With a profound understanding of theist beliefs, natural catastrophes are no longer misunderstood as a deity's lack of good will, lack of power, or lack of compassion.
The fundamental error in this thinking is, that some people confuse 'paradise' with 'life on earth' .
A similar misunderstanding in Buddhism would be, to confuse the Deva realm with the human realm.
In both Theism and Buddhism, the human realm is a mix of both happiness and suffering
When the parents of a murdered child are thinking:
"How could God let this happen? There is no God, or an evil God, or a powerless God, if he is letting this happen!"
-then they are also ignorant of theist doctrine. We are given free choice.
A murderer has the choice to respect the "precepts" or "commandments", or not
...and will be confronted with the repercussion in both "faiths".
The result is always ours.In Abr. theism
: On "resurrection day" we face "judgment day". >>>Heaven, hell...purgatory...
: "Rebirth" , "new karmic situation". >>>"Nibbana", "Heaven",(devas)"hell" .... ghost, human, animal,...
Viewed from the victims POVs, karma and 'God's will' are both inexplicable.
