3 Strange But True Reasons Why God Doesn’t Feed All the Starving Children in The World
OMG! I will never apologize for being Asperger or Atheist. This is how “normal neurotypicals” see the world; the universe is a supernatural monstrosity.
Evil exists, but not in Nature; it is the consequence of the beliefs and behavior of Modern Social Homo sapiens. Why isn’t this dangerous “mental derangement” not featured in the DSM, and yet Autism is?
God, Can You Please Make it Rain Turkey and Gravy?
If God is all-powerful, then can’t He make it rain turkey and gravy from heaven to feed all the starving kids in the world? The answer is that of course God can do that if that’s what He wanted to do. But since God doesn’t make it rain turkey and gravy upon the starving kids around the world, then we have to ask, ”Why doesn’t He?”
If you’re not able to answer this question, then one of two things is going to happen to you. You’re going to struggle with your faith because you’re going to have doubts that God is a good God. Or you’re never going to find out the truth about God, and you’ll make the mistake of thinking that God doesn’t exist.
This article is for you if:
1. You’ve ever wondered why God doesn’t feed starving kids around the world, and you struggle with the answer.2. You’re skeptical of the Christian God or other gods. 3. You want to be able to answer this question when it’s asked of you in an accurate and positive way.
Why The “Strange But True” Title? The reason I call these reasons that I’m about to share with you “strange” is because if I were God, I would do things differently. But thank goodness, I’m not God. (OMG!)
What may be strange to one person may not be considered strange to another. So depending on how familiar you are with this subject, (NT insanity?) you may agree with me that these reasons are “strange but true”, or you may not. Either way, I hope this will spark a good dialog about this topic. (Totalitarian demand for obedience to supernatural hallucinations is a really good jumping off point for “good dialog”!)
I’ve thought of three different reasons why God doesn’t feed the starving children of the world.
Reason #1 – It Isn’t God’s Responsibility to Feed the Starving Children of the World
Every year, I have the privilege of going through the one-year Bible plan. That means that I will read the entire Bible in one year. I don’t share this to impress you. But I do share it to establish that I’m quite familiar with the Bible. Of all the times that I have read the Bible from cover to cover, I can’t think of a single Bible verse in which God makes a promise to feed all the starving children in the world. (But there are threats that “God” will make people eat their own children!) So when somebody accuses God of being unjust because He has the capability to feed starving children, and He doesn’t, then it’s that person that has a misunderstanding of God. (No misunderstanding here: your imaginary master is a true psycho-sociopath)
GOD: “Hey, it’s not MY JOB to control the vicious uncaring assholes I made in my image. LOL!”
If God Isn’t Responsible For Feeding Starving Children, Then Who Is?
The answer is you and me. I can think of numerous Bible verses in which God instructs His children to feed the poor people of the world.
And Christians are doing such a great job of it! Bomb entire nations into a state that can only be called “Hell on Earth”, and then send “missionaries of democracy” with bags of leftover “dog food”. Take photos: lie, brag about how “empathetic” and compassionate you and your “god” are. And of course, “profit” from the crimes.
Proverbs 28:27 says, “He who gives to the poor will not lack, But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.” James 2:15-16 says, “If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,’ but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?” So if you’re one of those people that thinks God should feed the starving kids around the world, then you are shifting the responsibility.
God isn’t responsible for feeding starving children, you and I are. Then why not demonstrate ethical behavior by refraining from creating mass suffering by committing predatory wars, practicing profitable poverty as “economics” and enforcing starvation?
Reason #2 – God Isn’t Like Humans
Atheists make a mistake when they say things like, “If I saw a starving child and had the power to feed him and I don’t, then I am evil. (Uh-yeah! That logically is cruel uncaring behavior) That’s the same thing with God, He is evil because He has the power to feed starving children and He doesn’t.” (You said it! Why not believe your own “instincts” about all this Christian “we’re the good guys” social evil?)
The mistake that atheists make here is that they compare themselves to God, or they compare God to themselves. They put themselves in God’s shoes. (This is utterly BONKERS. God does not exist, and he certainly wouldn’t wear shoes if he did)
God’s goals are different than our goals. His purposes are different than our purposes. His way of justice is different than the human way of justice. But here’s the lesson that’s to be learned: any time you blame God for not doing something that you would do, you’are making an idol in your own image. (Christianity IS a religion of “idols”)
What does that mean? It means that you’re making up your own concept of how God is supposed to act, which is something the Bible warns us about. (My, my – mustn’t use what little intelligence humans have to realize that religion is a con game)
Reason #3 – God’s Justice is Coming Soon For All
You and I want to see justice have its way immediately. Think about all the hate crimes in the world, the rapes, and the murders. You and I want to see those people (Christians commit hate crimes, rape, murder and a long list of heinous behaviors, as a matter of religious and political policy) get what they deserve.
But while we judge others for their heinous crimes, we overlook the sins that we commit in God’s eyes. While God does see hate crimes, rapes, and murders as sins, He also sees lying, cheating, and hating people as sins too. (Your god hates human beings and other living things)
So since God is a just God, then He’s going to have to give justice to all if He were to judge the world today. That means that there would be a lot of people who would receive punishment for eternity for breaking God’s standards. (And how LOW these are!) So instead, God is saving His judgment for Judgment Day. That’s when everyone is going to get judged for what they did on earth.
Those who broke God’s standards and did not receive His son Jesus for salvation will end up going to hell.
This is deranged thinking by any standard; it expresses rage and hatred for all human beings; it’s sick, sadistic and “loves” torture. Why is “religious psychopathy” not in the DSM?
But those who do put their faith and trust in Christ will end up going to heaven. So when you don’t see justice taking place immediately, it’s because God is giving everyone a chance to repent, and put their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
How About Other Reasons?
I have to admit, I’m not a know it all. That’s where you come in. Can you think of any other reasons why God doesn’t feed the starving kids around the world? (“He” is a hallucination: “He” doesn’t exist. Thank God!)

I leave you to read the comments: I need to spend some time in Nature, where evil does not exist…
