Why does Jesus the shepherd leave his flock at the mercy of a Super Wolf?
Why does Jesus the shepherd leave his flock at the mercy of a Super Wolf?

Scriptures say that God gave Satan/Super Wolf dominion over the earth and the power to deceive all of us on this world.

Jesus often used the shepherd and sheep analogy in scriptures.

Following that analogy and the fact that Jesus has been gone for some time now, one must wonder why, if our souls are so important to Jesus, he has left us and past generations at Satan’s mercy.

No shepherd I ever heard of would be so irresponsible to his duty to his flock. Especially since scriptures tell us that more sheep will be taken by Satan than protected by the shepherd.

Another breach of duty, FMPOV, is that Satan has been sentenced to hell by God, yet justice delayed is considered justice denied by most and God is denying mankind that justice.

I appreciate the free will argument that some might put but our free will was rescinded by God the moment he gave Satan the power to deceive us against our will. That situation is depicted somewhat in this clip which speaks to God letting Satan have his way with us.





This clip is just to show what some think of the shepherd analogy.





Can you shed some light on these two issues for me?

Because there's no such thing as a Jesus. Drinking Beverage

Can you give a concise version of your question?

An certainly no such things as a "satan". A "satan" (is a title), translated as a "deceiver". Anyone in 2012, who still believes in ancient Babylonian divine spirit beings to explain "evil" needs a course on Evolution, and also to read Elaine Pagel's "The Origins of Satan".

That is as concise as I can be with fictional characters.
I am still looking for a ghost writer.

No matter what question you ask, it boils down to two responses:

1. God did it.
2. God works in mysterious ways.

Okay... could you repeat your question in 1 or 2 sentences?

Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people.
Silly question to ask those who don't believe in God, so it's really up to you to handle this one. Drinking Beverage

Because God is in no way obligated to provide unicorns and rainbows to anyone - this includes good people, bad people, Christians, atheists, or anyone else.

The universe is perfectly predictable, and works according to the Laws of Probability. That's the only way any rational person would want it to. If it did not, (ie operate capriciously), one could never predict the outcome of anything, or rely on anything. Dump the idea that it's "all about you", (and not about individuals), and it all makes perfect sense.
