.....supposed to help us while we're on earth?
Or is the "Good News" strictly pertaining to the afterlife?
He doesn't seem to be helping all that much while we're on earth.
imagine God is a lab scientist,
complete with white lab coat, slide rule and pocket protector...
in His laboratory the are millions upon billions of experiments going on,
all His laboratory assistants have wings,
and there are thousands of shelves filled to the brim with petri dishes...
back in the corner,
the dusty, dark end of the universal laboratory,
there is a tiny lil petri dish labeled earth/humans/#3...
God, attending to His rounds, makes a notation on his heavenly clipboard,
"this one's toast"
They (the entirety of the Godhead) do not interfere,
They merely observe, and await for the appointed time...
hope this helps...
