

I’m angry at God. I don’t understand how everyone in my life can find happiness… How the people that hurt me so much when I was younger can go on with their lives and be “blessed” and such while I hurt, yearn, and hunger for some kind of life other than this stale, depressing, hurtful one. I used to pray solidly for years… I followed as best as I could. I did everything and I believed. It’s truly as if God hates me. Or has forgotten me.
I need advice, because I’m pulling away from the only thing that ever gave me comfort; hope and trust in God. I mean, if He pulls away from me, why shouldn’t I from Him? I don’t want to do this… but I feel as if there’s no choice. Please… Help me.

Answer

You mention people who hurt you. Do you wish them to suffer? Could your distain for them be hindering your relationship with God?

God is loving and forgiving. He loves you and forgives you (if you have truly repented and put your trust in Christ). He wants you to be loving and forgiving too. This not only pleases God but is also in your best interest. Hate and unforgiveness hurts us and disrupts our relationship with God. Seek God’s love and power to forgive the people you may find unforgiveable.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Also, I don’t know how ‘happy’ Jesus was. He seemed to have other goals such as:

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

It certainly helps to be happy in life and I hope you can find some with Jesus as opposed to apart from him.

Why does God not love me?

Why doesn’t God love me? Nobody shows love towards me except young children and students? Why?  I love others but I don’t get it back. Why? If I show kindness, I get harm in return. Why am I not receiving love?

Answer

According to what you wrote, children and students love you but adults to not. Why? I have no idea. Does lack of love from adults equal lack of love from God to you? I don’t understand how one follows from the other. God loves you know matter how much or little others respond to your love.

So we’re saved by God…from God…?

Let me see if I have this one straight:

God created everything (heaven, hell, earth, humans…the whole lot).

The humans God created were, by his standard, not worthy of anything short of eternal torture in Hell (we’re all sinners, right?).

OK So God created a bunch of sinners. Then he convicted those sinners and sentenced them off to eternal death/hell…whatever you call it.

He then turned around to them and said “Here’s my boy, he’s gonna save you from the hell I’m going to send you off to for being a sub-par creation”

Believing in Jesus now saves you from the conviction of being a sinner, which was put upon us by God.

Since the whole “saved through Jesus” thing is God’s work, we’re saved by God….from God.

I’m sorry, if I’m missing something please, point it out…it just seems like this whole “salvation” thing doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Answer

OK So God created a bunch of sinners.

God created the first people perfect, without sin. He gave them free will which is better making them like robots. They chose to sin and when they reproduced, they created sinners, not God.

But some will say, “But God knew they’d sin. He’s still responsible!”

1. It was still their free choice.
2. The purpose of God in creating mankind was to create a people who have the ability to freely love him or reject him. To take away their ability to sin, God would have to take away their free will. Without free will, there is no love, for love is a choice. Without love, the primary reason for creating mankind is gone.
3. God took care of the sin problem for us. Just repent and trust in Jesus. It’s so simple, even a caveman can do it:)
