Daniel its called pestalance.. God don't cause these things all free will..the devils rules this earth..actually called the prince of the air..such as when we are raptures..they would say UFO,s took us. Gods will is that none perish. It says MY people perish for lack of knowledge.. He cares about every little thing u care about that's how much he loves kill men..not God. After Christ died he said he is not wroth with men no more..but in the last breath only standing before him will men see his wrath.

Why does god listen to my prayers about letting my favorite team win while killing about 6 million children a year, all under the age of 5? Why doesn't the bible mention germs?

Bible overview. It is worth the read, especially if you are just starting to read the Bible or if you just came to the faith.
