    If there is a God then He should have more power and being able to assist with the problems that humans face. Maybe something like superman does. Flying around and helping here and there. Or maybe even everywhere at once. That would have been nice. Or maybe not? Because what would be left for humans to do?

    In a world full of flaws and evil we would have liked to have Someone that is fair and powerful with Wisdom to assist in everything. Like in the days of Solomon. Where he was gifted with an extraordinary Wisdom to solve all that was wrong in a Powerful Way of God.

    But it seems for the casual looker that this is a World void of God.  Or maybe they just didn’t notice something yet?

    If you break a leg, or otherwise get injured, what happens?  It heals up as best it can.  That’s the kind of way that God’s love plays out in the world I think.  (If God existed, which I don’t believe.)

    IMO humans invented a God that may or may not intervene in human affairs, but in any case a God whom is never to be held accountable for whatever He does. Kind of like the historical father of a family, or leader of men… in a world of flaws and evils of Man. (Well ok, some evil women too, but that’s secondary.)

    Albeit in reality, we exist in a world of human flaws and an uncaring universe (and our own invention of myths to fill in purported details), so we poor humans are, in any case, left solely to our own devices, for better and for worse.

    Yep.  He wants His Witnesses to answer.

    Mostly that is the way because humans like to experience the ability of their own bodies without God being miraculously involved.

    Those that invent is suffering more in the end because of their dishonesty.

    but in any case a God whom is never to be held accountable for whatever He does. Kind of like the historical father of a family, or leader of men… in a world of flaws and evils of Man.

    That is not a “Loving God”  The Christian God Loves it when He is taken on for what He is doing.

    (Well ok, some evil women too, but that’s secondary.)

    Yep.  But of course they are only “evil” to those that want to enjoy that spirit of them.

    I agree.  And many humans are also “uncaring”.  Just like their “universe” they created because of not caring for it.

    so we poor humans are, in any case, left solely to our own devices, for better and for worse.

    Those who wants out and have God for their Father gets help for the “better” of course.

    I agree. That is why He sent witnesses to “answer”.
