If God is in Control of everything, is He really Good?

I was asked the question recently, “If God is in Control of everything, is He really Good?” The timing of this question was poignant in my life because this past week we found out my daughter, who just graduated from high school, has cancer. She had a dark spot on her scalp and after the biopsy came back positive for melanoma, further testing was done, and she will have to go to U.C. Davis to have more if it removed, and possibly some lymph nodes removed. While the prognosis at this point seems to be optimistic, it would be natural for someone to ask God why.   Out of all of our children,...

If God created the universe, who created God?

One of the men attending our early Sunday morning apologetic class, Anthony, shared with me that someone actually asked him this specific question. We started watching the six week Greg Koukl DVD series on Tactics. At the end of the 2nd session, I made eight statements, or claims, that I wanted those attending to think about. The second one on my list was, “If God created the universe, who created God?” So when Anthony heard that one, it reminded him of someone asking him that question. This question has been around for a long time. What some of you may find interesting is that the response,...

Free Will

If God wants us all to follow and worship him, why didn’t he create us as such? *Your expected answer will be addressed in the next question. This is the 12th and 13th (see below) of 50 Questions Christian’s can’t answer   If you click on the link you will see my responses from on the first ten. Imagine you are able to create something that has mobility, processing ability, and can react, but does not have a free will. We call those kinds of things machines, computers, or robots. In the not too distant future we will have robots that will interact with families on a regular...

Poems and assassinations

God wants everyone to worship and follow him and, if they don’t, they burn in hell for all eternity. What does this type of attitude say about his character? By definition, he would be described as a tyrant. My wife told me my titles, 43 Questions Christian’s can’t answer, 42 Questions Christian’s can’t answer, 41 Questions… are boring.  So I changed it. This question deals with unbelief, choices and consequences, authority, and love and it is the 10th one on the list of 50. If we were to define God as an all powerful, all knowing, creator of the universe,...

44 Questions Christian’s can’t answer

Why do innocent children have to suffer with terminal diseases such as cancer? What part of ‘God’s plan’ is this exactly? The question of evil and why there is suffering in this world is something we all struggle with, especially if you believe, (as I do), in an all knowing, and all powerful God. Romans 8:28 explains that everything works together for the good of those who love Him and are called by Him. Well that sounds great, but to the unbeliever who has lost a parent, friend, or child to cancer it does little or nothing to comfort them. R. E. Pucket has a list of difficult questions you...
