I just want someone to explain to me why we have to deal with abuse and cruelty to make progress in this life. And - outside of the agency thing - why God doesn’t interfere with the works of Satan full-force.
Because if life were a bunch of roses, what would be the point? Our Heavenly Father knows that we can overcome adversity. He gave us a precious and powerful gift-agency. Everyone has it. That doesn’t always mean that people will choose the right. His plan is flawless. People are not. It’s unfortunate that people suffer abuses, and it was wrong of that person to do so to you, but that doesn’t mean it was God’s fault.
If God intervened to stop even the worst of sins to happen, would the Nephites ever have fallen? Or Soddam and Gomorrah?
God MUST let us choose our actions. Satan would have us be forced to do what is right. Why don’t you SEE?! Satan’s plan was to MAKE everyone be right! If God intervened every time something bad happened, would it really be any different?
