Is there a merciful God?
Humans have always believed that there must be a higher power that controls the universe. Many religions around the world recognize this supreme power as a figure known as God, Allah, Yahweh, and many other names. But is this God a merciful being? Does he show remorse? Does he care about us? If you believe that God had a place in human history than you have to agree he might not have been such a nice guy. Millions of people all over the earth were killed due to God’s supposed advice.
The Jewish Old Testament is filled with stories of God constantly letting his people endure torture and killing thousands of random groups of people. Now one could just say that these are just stories and the real God is not a mean being. Well, if you are to believe that God is truly there and runs the universe, than you must agree that he can do whatever he wants. So it is very likely that even though this being created us, he can sometimes choose to destroy people as he has supposedly done so many times throughout our history.
