You're overreacting. It's not some kind of personal grudge or anything. It's strictly business. Sometimes things needed to be destroyed so that newer, greater things can blossom. The world is no exception.

The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are arguably one of the most famous Biblical figures other then Satan and God themselves, though they are not necessarily entirely fueled by malice, acting as divine harbingers of the End Times.

Overview

These four powerful beings embody four apocalyptic forces that are said to be granted authority over the world until the Day of Judgement when God himself shall manifest and create a new world free from all sin.

The Horsemen of the Apocalypse, alongside the Antichrist and The Beast, were popular figures in doomsday writings and continue to fascinate many, though they are seen more as symbolic figures in modern belief than literal beings. The beings in question either serve God, Satan, or Death depending on the version chosen.

Characteristics

The Four Horsemen will travel across the globe as they leave a trail of destruction and despair in their wake from the forces that they embody. The Horsemen have a very slanted view of humanity, and some see themselves as just bringing out the evil that is already in humans. Both War and Famine, for example, have said humans "only need a little push" in order to do horrible things, and both have shown a level of disgust and contempt toward how easily corruptible humans are, and what they can do. 

The Christian apocalyptic vision is that the four horsemen are to set a divine apocalypse upon the world as harbingers of the Last Judgment.

The Horsemen are for all intents and purpose unstoppable, however, even though they can be defeated by some other mighty force, they merely rise up once more to finish their task. To truly defeat these beings is to reassemble the four seals that summoned the Horsemen in the first place.

Quotes

We are the consequence of your sins. When God created the world, He had created it perfect. But when their father and mother ate the fruit of the tree of death, they brought Sin into the world, and along with it came Pestilence, War, Famine, Pollution, Division, Destruction, Oppression, Conflict and Death.
Conquest to Carl Black.
Humanity is so sickening. They've only been around for a very short time and they've done so much bullshit in the world. They wonder why we exist, when the answer lies in themselves. We are the consequence of sin and we bring the wrath of God on you.
Grim Reaper.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Apocalypse. Today the sun will darken, demons have walked the earth and my four horsemen will ride the earth bringing the wrath of God.
Death.
