A: if God exists , then why is there so much death and pain all around ?
B: Do you have a son ?
A: Yes .
B: Would you let him skateboard , despite knowing that it is dangerous and may harm him ?
A: Yes , I’d do so . All I can do is warn him of the consequences of getting hurt and pray that he gains the knowledge regarding the same .
B: God works in the same way . HE leads us to the path of pain so that there is enlightenment . Pain is a part of growing up .
I read these lines somewhere in a book I don’t remember, and they really struck a chord . Just wanted to post them .
