By Sherbien Dacalanio

I have always been so confused and so full of endless questions. Why have I been born? What’s my purpose in life? I always thought that my life was worthless. I wished I was never born. When I’m alone, the call of death always lingered in my mind. And it became worse to the point that deep inside my mind I started questioning God. If He is a merciful God, then why did He create hell for sinners? Why did He care enough to create us and then let us suffer if we commit sin? Why did He give us free will and when we fail we are damned? Isn’t he making remote controlled objects out of us?
