GOD CHOOSES SOME BUT OTHERS ARE THE OBJECT OF HIS WRATH AND THIS IS BIZARRE FOR A LOVING CREATOR, AT LEAST THIS IS THE CLAIM MADE BY SOME INDIVIDUALS. The Bizarre Nature Of This Claim That An Omniscient God Would Give People Freewill And Then Disregard That Freewill Suggests Faulty Reasoning At Play. When any reasonable person begins to think about the God of love being the God of wrath, alarm bells go off.

The question assumes that the teaching of predestination before a person is born into this world is actually what the Bible teaches.

Those who subscribe to the concepts known as TULIP believe that God created people just to punish them eternally in Hell.

People who subscribe to ideas of predestination or predetermination are basically self-righteous hypocrites who think they are a cut above other people and have the right to do evil whenever they want without consequence because they are exempt from being judged and any punishment from wrongdoing (Hillary Clinton types—Satanists who drink blood and sperm).

Many ask the question of why does God create beauty and yet permit children to suffer from starvation, as per the accompanying image.

What seems to be most people’s problem is coming to grips with the reality that there are two gods that reign on Earth. One is the God of the Universe and the other is the god of this world.

The God of the Universe created the beauty that you see in the above half of the picture. The god of the world created the bottom half of the picture.

The reason the situation (where we see beauty and death exists) is because certain creatures have been given freewill.

First, the being that held the highest position among God’s creatures decided to use his freewill to oppose his Creator’s purpose. In doing this, he seduced another of God’s creatures to partake of something that would cause her to violate reason and follow her lusts. The woman’s husband saw her do what was prohibited and survive, so he willingly challenged God by disregarding Him and plunged headlong into captivity.

When the man listened to the voice of deception, he handed over his right to reign on Earth in Paradise to the deceiver, who became the god of this world. The deceiver has no intention of people enjoying life and influences them to do evil instead—in violation of what is right.

Humans are now born into captivity and sin surrounds them. Sin is a state where the gestalt of this world is controlled by the activity of the Evil One, who influences the thinking and the desires of people towards selfish destruction. Rather than populating the planet and having ample food, the Evil One causes people to reject the purpose of God and destroy the goodness their Creator desired.

The possession of freewill is the only hope a person has of changing his or her world. But freewill brings responsibility. Responsibility means becoming one’s brother’s keeper. Now if a person rejects the fact that they have the freewill to love another and they will be held responsible for this, they can only wish truth and judgment does not exist. This is why the Bible teaches:
  • If any one says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20)
  • Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. (1 John 3:15)
Unless people recognize that they are inherently selfish and they are in need of forgiveness, they cannot begin to exercise faith towards God by doing what is right. Even so, is it not right that such people be held responsible for what they have decided to do by refusing to love their neighbor and making a pretense that they are righteous?

You might think that it is wrong for people to be responsible for their any of their own decisions. But justice is only available to those who have freewill and are held responsible for their own decisions. In which case, those who are objects of God’s wrath—righteous judgment—are those who reject their responsibility to love their neighbor as themselves. The Bible teaches that murderers have not eternal life abiding in them, nor do those who hate other people.
