    A Loving God vs Pain & Suffering

    Shalom All, Do you run into the same objections of "Why does God allow this or that?" or perhaps "How can a God of love exist when this or that happens?". Well, I think this matter needs to be tackled head on. Too often the responses some Christians can give, if unprepared, can cause non-believers to run further from God. Yes, God does allow pain and suffering. Yes, God is to be feared before loved. And let's not forget exactly WHO is responsible for much of the suffering in this world - not God, not satan, but us. There are three short stories to explain the above principles. Hopefully they will be of use to you as well should you ever run into this difficult topic. Please take your time (if you have it) when reading each story as, although they are simple to read, they have been written to be thought on. faithandtheword.com/book-a/idb/heart/roots/ Love & Shalom

    Shalom! I thank Yahweh every day for: An able body and mind A time and area of calm A loving wife A home with food and water The means to earn a living What blessings he bestows upon us each day! It's important to not take any of the above for granted. Their all very, very special blessings. HalleluYah! Love & Shalom
  3. Shalom Equippers, When we feel far from God, and there is no obvious reason, you should assume that you are being tested and refined. God may want to prove your heart to Him, or prove something to you. Stay strong. the Bible is your anchor point in these stormy seas. Your love for God and trust in his faithfulness must be paramount at times like these. He won't abandon you if you fail to do this well, don't worry. But whatever you do, don't give in to the darker side of you that is clawing at you to pull you down and away from God. He sees everything, he knows everything. If it is happening, there is surely a beautiful reason behind it that a human mind cannot possibly fathom. You may see why tomorrow, you may see why in 10 years, you may never see why. Just stay true to God, follow the Messiah's ways and trust in God's wisdom. It won't be totally applicable to you, as it's mainly written for non-believers, but I think you may find real peace in reading these three stories, which deal with understanding God when things seem to be falling apart. faithandtheword.com/book-a/idb/heart/roots/ He loves you! Love & Shalom

    Proof of Global Flood?

    Shalom Sojourner, A great site! Thank you. Although for a non-believer it might be a bit "Christian" no? I was trying to make it a bit less bias and just highlight the global flood proof before dealing with discussing God, if that makes sense. Love & Shalom

    Proof of Global Flood?

    Shalom Cletus, Have you seen this page? https://faithandtheword.com/idb/mind/real-argument/global-flood/investigation/fifth-area/ Is this what you mean? Love & Shalom
  12. Shalom, I don't know if this is what you want to hear, but I think there are two possibilities. Possibility 1 - It will happen. Consider how old Abraham was when he moved to Canaan. Consider hoe Jacob wasn't told that Joseph was okay for many years. Consider the age of Moses when he was called. We assume that God communicated with such prophets daily but the Bible doesn't say that. It seems that all of the patriachs and prophets went years and years between getting direction or word from Abba. It could be intentional testing to see how you fair in your Faith. Be strong. Possibility 2 - There is a wall. Did you feel that God asked you to confront an issue or resolve something and you haven't? Sometimes we can be left at a stalemate of communication. When we don't listen to Him, why do we expect Him to listen to us? From the last time you felt the Spirit with you, assess the changes in your life between that time and now that may have lead to this state. If you feel a conviction burning within you, face it. Be brave. I have been in the same scenario under both possibilities. Under the former, I had to wait for direction of what to do in serving Him. Under the latter, I had to dedicate more of my mind to His Word and clean up my act some more. I hope some of these ideas and everyone else's comments here help you in some way and you find some peace. Love & Shalom
