"I simply do NOT know why GOD has allowed all the Blood-n-Tears since Jesus' Passion" Freewill I think. We would not be fully human without it. God loves humans, the high point of His creation so much, that he allows us to freely choose whether to follow him or not. The price of that gift is the age old problem of evil and suffering that we see around us. It's never changed. Even the sacrifice of Jesus has not persuaded everyone. I can't fully understand it, either, Crewdog. God is unfathomable. As I often say "It's a good job I'm not Him. I'd have lost patience centuries ago". Happy Easter.
