Does That Mean That God Exists, But Not Good Or Evil?

Hello Tim,

I: "If God was not on Hitler's side, then why would (S)He let him kill all the Jewish people he did?"

You (Tim): "it is apparent Phillip that God doesn't take sides but it is also apparent that the universe which would be by definition of God is constructed in such a way that consequences exist for acts of evil as well as acts that are good."

If God doesn't take sides, what about heaven and hell? Right and wrong? How do we know what is good or evil? What good is an evil that goes unpunished? We made up our right and wrong, who (what) is to say that we are right? Are we not just going about on our own personal vandettas, using power that isn't ours? ...by punishing someone for something that we say is wrong, although God, the Almighty, has not hindered their progress? I ask you, what right do we have to punish others without God's will? Is it not in our (human kind's) "The Ten Commandments", sent down from the heavens, "Thou Shalt NOT Kill"? If Hitler Kills, and, therefore, sins, are we (those against Hitler's regime) not sinning when we go to war, killing many (ours and hitler's), to stop him? I think the question is "Which is the greater sin?" and not "which is good, and which is evil?" That is not to say that I am against war. I am very much for it, and anything else helping the betterment of soceity in general.
