It might help me to work backwards, in responding.
• I appreciate your apology, but I did not see your initial response.
• Regarding His promise to come quickly, I’m not clear what adventists (small “A”) agree “quickly” is, and how we agreed on this.
I know life is “quick.” The longer one lives, the more unfair its brevity feels. As well, few live life optimally, as it pertains to the time needed to live the lives God requires of them for eternity.
So, frankly, He can take as long as he wants to get here; I appreciate the few extra minutes of sleep. If I die in a year, for all intents and purposes, He comes in a year. If in fifty, He comes then. Human beings have just begun to pierce the realm of the attosecond. The last thing God needs from me is an opinion on His timing.
• I wasn’t specifically calling you “childish,” but it helps if you receive it as such, because we are all childish in our understandings of the infinite. Indeed, “childish” is probably overstating it; “amoeba-ish” might be better put.
• Ask God anything you like. He approves of this. However, He does not promise you will understand the answer He gives, or that, if you do, you will like it. But He will not lie to you. Indeed, human suffering is one such answer.
• I’m not saying God knows how they feel. I’m saying God’s experience of themselves is deeper than their own experience of themselves. He is more they are than they are.
As well, no relief is provided, but God is not here for our relief. He is here to get us into shape for eternity. Doing this may involve experiences that, to us, seem oxymoronic and almost sadistic, to use your terms. Again, He respects us enough to not lie to us, or to tell us that the dung life gives us are really chocolate chip cookies.
• Many parents, upon the loss of a child, have said they experienced mental confusion. Deeply emotional events often are confusing. Many did not experience such fogginess. None of this is my point. My point is that the human burden God bears is deeper than that we bear, as an aspect of His infinite qualities.
If you are all-knowing, that implies that you feel everything everyone feels, have a perfect memory of all such experiences throughout time, You feel it all at once, and do so more deeply than people do because, just for starters, You also know what they are not doing that they should be doing, and what’s coming next as a result. You know what everything really means, in other words.
You are also powerless to act, even though your typical mode is All-Power, which deepens your experience of human frailty. (For God, this is probably the “day is as a thousand years” part.)
There is nothing worthwhile that any human being has done that did not involve suffering. George Lucas nearly died filming Star Wars. Making the Brooklyn Bridge killed J.A. Roebling. Parents suffer immeasurably just to raise children. I don’t see why building something as transcendent and indescribable as the Kingdom of Heaven would come with less bloodshed.
