Why is there so much suffering on earth if God is Love?

The observation is right that there is so much suffering; so much difficulties, disasters and pain on earth today. But it will be wrong to attribute the origin of all these to God, The Creator.

Our Creator is a just, loving and perfect God—and with His Holy Will which carries the attributes of Justice, Perfection and Love, He rules all the worlds. The plan for the earth which He allowed to be prepared for us had no room for suffering and so much trouble as we have today.

Man must look for the genesis or origin of his sufferings, pains and tribulations within himself. Indeed, they are self inflicted; mainly because man has refused to follow the dictates laid out in the Laws of Creation. It is man’s obstinacy and attitude of wrong expectations from The Creator that have put him in the present troubles.

It is important to know and understand that there are self-acting spiritual laws woven deeply into the fabric of Creation by The Creator. These Laws record perfectly every stirring of a man’s thought. They also record his words and deeds. Through the natural mechanism in Creation the products of man’s thoughts, words and actions are planted like seeds into parts of Creation; there they germinate and ripen for harvest.

Upon harvest time, through the same perfect mechanism of the spiritual laws, the fruits are brought back to man to test of and enjoy.

Therefore looking at our earth today and the pains and tribulations, it is easy to conclude that man has not followed the dictates of The Will of God expressed in the self-acting Natural Laws. As it is often said: ‘man has sown wind and is reaping whirl wind!’

For example, it is a requirement of a Natural Law that when you sow yam, you must harvest yam at the end of planting season. Same way each person has the ability to determine whether his life would be peaceful or full of pains. It is true that what you sow is what you shall reap.

It is therefore appropriate now to remind all persons that we can bring peace, love and a replica of our Spiritual Paradise here on earth. But first mankind must have to change. And it is better to let this change start with you and I; with each individual human being. Do not wait for your neighbour to change first. You will also find strength and guidance in the new spiritual knowledge now made available to all mankind.
