GOD is love. GOD is the greatest love. A lot of people challenge these sayings that if GOD is love. GOD is mercy. GOD is kindness. Why do GOD allow those wars?
There are many reasons. One of the main reasons is because men forsakeGOD. Men forsakeGOD either name themselves as the highest or revere other false deities. Kindly find the following history about men forsook GOD and caused all these tragedies. The main reason is because of the sinful nature of human mind, we will not have love without GOD because GOD is love and we will start all the atrocities to hurt each other.
The start of Act of Enlightenment was around late 17th Century. This was a badthing but not very bad by intention. This was because the original objective of Act of Enlightenment was to fight the dogmas, with the veil of Christianity and religion, to oppress people. In fact, during that time, the so-called Christianity led but the corrupted church, was not the true Christianity. The trueChristianity rested with the Reform Movement called by Martin Luther in 1517 and the subsequent proliferation of protestants.
The biggest faux pas of Act of Enlightenment, promotedsuccessfullyby Voltaire and Rousseau,was the removal of GOD from people's mind. The movement became very prevailing in France during the early 18th Century until the French Revolution in 1789 with slogan of Peace, Love and Justice. After removing GOD from the mind of the people, the love of people diminished. They started to believe that they should rule by themselves. They dethroned the French King, Louis XVI.
What a sarcasm! The tragedy started instead of Peace, Love and Justice. First was the leader of the French Revolution, Robes Pierrestarted a horrible persecution and holocaust,without any peace, love or justice,against hisown people, most of them were innocent. Eventually, 40,000 people were beheaded by guillotine and sword. The white fear caused people to rebel against Robes Pierre and killed him. Then, after someturmoils, Napoleon got his power in 1794. This also started the terrible wars in Europe. Plenty of people killed in the wars. Eventually, Napoleon was defeated by the Russian in 1812. This was really a fearful war because out of 400,000 French soldiers getting into Russia, only 40,000 of them got out of Russia. The casualties were 90%.
After the defeat of Napoleon, there was a short tranquility. But, later, Napoleon regained power of France and had the deadly war of Waterloo in 1815. France was totally defeated in this war.
Every body expected peace should come. However, an even more atrocious wars immediately happened in Europe, known as the 30 years War which last from 1816 to 1846. The casulties were even more calamitious, some of the counties had around 70% of the people slainin the war.
After the diastrous 30 Years War, people believed that peace should come.However, after a while, a dreadful unification war started in Germany. Again, a lot of people was killed. Eventually, Germany was united in 1871. But, this was not the end of tragedy. Then, there came the most severe economic collapse in European History in 19th Century which lasted for 8-9 years from 1871-1879, known as the Panic 1873. A lot of people starved to death or died due to nocareforillness.
Would like to stop here. After the elimination of GOD by the Act of Enlightenment in 17th Century, there came all the calamity.This is a convincing proof that without GOD, i.e. with love because GOD is love, GOD is the greatest love,alot of tragedies could start. It was totally not the responsibility of GOD. GOD is love. GOD is the greatest love. GOD is mercy. GOD is kindness. GOD is grace. GOD is goodness.GOD is peace.
All these are because people forsake GOD so all these good attributes also left them. So, people started to do all the cruel things and caused all these wars and tragedies.
Pray for people turn back to GOD, honor GOD and follow GOD's precepts. Then, Utopia will be on this land. Utopia that builtwithhuman ideology is built on sand. Only Utopia that built with GOD's commandments is built on aRock, the Cornerstone.
Matthew 7:24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:7:25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.7:26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:7:27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
In Christ love,
Thanks for all your hard work and research. So much of it ties into the martyrdom recently studied. Medieval to middle ages, considered heretic's under by Catholic Church, the Spanish Inquisition, Church of England and Henry the VIII persecutions, during the French revolution, etc. God ISN'T responsible when MEN do evil things in Christ's Name. Can place The Crusades in this bucket as well. Thanks for the reminder and to continue praying for peace among the lands.
