    Back in , Jerry Garcia sang a song which captures the feelings of the closed door and the end of a dream: “I was in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time/ I was sayin’ the right things, but I must have used the wrong line/ I was on the right trip, but I must have used the wrong car/ My head is in the right place, but I’m wondering what it’s good for.”. Reflect on these words straight from the mouth of God since all scripture is God-breathed and inspired by God Himself (II Tim ). God says about those who are saved that they are: sealed for the day of redemption, guaranteed for what is to come, promised that you are His possession, have a deposit for an eternal inheritance, an inheritance.

    Luke ESV / helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world.   Those who offered verses like Romans or said that “God has a plan,” while well-intentioned, felt painful. One relative gave the “If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger” line.

    'God is Dead' (German: „Gott ist tot“ (help info); also known as The Death of God) is a widely quoted statement by German philosopher Friedrich che used the phrase to express his idea that the Enlightenment had eliminated the possibility of the existence of r, proponents of the strongest form of the Death of God theology have used the phrase in a literal sense. 11 It had all the glory of God and glittered like some precious jewel of crystal-clear diamond.. 12 Its wall was of a great height and had twelve gates; at each of the twelve gates there was an angel, and over the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel;. 13 on the east there were three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates.

If I were God, I'd end all the Pain is a brief look at the sobering issue of evil. Dickson clarifies the problem by breaking the issue down: In one sense, the Problem of Evil is a challenge to belief in a Good God and in another way it is a profoundly personal issue that causes many people much reflection and angst/5(21).

John Dickson in his book If I Were God I'd End All the Pain looks honestly at our questions. He looks briefly at explanations provided by other religions before If I Were God back to what the Bible itself says about God, justice and suffering. And what he find there is an encouragement to anyone honestly looking for answers to the problem of pain.

In If I Were God, I'd End All The Pain, John Dickson, a popular Christian author in Australia and the U.K., looks honestly at the question of suffering, and provides some compelling answers. He examines the alternative explanations for suffering provided by Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Atheism, before turning to what the Bible says about God, justice and : Matthias Media.

In this short book, John Dickson looks honestly at these questions, and provides some compelling answers. He looks briefly at the alternative explanations for suffering provided by Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Atheism, before turning to what the Bible 4/5(1). A closer look at sin; rejecting God and his rule.

“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you” (Genesis – 18).

Job's pain is not the pain of the executioner's whip but the pain of the surgeon's scalpel. The removal of the disease of pride is the most loving thing God could do, no matter what the cost. Remember the words of the Lord: Better to suffer the excruciating pain of a gouged out eye than to.

“Bear one another’s burdens, the Bible says. It is a lesson about pain that we all can agree on. Some of us will not see pain as a gift; some will always accuse God of being unfair for allowing by: All through the book, Job had been hoping for an audience with God.

He wanted some answers directly from the Almighty. The explanations from his friends connected his suffering with some sins (known or unknown) that he had committed. Job wants God to straighten this. One reason God may have increased the woman’s pain in childbearing was to give us an object lesson of the pain which God would now endure in order to bring forth spiritual children.

His own Son, the second Person of the Trinity, would have to go to the cross and suffer not only the physical pain of the crucifixion, but also the indescribable.

WHAT DO YOU THINK. - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. Romans “There is therefore now no condemnation.” The pain for us is purifying, not punitive.

“God has not destined us for wrath” (1 Thessalonians ). We die of disease like all men, not necessarily because of any particular sin — that’s really important. We die. God wants to have a relationship with all of us.

He wants to be the number one person we come to when we run into problems, when we are scared, or need someone to talk to. God gives us the tools. quotes from Jim Morrison: 'People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all.

People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with. Join students from OVER 90 countries that attend our online classes.

Here's the opening live Q&A session that launched our online video training. Almost a million people have sat. In the end I discovered that His instructions were meant to save me mountains of heartache, pain, and expense.

If we could only learn to obey, we would be fulfilled, happy, and blessed in every way. John H. Sammis’s famous hymn says it well: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way.

A New Heaven and a New Earth. 21 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” [] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look. It was a terrible end, but it was the end, and greater carnage was avoided. Let’s be clear about this stricter and more communal view of justice in the Bible. The Canaanite pagan communities would surely intermarry with the Israelites, and God’s people were in danger of succumbing to their sexual perversions and religious degradation.

God comforts victims with his Word, the Bible. The Bible assures us that God cares for us and that he feels for us when we suffer. (Isaiah ; 1 Peter 5: 6, 7) It also reveals his promise of a time when natural disasters will not happen anymore.

—See “ Bible verses to comfort victims of natural disasters.” God helps victims by means of his worshippers. Psalm “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” By definition, a refuge is a safe place.

When the Bible describes God as our refuge, it is saying that God is our.by Matt Slick 12/12/ It is often asked why is there suffering in the world if God is all powerful and loving. Why doesn't He stop it? Can He or is He weaker than we think?

Suffering can fall into three simple categories: emotional, mental, and physical suffering. The expression "God is Good" is said in many ways in many places throughout the verses of the Bible. The central theme of scripture is to glorify the holiness of God and the significance of following his teachings.
