In “The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas” no matter how angry they get about the child they still understand why it exist. The child strongly represents Christ, but what if its God that walked and not the non-believers as mentioned earlier. God knew that his son was going to die when he sent him to. The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19).…
