Why I’m an­gry with God

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDI­TOR, Sir: THE WORD of God says: “Be an­gry and sin not. Let not the sun go down on your wrath.”

When Moses, the great ser­vant of God, came down from Mount Si­nai, he saw the peo­ple wor­ship­ping the golden im­age and he got very an­gry and broke the tablets with the Com­mand­ments.

I am an­gry with God for hav­ing the power to stop peo­ple from dy­ing like flies in Ja­maica and other parts of the world by the hands of vicious mon­sters, and He won’t.

I am an­gry with God for al­low­ing so many in­no­cent peo­ple, ba­bies and chil­dren to be bru­tally murdered by gun­men in this crime-pol­luted coun­try.

I am an­gry with God for not re­veal­ing cer­tain evil net­works that are cov­ered up. For ex­am­ple, He can make it pos­si­ble for us to iden­tify the cul­prits who are hand­ing out il­le­gal guns to crim­i­nals to slaugh­ter in­no­cent peo­ple – and those who are be­hind the gun trade.

I am vexed with God for not pre­vent­ing so many women from be­ing bat­tered and killed in do­mes­tic dis­putes, by their cruel so-called spouses.

I am up­set with God for not act­ing on our be­half when we needed Him most – in­stead of wait­ing for the day of reck­on­ing to come – be­fore He hands out jus­tice to the guilty ones.

I am not blam­ing God for what is hap­pen­ing in our world, but He can cur­tail it. Enough is enough. DON­ALD J. MCKOY don­aldm­ckoy2010@ hot­mail.com
