Why did God let bad things happen to the good person?

“Why does God let bad things happen to good people?”  Have you ever heard anyone ask that question?  Perhaps you have asked it.  We know that God is just and yet we see good people undergoing bad experiences.  How could a just God allow this to happen? Read the rest of this entry

The lost years of Jesus

When Jesus was 12 years old Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover.  When they returned home he stayed behind but they didn’t notice at first because they thought he was somewhere among the group they have traveled with.  It took them three days to discover he was gone and then return to Jerusalem to find him.

After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.  And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.  (Luke 2:46,47)

Did Jesus claim to be God?

There is disagreement as to whether Jesus was God.  Some who deny his deity say that he never claimed to be God.  The fact is Jesus said several times in the gospels that he was God.

If you begin reading the gospels, beginning with Matthew, you will come to a section known as the Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew 5-7.  He stated three times in this sermon that he was God.

What Jesus didn’t know

When God appeared to Moses in the burning bush he revealed his name to him.

Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?”

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.”
Exodus 3:13-15

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
