Discussion in 'Your Religion & Spiritual Corner' started by Cara, Nov 2, 2010.
If you had just one question, right now, this moment to ask God............what would you ask?
Who shot JFK!
Ahhhh good one Ted!
Why are so many wars fought and why do so many people die in the name of religion?
it would be a toss up between what is the purpose of the male pattern baldness gene and where one can get the best Mexican food in the universe...
[size=10pt]WHY?[/size](this one I am dead serious about)
Why do you choose to remain invisible and not just show up like regular people do?
Have I disappointed you?
Wow! Jim............your response has brought tears to my eyes........not about the mexican food, lol, I love it too...........or male pattern baldness..........the best man in my life was bald and I miss him so much.......but the simpleness yet complexity of "why?" Yes, definate tears here.
Ahhh, Studio , you broke the rule............just one sweetie!
Intrepid............I have a strong faith, but you always make me think.
Lulu..........I ask that too.
"Am I going to heaven to be with you, and if not - what else do I have to do to MAKE SURE that I end up there".
Is there really a Rainbow Bridge?
You have to do nothing to end up in heaven Chris. Jesus already did it for you. That was His purpose on earth - to die for the sins of all mankind so that he who believes in Jesus will not perish, but will have eternal life.
I wish everyone could understand and believe that simple truth. As a matter of fact, to think that your works can get you to heaven is an afront to God. It denigrates the sacrifice Jesus has already made. HE has already provided the way to heaven; we are simply asked to believe that.
Think of it this way, Chris. Every time you ask what you have to do to get to heaven, God points to the cross and says: "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved."
God's answer to the 'why' questions?: Sin is in the world.
His solution?: Savior
Sigh. This thread is about questions, right? Not sermons. I already know the answer. 42.
Prima Donna, I understand this is truth for you but it is complete and utter fiction for me. I think we should stick to the question as asked by Cara.
My question would be; what is the purpose of pain?
My question: Why did Jesus have to die in such a horrible way? I mean, I understand WHY He died, but couldn't He have just ... I dunno ... been beheaded instead of beaten & humiliated & tortured?
I had to think about this. What question would I ask?
I dont believe I would ask any question. I think I would just thank him for his love and for being there to carry me and giving me the strength to go on when I am at my lowest. Gods love is amazing to me.
What should I do next?
Disagree in the sense of, that means then that I can go out and sin like crazy as much as I want to since simply believing Jesus died for my sins takes care of it all. I would have to think that he would tell me areas that I strongly need to work on.......or else.
