    If they were sinners in the previous birth how they are so nice in the present birth? My child is weak in a subject. Can you solve this problem?
    ==========================================================
    Ans) You think that a person is very good because of his nice gentle character. There are cheats who are very soft and nice. There are very good and sincere people with rough character. A soft person may be selfish and a rough person may be sacrificial. The Lord cares only for one bad quality, which is the selfishness. He neglects all the other good qualities. A selfish person with all good qualities is like a gold cup with salt water. We pay for the material in the cup and not for the cup. A cruel person with excellent sacrifice is like the earthern cup containing nectar. Lord Siva gave salvation to the hunter for his sacrifice but not to the selfish sacred priest. Thus we do not distinguish the real good and the real bad.

    The analysis of the Lord is completely practical and true and is completely different from our analysis. Regarding the problem of your child I advise you to stop worrying about your child. You worry about the work of the Lord and do not think about your problem. In such case your problem disappears in a fraction of a second spontaneously. As long as you do not put attention on your family and concentrate on the Lord’s work, the Lord will take the responsibility of your entire family and in such case the help to your family is unimaginable.
    If you concentrate on your family leaving the Lord, your problem will grow more and more. If you concentrate on the Lord and your problem equally, your problem gets partially solved. Now you have to choose one of these alternatives.

    peace,

    - so what of the individual who relies on the lord & his/her family become tragic victims anyway??

    - what of the TRUE Hindus that died on 9/11 while concentrating on their Lord??

    - I don't think anyone would focus on leaving the lord, but rather the Lord thru his/her lack of action may cause one to ponder if the Lord has EVER been focused!!!!!!!

    peace

    Bad things happen to good people because God allows these things to happen in order for people to prove whether they really love God or not.If you only have good things happen to you then how hard would it be to love God? You can only really prove your love during times of hardship then you will know who has real love and who has conditional love.

    Why would one have to "prove" their love to a God who knows "well what is in the hearts & minds" of his children??

    - shouldn't he/she know already if you love your God?

    "Bad things happen because GOD ALLOWS THESE THINGS TO HAPPEN IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO PROVE WHETHER THEY REALLY LOVE GOD OR NOT" - so this would include murder, Rape amongst other things which means your GOd is an unforgiving & unmerciless GOd and a GOd of Destruction as well as being a selfish God.......

    why would your God destroy what he/she made on the 6th day? (which he/she didn't call good) wouldn't that mean that there was a flaw in his/her creation??

    why would you have to tell your creation that they HAVE TO LOVE GOD AND GOD ALONE, wouldn't this be a natural response for what he created to have. As when a child is born to a mother, that child grows up to love the nurturer??

    i'll let HIM speak for himself......


    The Wisdom of Sirach 2:2-8
    "Prepare yourself to be tried. Set your heart right
    and be firm. Do not be hasty when things go against
    you. Hold fast to him and do not forsake him so that
    you may be honored when your life ends. Accept
    whatever happens to you and be patient in humiliating
    vicissitudes, for gold is tested with fire, and men
    who are approved must be tested in the furnace of
    humilation. Have faith in him, and he will help you.
    Make your ways straight, and put your hope in him.
    You who fear YHWH wait for his mercy and do not turn
    aside or you will fail."

    You never heard of a chid that hates their parents or a child that killed their parents ? Have ever heard of the Menendez brothers? Not all children love their parents.

    God gives us free will to choose.....the choice is the individuals whether or not he chooses to love the Christian God, Jesus.

    The Word says, "He first loved us..all we have to do is make the choice which way we will go, at that point everything else follows. If you choose yea then you will do, if not then you won't. Simple as that!!!

    Well.....

    I've grown to understand and accept most things in this world.

    I even understand the need for death.

    But the one thing I just can't understand is why there is disease and illness.

    Why can't we just remain physically intact until we die at our appointed time?

    I just don't see the need for sickness and disease.

    There simply no such thing as a good person, but the Son has told us only the Father is Good. I believe that we should believe the Son in faith, for all He has done in His work and sacrifice and resurrection, for our salvation and redemption to the Father, by the Son, in the Spirit.

    There are good people! if you go through life thinking all people are sinners or bad people then you will be a good person facing bad things all the time cause you have surounded yourself with a mindset of negativity!

    Remember Jesus was carpenter and to be good Christian you need to know how to build! Best thing to start with is your mind, and make sure your vision and expectations are on the level. If you expect bad most of the time you will receive what you expect! Start expecting good in your life and see what happens!
