    God does not destroy what He creates. How do I know? Well... first of all He has given us a Natural Law which tells us He does not destroy what He creates; The First Law of Thermodynamics which states that matter and energy cannot be destroyed or created. Since time and space were created matter and energy have only changed form. Secondly, He tell us in Genesis what He created is good. He does not destroy what is good. It is not in His Nature to do so.

    God gave you free will to do what you want, to follow or not to follow..

    Although the old testament shows a very vengeful god!

    God, by and large does not interfere in our lives. Jump from a tall building and you will prove the theory of gravity.

    Tornados don't always skip over churches.

    The natural law dictates that we will be born, live and then die. The body will be destroyed. The energy dissipated, the soul, will be judged.

    The Jews did not see God as vengeful at all. They see God as loving and caring.

    I believe he was vengeful until Jesus died the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, which opened a bridge to God . I do not see anger in the New testament.

    Its that personal thing that most have a hard time grasping when reading it all. Many still do not get that Adam = red earth human- meaning humans or humankind.

    I look at this a bit differently. A church burning down might be good if a community rallies around that church for a greater good.

    The atoms are still there. When a tree sheds its leaves, the leaves go into the ground where the tree, or other plants, then take those nutrients and reuse them.

    The same when animals die, they either get eaten or they go into the ground and become food for something or other.

    Do things get destroyed, yes and no, the atoms don't get destroyed, they can change and become something else. This is life.

    No need to make up a God to explain this.
