Why would the creator destroy the world or is it just the systems in the world? You know, the evil parts.

He clearly has anger management issues and loves murder. Maybe that's why.

He would destroy it because of all the evil, hate, sin, etc. Earth is like Sodom & Gomorrah. Just sinful & wicked. So God destroyed it. God promises he will return & take us all up to heaven & make a new one. At least that's what my preacher has said.

His book, the bible does not teach this. No where in the bible hints mans final destination is in heavens or hell. New earth and new heavens is a new kingdom here on earth. Not another planet. This Kingdom a peers after the great cleanup of the earth. Making it new.

If you are a believer you go to heaven if not you go to hell. In the Bible.God promises he will come back & will make a new heaven & Earth.. In the Bible. Read Revelation.

Christlike motives is mess up. The teachings about heaven and hell are a convenient way to control the masses. It works every will, But in 2000+ years the earth should have global peace by now. Far from it. Its at a crossroads of nations warring with nations. Capable of destroying the earth over and over. Ending it for everybody. This does not sound like a loving GOD Not at all but by satan himself. Misleading the entire world. Selling Chirtianity to those who are buying it.

We would have world peace if there wasn't sin & if everyone treated others the way they want to be treated. If Adam & Eve & the serpent wouldnt have sinned then there would be no reason to destroy it. All God asked of them was to not eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil, and the serpent deceived them & they ate. All he asks of us is to obey & follow him yet we sin every day. And it isnt God that caused all this it is sin & Satan. He roams the earth in spirit. "He doesnt go after the non-believers because he already has them. He goes after us believers to get us away from God"- Bro. Micah. It is myself & all others duty as christians to be fishers of men. If non believers don't want to hear the word they arent denying us they are denying eternal life & God. So, believe what you want sir, I have no disrespect for you. I'm not saying whats right or wrong, just my knowledge & opinion.

The Bible has been around say 6 centuries,publish into every language,. It makes a giant impact on humanity. 66 letters covering the beginning of man to the end of evil. In the right hands it saves lives. In the wrong hands it kills millions. it is the word of GOD It has been proving very accurate concerning human history. People and places are real.Events coming true to his word. It is inspired from God himself. Do you know of any other book that wholes true to its massage for all this time. To ask how this book is still with us is a miracle. The massage hasn't change, it is us that changed.We are to smart and wiser than God. Man can only survey his domain, not create it, True? Most of this high tect .we created goes to military applications. This causes great harm to himself..His very existence and the planets survival depends of what man does today. Many fear this around the world. I am not putting my faith in men but in God. So if I don't take involution it is because it is to much to lose.

The world ended once or did it? There was only 8 soles are speared. They where righteous people.and the world was very sinful and shamelish. Thing about this. It rain for 40 days and 40 nights. Noah and faithful family did not go to heaven but survived his waft and the earth is sill here.(Right ! Jesus's sacrifice himself for all our sins and even for the brothers and sisters (many generations) not let born. Does this sound like a god with no love for all his creations. All he want's is for us to take refuge from him.

To clarified; Jesus died for our salvation even for those not yet born. Whow !

Brian, I was a faithful follower like you, but after years of refuge and no help from above, it seems pointless. I believe in God, just not the devotion part. I'm happy for you, you seem to have gotten closer than I did.

Oh Brian, that's the grandaddy of questions. All we have are faith and a belief system. What's your opinion?

The grandaddy of all is if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for everything. There are a lot of opinions that leads to distractions. One day for sure righteousness will be cool. Sound weird don't it?

WHY? I don't know. Did someone tell you he was going to? How come nobody told ME about this??? I guess I'm out of the loop again.

Perhaps for the entertainment value. You know, sort of like when people knock over houses of cards, or sand castles.

The Bible sheds light on this. For one thing it reveals that the earth, the planet itself will not be destroyed. This is revealed at Ecclesiastes 1:4 which states that the earth will stand forever. Another indication of the earth's permanence is found at Psalm 37:29 which shows that right hearted people will live upon the earth forever. A close examination of what the Bible says at 2 Peter 3 vs 5-13 show that what was destroyed in the flood of Noah's day will be the same thing destroyed by the fire of God's anger in our time. The wicked world of mankind, the systems of things on this planet not in harmony with God's arrangement. But the earth, the planet itself will not be destroyed.

The world belongs to satan. By human choice satan has dominion over it and God allows it for now because it is human choice. Everything that does not belong to Him when the time comes will be destroyed. Some believe it will be made new and perfect again as in Eden and heaven will actually be on a perfect, sinless earth which will be inhabited by those who chose to follow Him. Currently, tho, everything is of sin and evil. There is very little for Him to keep.
If a potter is creating a pot in the wheel and a flaw appears that warps the rest of the work he doesnt keep going. He smashes the work and starts over. If you have a car that breaks down you might fix it once or twice but eventually the cost becomes insupporrable and you get rid of it. The world is broken - in more ways than one and getting continuously worse both physically and spiritually. Soon it will be time to junk it and get the new model.

Ecclesiastes 1:4 tells us that "the earth is standing to time indefinite." Jehovah would never destroy the earth. However, He does speak of destroying this wicked "system of things." I invite you to follow this link. It has helped many who wonder the same thing!

God is referring to the system of things. Imagine if you had bad tenants in your home. If you wanted them removed, would you simply get rid of the tenants or would you burn the house down? Obviously, you would get rid of the tenants because there is nothing wrong with the earth! The earth has been described as a jewel in our solar system. At Isaiah 45:18 it refers to God in the following way says, "the Creator of the heavens, He the true God, the Former of the earth and the Maker of it, He the One who firmly established it, who did not create it simply for nothing, who formed it even to be inhabited." He wants the earth to be enjoyed the way he intended for it to be. I hope this helps.

God is not the blame, He gave mankind a perfect start, but humans have chosen to ignore God's requirements and decide for themselves what is good and what is bad. By doing this, they have come under the influence of wicked superhuman forces. "We know that we are children of God and that all the rest of the world around us is under SATAN'S power and control." 1John 5:19. ( Living Bible). "Follow the steps of the godly instead, and stay on the right path, for only good men enjoy life to the full; evil men lose the good things they might have had, and they themselves shall be destroyed." Proverbs 2:21-22 (Living Bible) "The godly shall be firmly planted in the land ,and live there forever, The godly man is a good counselor because he is just and fair and knows right from wrong."
Psalms 37:29-30. (Living Bible)

It's called free will, we all have. Though the worlds is mainly under control from greed ,hatred and power over others. Global corruption is harming many, many good people just trying to make a good living raising their children in peace are targeted by the ones that have more love for themselves than others or God. They know good from evil but good does not pay. Never satisfied for what they already have. They praise themselves openly and on the inside they do not act or think human. They are slaves to a god of weeds. Matt.13:39 , Jesus knew this 2000 yrs ago and warns the people in these close of the age. The world is the harvest and the true God's (Jehovah) angles will be the sowers in this massive day of judgement. If they only get to know him. He is not dead. Many believe this statement and see no future but pain.Armageddon is a blessing from God not to be feared unless you prosper in the world. They kill the truth like weeds in a garden.
