God is to blame for the holocaust. Do you agree? Some people would agree with the statement because if god is suppose to be all powerful, benevolent (all loving) and decides what to happen yet he let this happen. So how can he? During holocaust over 6 million people were killed including other races. How can he let his own people to be killed? Didn’t god see Jews being blamed for the lost of WW1? Couldn’t he feel like they did while there were persecuted? Couldn’t he let his own people stand up for themselves rather than being scared and not knowing what to do? Furthermore one Jewish prisoner from the concentration camps during holocaust had said, “If there is a god, he will have to beg for forgiveness!” this shows that many Jews were angry at god as he let his own people suffer without food for many days, being called a disease and being treated as a number rather than human so they stopped believing him. Other people would disagree with the statement because god was testing people’s faith as the bible says, “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trail, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which god has promised to those who love him.” This shows that people who are patient, god will save and protect them in whatever situation they are but they have to maintain their faith in him. If they had maintained their patients and faith then they will be rewarded as god has promised them! Maybe during Holocaust most people had lost their beliefs on god and started blaming him, so god might have stopped his wish of saving them since they had no faith him. In my opinion I disagree with the statement because Hitler was the one who started the Holocaust. He started the Holocaust because he hated the Jews for everything; he disliked their politics, art and social life. So he blamed Jews for the lost of World War one.
