When I think of all the suffering at St. Jude Hospital and in the world, it makes me wonder, like so many do, why do I worship a God that would allow such cruelty?

To Styrker: Often times it is not for us to understand why God does something, but rather to trust in Him, for his judgement is sufficient. However in this case the reasons are apparent. This story is one of the oldest in all of the scriptures and has provided wisdom and guidance to untold numbers of people who have experienced similar life events.

The Devil challenged the faith of Job before God and God allowed the Devil to destroy Job's life to prove Job's faithfulness. Why would God have to prove anything to anyone, especially an innocent God fearing man? Is there any reward great enough to compensate for the losses that Job endured?

To Beauregard: Are you willing to experience the life of Job for Christ's sake? Would you take a fatal bullet for Christ's sake? Many people around the world for many centuries have done just that in opposition to the laws created by some very insane people. Following the Bible is superior to any man made laws.

Which is more right; to follow the Bible or to follow a law that is contrary to the Bible?

To Sticks: In some countries a person cannot be enriched by a lawsuit. Injuries and disabilities are covered, but punitive penalties are paid to the government. Laws that are contrary to scripture should be repealed. Without laws the world of non-Christians would live in chaos.

Which is the better approach to attracting people to Christianity? By using force and creating laws that turn people into criminals because they sin differently than you, or allowing people to live in a free society to live as they choose and approaching them with love and example?

To Tito: The last words of Christ on the cross was "Forgive them ...". I would think that would be his greatest wish and prayer. It is only after you forgive someone can you earnestly seek to help them.

If Christ could have his one wish, what would it be?

To Digger: The Bible is so full of the knowledge of life that it is impossible for anyone to retain all its wisdom in one reading. Although the words never change your perspective does. As you mature in life and in wisdom the Bible will continue to serve you in meeting the challenges you encounter.

How come it is that some people is always a readin the Bible over and over? Ain't one time good enough? The words nor the meanin don't change, or do they?

To Beaver: You can follow Satan and get the food now, and the instant gratification of yet another sin, or you can wait on the Lord and be fed with a blessing. A person can go a long time without food and a lot of other things. It takes a strong person of character to do the right thing in times of peril.

If a person has no means to obtain food, is it wrong for them to steal food from the grocery store?

To Seth: A personal relationship with Christ is much more than the concept of having hope or no hope. A personal relationship with Christ involves the whole person; their every need, want, desire and hope for happiness and the reduction of suffering. Eternal life in heaven is the gift of God when you are reborn into the spirit of Christ. For those who have been reborn into this spirit, the reality of it is undeniable.

Because no one has returned from the grave to verify that what we believe about the afterlife is true; the question becomes "is a false hope better than no hope" if what we believe is in fact not true.

To Bags: The Lord chooses the day of your death not you or your doctor.
12-18-2013 2:25:59 AM CST
If I tell the doctor "Do not resuscitate" is that the same as assisted suicide? Is it biblically wrong? If I'm almost home, please don't stop me.

You can be married and not live together; just as you can love your parents, but not able to live with them.
12-15-2013 4:29:33 AM CST
If not divorce, what then if a person is in an impossible situation?
12-15-2013 4:26:20 AM CST
To Paulina: About divorce, you can cut off your arm and still live, but not comfortably. You can be paralyzed and still live, but not comfortably. You would always love and remember when you were whole, and this would be baggage you would take with you for the rest of your life.
12-15-2013 4:18:51 AM CST
Is divorce okay?

To Pinky: If a person is narcissistic toward you they will be narcissistic toward others as well. Anti-social behavior is easily identified if you know what to look for. Foregoing mental illness, a sincere Christian would not take advantage of anyone.

Does the Bible teach us how to know if a person loves us, or loves what we do for them? I enjoy being the provider rather than the dependent but sometimes I wonder if its me or my wealth that my companion loves.

To Bonk: I know you are very capable to neutralizing any abusive aggression you see, and you should, however before you put any extra effort into it, (you know 'the final touches') consider your consequences and most important the provocation that may have preceded the abuse. There are lawyers that have no respect for protectors like you. So be careful and be anonymous if possible. God will be on your side if you do the right thing.

Is it ok to smash someone I see abusing a woman or child?
