A loving God would not allow so many genocides.
In times such as these, believers begin to wonder 'why is God letting all these people die?'
'Isn't He a loving God?'
'Why so much misery and tragedy?'
Of course, at times like these the atheists and the haters of all religion simply declare, 'There is no God!'
But we know of such times from the Bible: the Jews were exiled to Babylon, their king and princes were killed, and most of the nation never returned to their homeland.
Over the centuries, people of all religions have suffered tremendous losses in lives and livelihoods. It's incomprehensible from a rational point of view that God could allow so many genocides as are now taking place in the Holy Lands and the Fertile Crescent.
So there must be an explanation from the Scriptures.
It must be that we define 'God' in the wrong way. We have been fixated on this word 'God' for a thousand years. In the time of the Scripture writers, the word for Allahoota (Godhood) did not mean the same thing. Allahoota was a not written down as a name. Allahoota was expressed as 'Allaha,' which we call 'God' today. Although the two words are used interchangeably, depending on what language one uses, they don't mean the same thing. Allahoota or Godhood describe a powerful and invisible spirit that created the universe, put man on earth, and maintained an ongoing dialogue with him through the prophets.
This vision of Allahoota (Godhood) has been ridiculed by the atheists, the humanists, the existentialists, and the non-religious in general, and rightfully so. The only people that have this type of faith are the fundamentalists who subscribe to one of the popular religions.
If Allahoota (Godhood) was a rational concept that could be examined with empirical measures, even the modern scientists would allow it to be taught as a subject in schools. There is no rational explanation for genocides of millions of people, whatever their religious beliefs, if Allahoota (Godhood) is all powerful and all loving.
The Scriptures would have to explain Allahoota (Godhood) in a different way, if people are supposed to believe that genocides and deadly plagues can happen at any time and destroy the lives of millions of people indiscriminately.
This is what Eashoa Msheekha did. What Eashoa Msheekha said and did could be explained rationally. He cast out evil spirits from the possessed, He healed the sick people who had deadly diseases, and He raised the dead. His deeds were witnessed and recorded for posterity. The New Testament was recorded in the language that He spoke. The Ancient Aramaic Scriptures hold up to scrutiny, unlike the falsified translations from the Greek and Latin.
Since there was no such word as 'God' at the time of Eashoa Msheekha, the concept of Allahoota could be explained rationally.
The Western Churches' idea of 'Godhood' and 'Godhead' give the impression that people can deal directly with their God. So they pray to him and ask him for victory, prosperity and health. They think that Jesus gave them such intimacy with their God that they can speak directly to God. Because their Bibles are based on fabricated doctrines and alien words, they don't understand why God doesn't always answer their prayers and why there are so many disasters and unmitigated tragedies.
What the Western Churches don't understand is that without Eashoa Msheekha they would not understand the meaning of Allahoota, the way Eashoa Msheekha explained it.
The Western Churches don't understand why Caiaphas tore his garments when Eashoa said that He was the Son of the Living Allaha. Eashoa didn't say that He was 'Allaha' or 'God.' He said that He was the Son of Allaha. However, precisely because of that, Caiaphas tore his garments and said, 'Henceforth what do we need witnesses for?' The reason Caiaphas tore his garments was because Eashoa identified Himself as the Msheekha (Messiah) prophesied by the Scriptures. He identified Himself as the Messiah who defined Allahoota in a different way than what Caiaphas and the religious establishment expected. There were reports of healings and minor miracles (feeding thousands with a few pieces of bread); but where was the power and the glory?
In the same way today, Eashoa Msheekha's Allahoota is different from the Western Churches' perception of Godhood. Eashoa's Allahoota is sacrificial and redemptive, and on behalf of humanity; His Allahoota is lifesaving, and resurrects the dead and the dying from Death. Eashoa's Allahoota encompasses the reality of the genocides and the evils of this world. Eashoa Msheekha transcends and supercedes the understanding of the Western Churches' Godhead and Godhood.
Eashoa's Allahoota is consistent with the teachings of the Scriptures, and His explanation of the fate of those that believe and those that don't believe is rational and can be believed by His followers. There is no need to invent any new doctrines to explain His words. His Milta or Manifestation of the Creator is credible and demonstrable. That's why He was called Maryah by His Disciples and Apostles.
In order to make the Faith in His Name, or Msheekhayoota, rational to Christians in the West, it is necessary to invent new words and complicated doctrines to explain how He was the fulfillment of the Bible stories. After a thousand years of such explanations there are still billions of people who don't quite understand how God could allow humanity to suffer so many genocides. There are billions of people, even those that profess the Christian faith in the world, that don't understand how God could sacrifice His only begotten Son to die as a criminal on the Cross -- as the only way to wipe out the sin of humanity, conquer death, and defeat Satan -- when the truth is much easier to understand: Eashoa's sacrificial love is an expression of Allahoota that the original Scriptures recorded in the Ancient Aramaic language, the language that He designated to be the Scribal Language (the Leeshana Ateeqah) in which all the Scriptures were recorded and preserved, and the Scriptures that reveal the rationale behind the whole existence forever.
