Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3rDuvxGkBY&ab_channel=KristenWalkerSmith When I was 7 years old my dad died. He was a wonderful person. He was kind, he had a strong testimony, and he loved to serve in our community. But best of all, he loved to spend time with me, my 4 older sisters, and my mom. At his funeral, I remember thinking: why did God let this happen? Our family goes to church. My parents pay their tithing. We obey the law! If someone had to die, shouldn’t it have been a horrible criminal instead of my righteous dad?  Have you ever had those kinds of thoughts? Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? If so, I want you to imagine that you’re back in Old Testament times and you are about to…

3 Times in 1 Verse Jesus Said “I am God”

Is Jesus God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4pcmzlzgmg&ab_channel=TheVerdantChristian Muslims always tried to find in the bible where Jesus himself says “I am God.” So I will show you one verse where Jesus himself says “I am God”, not only once but three times in one verse. And your Quran itself affirmed this claim that Jesus is God. There are 99 names of Allah in the Quran. The Quran was originally written in Arabic language. If you want to know what those names are, read the Quran. It is strictly prohibited and it is a shirk if anyone claimed these divine names for themselves. For example, Allah is the name of the Islamic God, whose meaning in English is “the greatest name”. When we say “Al-Khaliq”, its meaning in English is “the creator”. No mortal man or angel…

NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME…JOHN 1:18

Is Jesus God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcrtiYH1AaQ&ab_channel=LukeTheBeliever I've titled this teaching “No one has seen God at any time.” We're going to be reading from the gospel of John 1:18: “No man has seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared him.” No one can see the nature or the essence of God. To see God is to die. Let's turn to the book of Exodus 33:20 and he said “Thou canst not see my face, for there shall no man see me and live.” Only one who is himself divine can see God. Thus the Son of God is the only one who can declare him, that is to make him known. However, there have been quite a few people who have seen…

Did anyone believe in the Trinity before Nicea?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2YZ0WweRQM&ab_channel=AChristianGuy A charge that I have encountered in my comments is that nobody believed in the doctrine of the Trinity prior to the Council of Nicea. There is a half-truth to this in that, in the early days of the Church, the language of Trinitarian doctrine – namely, 1 God in 3 Persons, etc. – was not fully developed yet. The linguistic understanding of the Trinity that Christians hold today comes largely from the Cappadocian Fathers – Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa and Gregory of Nazianzus – who lived around the latter half of the fourth century, between the times of the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople. These three men lived during a time when Arianism (the belief that Jesus was not truly God) was very…

How could Jesus die if he was God?

Uncategorized
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHp4Cp6bp_4&ab_channel=CrossExamined Question: If Jesus is God himself, with Jesus dying, wouldn’t Jesus dying nullify the attributes of God? Answer: No, because his human nature died, not his divine nature. The Trinity is three persons in one nature. You have one divine nature in this triangle and three corners in the triangle. You have Father, Son and Holy Spirit in one divine nature. The Son Jesus also has a human nature. These two natures don't intermingle so when Jesus died, God didn’t die. This human nature is perfect and so when he lives a perfect life in our place and takes punishment, he's not suffering punishment for his sins (he didn't have any), he's suffering punishment for our sins. And so when we trust in him, we can be saved. God…

Is God cruel in the Old Testament?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pZ3ohFU3bc&ab_channel=AChristianPerspectivewithMatthewTingblad Related articles Why does God kill innocent people in the Old Testament? How could a loving God send bears to maul children? Why is the God of the Old Testament different from the God of the New Testament? Transcript of the above video Over the years, I've read a few of the major books on atheism and one of the things that they often spend time talking about is these horrors that they see happening in the Old Testament by a God whom Christians claim to be benevolent and loving. There's these judgments and conquests, brutal slaughters and killings happening in the Old Testament, condoned by God, that include women and children! There's the Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the firstborn of the families of Egypt, Joshua in the Canaan…

Was Jesus born on December 25th?

Jesus' life
https://www.youtube.com/shorts/N_4JHd9Y1Qg 5 myths about the Christmas Story. Coming in at number one. Jesus was born on December 25th. We celebrate Christmas on December 25th. So isn't it logical to think that Jesus was born on that day? The reality is that actually we don't know exactly when Jesus was born. Scholars offered different dates. Some have suggested that December 25th was picked because that was a pagan holiday “Sol Invictus”. One explanation is that it was believed that Mary conceived on March 25th, move forward 9 months, end up on December 25th. The bottom line is we don't know exactly when Jesus was born but we choose to celebrate it on December 25th nonetheless.

Why didn’t God destroy Satan at the very beginning?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nugzuAud_uY&ab_channel=EveryManMinistries You and I right now are living out the next act of this unfolding story. Satan has an object and it's what God loves. What does God love and send his son to die for? People. God loves people and in creating man, God gave Satan an object upon whom he'd be free to project all this hostility. All the sufferings and the agony which have flowed from from that moment God said “Let there be light” leads us to that ultimate question: Why didn't God nip it in the bud? Why didn't he cut it off right there? Why let it roll and create all this pain and suffering over time and through the centuries? If you are like me, you can't look at the Holocaust in Nazi…
