It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, the fact is that only those who believe in and love Him will get His attention; if you don't believe in a God, or you choose to run from and disobey Him, He's not going to force you to believe in Him or waste His time with someone who isn't going to listen

But many third world nations (in Africa especially) are not low on Christians, on the contrary. And yet they are worse off than places with higher non-Christian populations.
What determines whether or not someone will listen?
Also, if God is omnipotent, shouldn't he be able to convince anyone?
Well, humans couldn't possible imagine all that God has in store for anyone in as bad conditions as people in Africa, and those who remain faithful will be blessed infinate-fold in heaven, but it's just not our place to question God on what a job He's doing

Well, obviously it's the persons decision to listen...
But He chose to leave it up to us, he wouldn't be a good God if he went around forcing people to believe in Him, nobody would have a free will
How can there be variations in infinity?
Even if the suffering of nations goes on for centuries or millenia?
But what determines that decision?
But if God is omnipotent, couldn't he convince people while still maintaining their free will?
I think you saw my point -_-
Now, this is just my personal opinion, but I believe that the rapture (as seen in Left Behind) will be not so far away
Well, if you choose to accept Him, then He will speak to you, but you have to willing to listen
Yes, he could, but still, he is letting us do it ourselves, why this is, don't ask me
I'm making a different one. How can someone be given a greater reward than another if they are both infinitely rewarded?
But what decides whether or not a person is willing?
So there is reason to question God.
If God made say, ten different people and created precisely equal factors of life for each of them, the outcome for all of them would be the same. If he is omnipotent, there is no chaotic element beyond his control that determines whether or not a person goes to heaven or hell.
I never said that...Did I?
The person decides whether or not a person is willing
True, there isn't but he chooses to let it be, to give us a choice
Why would God make miracles for some people who are well-off and not others who are in desperate need?
If God does not intercede to help those that suffer, how can he make miracles?
I suppose you edited it out.
Did God not make the lame man walk, or the blind man see?
None of his posts say that he edited them, so uh no.
But you still get to choose. You can choose to break a law, but in the end, you'll more than likely have to suffer the consequences for it.
