Why does God just sits back and watch?
- Anonymous1 month agoFavourite answer
It is because God has a blast looking down and watching us
through the holes in Jesus's feet. He doesn't want to miss one
moment of the continuing and endless travails of humanity.
God would be TOTALLY BORED if everything was just "perfect".

Not all the time. Sometimes I hear him moving furniture around up there.

That's presuming you believe in such a thing.
Where exactly would he be sitting?
How would he be watching? How can he watch the whole at once?
from any vantage point, you could only see one side at best.....
ah, but the earth rotates right? So, he's watching 24/7/ 365?
that's a lot of watching.

If God is loving, just, and powerful, why are we surrounded by evil? One common misperception needs to be cleared up first. Many people think of Almighty God as the ruler of this world, the one who is in direct control of everything. “Not one atom or molecule of the universe is outside his active rule,” said the president of one theological seminary. Does the Bible really teach that?
Not at all. Many are surprised to learn what the Bible actually says about who rules the world. For example, 1 John 5:19 states: “The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” Who is this wicked one? Jesus Christ identified him as Satan the Devil, whom he called “the ruler of the world.” Now, does that not make sense? Satan is cruel, deceptive, and hateful—traits that underlie much of the suffering that people experience. Why, though, does God allow Satan to rule?Source(s): Why Does God Permit Suffering? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/102006402?q=Wh...

Its because all gods are myths that reside in the minds of the deluded.

Well, that would depend on your definition of "sitting back and watching". Does that mean you think he does nothing, because I don't believe that's true.
If you mean that he just doesn't do something in your life, well that's different.
If we look into the bible, which is really the roadmap to God's personality, we see there are many requests and many people who come before him who need aid. One example that Jesus gives is that in the days of Elijah, there were many widows who needed aid, but God sent Elijah to that one specific widow. Why? Well, we can see that she praised God. That story was told all throughout Israel's existence from that time on, and it inspired people to see the glory of God. That's what it really boils down to. God has a good plan for me and you. He is going to do what he is going to do to make sure that plan comes about. Sometimes that means we suffer as Christ himself suffered, but in the end, we cannot deny that the gift of Christ was good. By putting his son up there, he saved the world. In the same way, God delays that "instant gratification" because he 1) is not your genie, and, 2) because he loves you and everyone else, and he will do what he can to save the world. That is not sitting back and watching.

You assume that without knowing God's knowledge, God's will and without the wisdom of God. Where is your evidence? What makes you think God isn't involved with every intricate of our affairs and His universe? God is involved with every affairs of ours and well aware of every creature He created. He holds our very lives and our affairs in His Hands. He isn't inattentive to any single creature of His whether big or small. You think this universe can hold itself from crashing the heavens unto our earth? The universe cannot hold itself and isn't the one holding it together. Without God guarding His universe and without God sustaining it, it cannot survive and will crash down. And I have the evidence and believe in it.
