Why, when everything seems to be going right, does all of a sudden someone pass away. Does God not carea about all of the suffering everyone will go through? Does he not understand the pain?
God is awsome and it hurts me when people question him.
I think that God takes people from our lives to teach a lesson and to make a point.
What is your opinion on this?
Death came because of the fall. People die because Adam sinned. Since Adem sinned everyone must die someday.
Why does God take poeple away from us? I think your somewhat right that he wants to teach us a lesson.
Death is full of lessons.
|The first lesson is that life is short whether one dies at 17 or at 80....Second, death reminds us that there is a spirit in man....Another lesson taught by death concerns the importance of eternal families. Just as there are parents to greet a newborn on earth, the scriptures teach that caring family members greet the spirits in paradise and assist them in the adjustments....|
A fourth lesson, and perhaps the most important, concerns the purpose of life. To be meaningful, life must be more than the ephemeral pleasures of youth. There must be a plan. Death, even if accidental, must be part of the plan....Death teaches that we do not experience a fulness of joy in mortality and that everlasting joy can be achieved only with the assistance of the Master.
There are a lot of different questions all tied up in the original questions:

Why do people die? The simple answer is that if no one died the world would become so overcrowded as to make it a living hell. The other answer, what I believe is that in death God isn't so much taking your life away as giving you eternal life with him. Why is there so much suffering and doesn't God care? Yes, God cares, he cares very deeply for us, but we suffer because Adam and Eve broke his one and only rule. Some might say how could God hold a grudge for so long? Well, to my mind I think that God has no conception of time, to him a second is the same as a millennium, so for him original sin happened only a second ago. I believe this and it helps me cope with the loss of loved ones. It helped me when my brother died at age 11 and when my grandfather died at age 100. I think we are all born to die at a specific time and nothing or no one can change that. How else do you explain a plane crash that kills more than 200 people but leaves one survivor. For me it wasn't that person's time.
If we are speaking about death from old age or sickness not caused by another person, then it's just part of the 'circle of life' so to speak. We are born, we life, and then we die when our bodies cannot work anymore. If we are speaking about others killing others, I don't have anything to say. It depends on the circumstances. Mental health, views on the world, chemicals in our bodies, nature and nurture, and so many other things.
