As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
Dear Nawl, I was actually making two (separate) points there. The first was that absent some non-subjective Morality or Moral code any assertion one would make about moral standards or behavior is mere noise. I am not claiming to be an authority or even saying the Bible is authoritative (although I believe it to be). I am just saying an Atheist (or Agnostic) can never make a Moral judgement at all because without an Ultimate Authority (God or Deity) your Moral code is purely subjective. You have no basis for ANY morality because there is no Standard to weigh your code against.
