Why would God engineer a nations culture to just condemn them for what he created?
God has engineered Saudi Arabia as everything is to his divine will. A charitable Muslim doctor who'd spend their life doing good in the name of the lord does so in the name of their lord, if God can see into our hearts then he must see our intentions and if they are good then why punish for what that person has done in the name of the lord. If someone got my name wrong but that person loved me I would love them back, if God not that forgiving?

You people are underestimating the power of GOD!
Did you forget how Paul was the opposite of a Christian killing as many as he could?
God can set anyone on "Strait Street" (Acts 9:11)!
"All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away" (Isaiah 64:6).
"Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one" (Job 14:4)!
So why water baptize yourselves and pretend you're eating His body and drinking His blood "with your hands" (Acts 17:25) calling it "righteousness?"
Therefore it doesn't matter how much "good" you do, when Jesus said
"None is good but the Holy Ghost"
"...there is none good but One, that is, God” (Mark 10:18)!
Consequently, until you "join to His Spirit" (I Corinthians 6:17) When ((("HE))) baptizes you with the Holy Ghost" (John 1:33) there is nothing "good" about you since you are still "DEAD in your trespasses and sins" (Ephesians 2:1)!
Good works called "Religion" that's produced by man are "undefiled before God" (James 1:27) that even an Atheist can do but they aren't "produced by God"
"Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by [your] might, nor by [your] power, but (((BY MY SPIRIT,))) saith the LORD of hosts" (Zechariah 4:6)!

National culture is engineered by the people who make up that nation. You have not a shred of evidence to claim that "God engineers a nation's culture to just condemn them." On the contrary, God promises that "all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him [Abraham]" Genesis 18:18. However, He also distinguishes between nations that are sinful and "the righteous nation that keeps the truth" Isaiah 1:4 & 26:2.
You seem to be confused by "the divine will" and free will. Just because God allows things to happen does not mean He approves of those things! Yes, God sees our hearts and knows our intentions, and all who seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness will be blessed. But that has nothing to do with whatever nation you were born into. The good news of salvation has been sent out into all the Earth, and peoples from every nation, language and tribe are found in Heaven, thanking God for their salvation. Read Revelation 7:9-17 & 22:1-3 where the leaves of the Tree of Life are "for the healing of the nations".

The most just sent every nation a prophet, messenger; what they did afterwards was up to them.

Because of idolatry The King of the Universe tears down what He built up. Why degrade yourself by worshiping a created thing, rather than the Creator of all things?
The only reason why your city still stands is because there are at least ten good people still left in it, and animals God loves.
You should feel the need to search for God like a dying man in a desert seaches for water.
Why sit there until you die?
If you remain where you are, you must perish.
If you go to Jesus you will live. If you sit in sullen dispair no one can pity you when your ruin comes; but if you were to die SEEKING MERCY (as IF that were possible) you would be the object of universal sympathy.
You know others who were saved by believing in Him (your own friends and neighbors); so why not you? Why not taste and see that the Lord is merciful?
To perish is awful. We assure that if you seek Him, you will find Him, for He casts out none who come to Him. You shall not perish if you trust Him. On the contrary; you shall find treasure; eternal treasure, that will be stored up for you beyond this life.
We preach to the living even where the vultures gather because we must. Because we know the truth, and the truth will set you free. Because we too were about to perish when we got up and sought mercy for ourselves. We preach because God has ordained us to do just that. A sacred responsibility.

The culture that God created is the one that's in the Bible. The Kingdom of God, His way of doing things and being right. (Metthew 6:33)

What example do you have of God engineering a nations culture and condemning them for what He created?
God does not engineer national cultures.
He teaches His true religion to the world, especially by His son Jesus Christ.
What He does condemn are lies and sinful actions and thoughts and He does not create them - people are given a choice between good and evil and can appeal to God in Jesus' name to reject evil and do good.
>> God has engineered Saudi Arabia as everything is to his divine will.
I do not believe He engineered Saudi Arabia. I think He allowed Muhammad the founder of Islam to promote his religion centered on himself in Saudi Arabia, which was then promoted in many nations.
But this does not mean God engineered everything about it - He does not engineer the evil and bad parts about this culture, which result from human choice by Satanic influence.
>> A charitable Muslim doctor who'd spend their life doing good in the name of the lord does so in the name of their lord
In Islam it is also defined as good to die in the battle for promotion of Islam, or kill enemies of Islam, who criticized or fought against it.
Islam does not teach to forgive people for their faults, unlike Jesus Christ did teach to forgive each other, to be forgiven by God too.
Or in islamic culture it is okay to divorce your wive by repeating three times that you divorce her before witnesses, while in Christian faith you should not be divorced, except in case of adultery.
>> then why punish for what that person has done in the name of the lord.
Hitler claimed to be doing Lord's work by killing Jews and people he considered racially inferior.
But a person can claim to be doing Lord's work, but lie - because he can use God's name for personal means, to do evil.
Or mentally deranged parents can try to kill their children, because they claim God told them to do it, despite God teaching to not murder, and they rather listened to Satan pretending to them to be God.
Do you really think God should not punish such evil promoted in His name?
