A viewer writes, “I thought you would find this writing interesting by Tom Montalk: ‘Interesting thing to ponder: what’s stronger, military might or divine power? The obvious answer is divine power. But then you look at history: 1) 10-20 million Christians killed by the Soviets; 2) 1000s of Christians killed by ISIS in the Middle East this past decade alone; 3) 100s of thousands of Christian children during the Crusades headed to Jerusalem only to be killed or sold into slavery on their way; 4) Always that good Christian family in the news who lost everything in a storm or earthquake or flood. You would think, based on this, that God clearly favors communists and Muslims and natural disasters. Besides, why should divinity favor Christians? What about all the other religions? But millions of communists, Muslims, and Jews have died as well over the centuries. Is there any class of people that’s consistently protected by the divine against military might? You could go back to the Old Testament and the Israelites and what was done for them, which if true, brings up the question of why back then and not since? Yet there’s no doubt that tyrannies and armies have risen and fallen and, in the end, spirituality and religion has endured. So spirit has the last laugh, but was it a Pyrrhic victory considering the millions lost? Or do we place too much value on life and comfort, and death, torture, and slavery isn’t that big of a deal in the eyes of eternity? There are also countless anecdotes of individuals and small groups of people being saved by supernatural intervention. Mysterious strangers helping them only to disappear without a trace, or voices telling them where to seek shelter, or the very laws of physics being bent to keep them from dying. And we have key people being guided by supernatural influences to exert their position/authority to help many other people. So certain individuals matter at certain times enough to get major intervention. But what’s missing is collective, massive, open divine intervention against military physical force, especially in the last 1000 years, let alone modern times. That hasn’t happened to my knowledge, unless it’s been covered up. And because of that, the USSR could kill up to 20 million Christians because it had the military might to do so, and because, for whatever reason, divine power doesn’t prevent collective events.'” His first question is: “Is divinity unable to [prevent collective events]? Then it’s not omnipotent.” What is Creator’s Perspective?
