Here is a question to those who believe in God. Every one of us is subjected to despair in life at some point in our life despite God being there in our lives. Is God a bully?

Regarding the performance of religious duties, the Holy Prophet has given the following advice:
"Religion is easy, but any one who exerts himself too much in religious devotions will get overcome by it; so you should just act rightly, and keep to the mean, and be of good cheer, and ask for Allah's help morning, evening, and a part of the night." (Bukhari.)
If a person commits a sin then repents, Allah will accept his repentance:
your Lord has written (prescribed) Mercy for Himself, so that if any of you does evil in ignorance, and thereafter repents and does righteous good deeds (by obeying Allah), then surely, He is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful [al-Anaam 6:54 interpretation of the meaning]
Allah is Generous and Kind, He multiplies the reward for good deeds and forgives bad deeds, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, narrating the words of his Lord:
Allah has decreed hasanaat (good deeds) and sayiaat (bad deeds), then He explained that.

I am an atheist and so in terms of your question I am not qualified to answer. However, I take the liberty to do it.Excuse me. We atheists do not have this dilemma. It has been created by the belivers . We believe that we ourselvles are responsible for our lapses and we are also for our good deeds. Even if we do not believe in god wefirmly believe that we have to bring kingdom of god on the earth with our efforts. This givers us strength and also saves us from blaming some hypothetical entity for our lapses.

It is not true. We pray to god daily. And god listen everytime. The only thing is that if he does not agree with you then he wont reply to your prayer. and if agrees with your prayer, then he will definitely listen to you.

Great question gem : since this life is short duration and is meant for test of human beings there will be trials and tribulations depending on one's own capacity , god does not test human beings beyond their capacities. though outwardly it looks bad but deeper this is for sake of mankind . god tests whether we retain our faith with patience in testing times . those who have faith remain patience and are rewarded and those who think that this is only life feel unhappy and distressed . just like a classroom where a student who works hard prospers and who do not fail .
god is not a bully . he created good and bad to test us . death is invetible whether through this cause or that or tsunami . god gives absolute justice on day of judgement to every one . he will give perfect judgement and none can compalin .

There is sin in the world. Jesus died for our sins on the cross and came alive from the grave. There is victory through Him. We know God through faith in Him.

Breaking the cycle of rebirths

Man has only one physical birth and only one physical death

Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Hebrews 9: 27, 28

Rebirth is spiritual in nature. It is also called regeneration, new birth, being born again or being born from above. It is an act on the fallen human nature by the Spirit of God, leading to a change in the persons whole outlook and life. ...more
