Hrm. This isn’t quite a criticism of Beth’s opinion, but the chain of reasoning
God doesn’t do what I want
God doesn’t care about me
I hate God.
seems to be what is to be human. However, we cannot say that all specific instances of God-hating come from this chain of reasoning, even though this chain of reasoning likely affects all human beings. There are other chains of reasoning in the human brain that can give “I hate God” as a result.
I think what Eerie was specifying was that this woman’s negative emotion was specifically coming from a faulty understanding of evil, not from this. Therefore it’s more likely to be a chain of reasoning that looks like this:
Evil is [something I do not want]
God does this [thing I do not want]
God is the source of evil
I hate God.
You’ll notice that these two chains of reasoning are similar, since they are focused on what the person wants, but the difference is huge. The first chain of reasoning at the top of this post reflects selfishness, and the second chain of reasoning reflects an intellectual misunderstanding of God. Someone who is under faulty reasoning is different than a flippant narcissist, and must be dealt with accordingly.
This is a common error in Christian thinking, to apply a universal chain of sin nature reasoning to all unbelievers and all forms of anti-Christian thought, and thus assume that there is one method to spread the Gospel that works in all cases. I am not saying that Beth has become a victim of assuming that one way to spread the Gospel is correct, but I am cautioning against this because it is a very sneaky error. The sin nature is not a solved game and has a limitless number of forms. Yes, the universal sin nature reasoning chain one applied to the person is correct and you are absolutely right - it is truly driving their actions because they are a sinner. However, the Christian who does this is not paying attention to the person and what they actually want to discuss with them.
And when said Christian does that, they are not really loving them and being rather rude.
