Wow for such a post, and what a question!

One might wonder where to begin to unravel the human mindset in revealing Almighty God. Yet, Almighty God did provide that answer, in revealing His Son, Yeshua HaMashiach, as Savior.

But let us consider the later part of your post first: "I think god does shirk his responsibility by putting the burden of spreading faith (true faith) upon human beings. Besides that there is a lot of illogical, absurd, unnecessary and even dangerous stuff in every faith or belief system. We human beings have had enough sufferings because of this illogical etc. stuff. If god is almighty and all-knowing then he should create something that cannot be misused, misrepresented, falsely interpreted etc."

As a mere mortal man, I would have little or no inclination to understand your desire to live life in any moral way, for we are told in the Holy Bible that after the fall of the original man in the garden of Eden, we have no such ability for such understanding. But in that same Holy Bible, we are given the means to start. Almighty God is the Giver of the means, and the Provider of the answer. When a man or woman lives under His commandments, the means to live for Him are given and provided by Him. It is only illogical when one moves outside of His will and purpose for each and every one of us.

The difference, the only difference between a believer and a non-believer is belief, or not. Belief is the key. The means for belief is provided for by Almighty God, first in giving any man, woman, or child as place in the soul to receive what the WORD of the LORD provides. Second, what the WORD of the LORD provides is the Truth, the Truth of Who Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) is, of His message of the love Almighty God provides by sending Jesus, His only Begotten Son, to the people of Israel and those who will believe as His messenger, and to be the redeemer of our salvation by dying on the cross for our sins, and for the justification of our faith, He was raised from the dead. Therein lies the question, the willingness to be this central act of His love as the basis for your faith – do you desire to believe?

Only in a mortal man's confusion does this send anyone into a sense of misunderstanding, for which we must rely upon the WORD of the LORD as found in the Holy Bible. Without its being the manual of the revelation of Almighty God, the illogical suffering you mention the world having in this life could never be solved logically.

Now, I personally would not call every non-believer a rogue, for I was once a non-believer, even though I was brought up in the American church setting. But not until Jesus Christ intervened in my life after I finally relented and asked Him to do so, did I come to a place of understanding of His condemnation for my former unbelief. Therefore, I was a rogue when I did not believe; but He saved me from my unbelief, and provided for my faith in the Holy Bible to believe in Him as Jesus Christ, my Savior and my LORD.

How does my Almighty God deal with non-believers? In His judgment for unbelief, He provides from His vast and unlimited storehouse of grace and mercy the opportunity to believe, but the non-believer needs to change his/her mind to believe. He says, "believe in the LORD Jesus Christ, and be saved."It's just that simple; He provides the rest, and the peace, that comes from that very simple act.
