Is there a God in Heaven?

What happens after we die?

Does everything just end?

Or, is there something that comes after this life?

 

 

Who hasn’t asked themselves these questions?

Equally plausible is many have never given it a thought.

In this compelling video, Dennis Prager deals with the issue of the afterlife head on.

This is one I’ve always found interesting, the most ardent believers in God and an after life if given the choice would take the next plane to get there.

 

 

So many books and treatises have been written on this topic, it’s mind-boggling. 

Uses any search engine and it will become very clear.

One question I’ve had, would a just and loving God have permitted Catholic priests to abuse their alter boys?

 

There appears to be an equal number of articles written to support the concept or to deny the existence.

 

 

My question, if God were all that powerful, why does he allow for protracted wars, the death, suffering and injuries both physical and mental to persist?

I’m dealing with this topic at more of a layman’s guide and not that of those who have spent a lifetime dealing with this concept.

Why for instance to Muslim Jihadists prefer dying during their commission of jihad?

Is Allah, their God so much different from the God most Americans choose to believe?

It would seem that most who consider themselves scholars of Islam and the promise of 72 virgins in the afterlife scoff at this concept.

If so, are Muslims being lied to by the verses in the Qur’an?

This topic is not one to laugh about, but on this topic I frequently do!

Some believe in the teachings of Charles Darwin from his book, “The Origin of the Species,” while most people don’t.

Almost 160 years after Charles Darwin publicized his groundbreaking theory on the development of life, Americans are still arguing about evolution.

In spite of the fact that evolutionary theory is accepted by all but a small number of scientists, it continues to be rejected by many Americans.

In fact, about one-in-five U.S. adults reject the basic idea that life on Earth has evolved at all.

Charles Darwin, British naturalist, 1878. His most famous work, The Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, was published in 1859.  He waited twenty years to publish it.

 

Are you among the few who believe in Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species? (Source)

And roughly half of the U.S. adult population accepts evolutionary theory, but only as an instrument of God’s will.

I consider myself an agnostic who prays to God and Jesus many times a day and when I go to sleep at night.

 

 

After studying “Religions of the World ” the most difficult course I had ever taken I go with what Dr. Strickland taught us.

Organized religion is man’s way of a the unknown which tends to make the believer more comfortable with his personal lot on earth.

Thus, we deify the unknown.

This of course led to more church dogma and if the individual want’s a box seat in heaven, he tithes more.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Last October I was heading home from a hour long diabetes management class at a local hospital. It was actually a one-on-one session with a registered nurse who was suppose to help people like myself better control their diabetes through diet and exercise. Instead, she told me that since I had first been diagnosed as a Type II Diabetic in my early 40’s that my pancreas was now functioning on the level of an 80 year old. She also said that now that I have hit my mid-50’s that my body was starting to go down hill with each passing year but that I still needed about 160 grams of carbohydrates a day to keep my sugar under control. (Her advice, especially about the condition of my pancreas, was later refuted by my doctor, who regretted sending me to that class!) But on that particular day I could only stare back at this woman with an incredulous mixture of scorn and pity-especially for anyone else who might be subjected to her brand of hopelessness- because I left there feeling terrible. Although I drove carefully back home that day, my mind was not exactly on the road but echoed with the negative words spoken over me by this woman whose attitude had been so careless and indifferent in regards to my feelings, I was still feeling depressed when I rolled up and stopped at a back roads crossroad not far from home. I looked both ways and saw a car coming to my right which seemed to be cruising along so I decided to waited for it to pass. I was just about to step on the gas again when all of a sudden a large dump truck came roaring passed me from the left. Where it came from I do not know. I never saw the truck. But God did. I drove the rest of the way home, partly in shock at what had just happened, but also praising God for He surely is our help in times of trouble! Since that day, I have been praising God more often in the storm of this life and also managing my diabetes a lot better too! I guess what I am trying to say is that not only do I worship the faithful and only true God of the Universe, Jesus Christ, Who died for me at Calvary, but He alone gives me the strength and the peace I need in this lost and fallen world. He is the faithful and true God Who offers us redemption without requiring us to do anything but accept what the Living Water He offers. Himself.
    “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is God’s working power unto salvation for deliverance from eternal death to everyone who believes with a personal trust and a confident surrender and a firm reliance, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Gentile).”
    Romans 1:16

    Unlike most questions we face, this one is what we’ll all get some sort of an answer to, sooner or later.
