Is God fair when he allows judgment to fall upon His people? God told the prophet Ezekiel that he was to warn Israel that because they were following the gods of the nations around them and ignoring the statutes and laws that God provided, they would incur the consequences of their disobedience. Atheists accuse God of genocide, but God is simply giving the people what they ask. They do not want God to be involved in their lives, and because of that, He withdraws His hand of protection and blessing. Much of this applies to today’s society and we are repeating the mistakes of the Israelites.
