And why only focus on the Holocaust? Well the Holocaust is what my OP is about. Do you have an answer or comment about t y in the eyes of Jews and Christians] in allowing the Holocaust to continue and take its toll?
The reason I mentioned it was that although I don't have all the answers, hard to believe I know, I can tell you what the Bible has to say on the matter.....that is, assuming God of the Bible exists.
From the Biblical perspective, some of the persecution I mentioned was brought on themselves. They began acting wickedly and God sent judgement to them by conquering nations. God then turned his ear to their cries after such judgement and then judged the nations who conqured them to see if they had been too harsh.
In Revelation we are left with a prophesy showing the continued persecution of God's chosen people that is never ending. After all, if they are God's chosen people then they are a target for God's enemies.
Although the Bible is silent as to why they became slaves for hundreds of years and why the Holocaust was alowed to occur, we can speculate that there were similar reasons. Then again, maybe not. Just look at the life of Job. One thing is certain, however, according to Revelation this persecution will continue till the end of days.....and it has.
