    Since you seem to think you are his self-appointed supervisor, perhaps you should take it up with him.

    Man’s greatest complaint about God is He doesn’t do things the way we would. When we look at our limits and God being limitless, what He values and what we do are not the samethings. You would have to grasp what He does and why to really make that call.

    you are suggesting that god thinks in a different way to humans, to the best of my knowledge there is no other thought than human thought, any other would be incomprehensible.

    Yes, His ways are not ours. Think about the attributes of God, He is the Alpha and Omega, He is everywhere, He created everything, and holds all together by the power of His Word! He knows everything so that at no time does any of the smallest of particles escapes Him, neither does how anything small or great relates to the rest of the universe. Which means everything all at once has God’s total attention!

    So I would say His views are different than ours.

    "..,to the best of my knowledge..."

    That's a good place to start.

    He is completely conspicuous by his complete absence.

    Cannot be that since God provides everything for us from the air we breathe, heath to
    our bodies, maintains the universe we live in and so on. So again, He doesn't behave
    like we would have Him. He isn't absent, instead He allows us to live life with the
    consequences of our actions good and bad. He is very merciful too otherwise we would
    all be zapped out of this life. Even your complaint is just saying God isn’t doing things the
    way you’d like them to be done.

    Sometimes in life, bad things happen that are not a result of personal consequence. If God is truly merciful and all-powerful, why doesn't he intervene in these instances?

    What makes you think He hasn't?
    This life is full of good and bad things occurring, for all you know God has been holding
    back a lot of bad things. Personally, I think it is getting worse because God is allowing
    us to do a lot things we shouldn't do to each other, so He is no longer holding us back
    from revealing what we really are with out Him.

    Would you say that, as a parent, you would be doing your child a beneficial service if you kept them from ALL harm?

    But we all have a direct line. Refusing to make that call is just that: your refusal.

    Basically, you put yourself on hold.
