losing faith and questioning god
« on: Sat Dec 19, 2009 - 03:09:35 »
I had always believed in the bible and baptist religion. I always believed myself to be a Christian. I could never follow another religion but baptist for i know it to be the truth. But now I am so angry with god. I begin to see god in a new light. Before I never question god now that all i do.
god says thou shall not kill. To kill is a sin but yet god has done this verything. He flooded the earth killing unborn babies, babies, and children not to mention adults. He did it again when he killed every first born son regardless of age. What does this make god? To kill is a sin then god committed a sin
I never question god before or been so angry with him.
I Begin to lose faith because of my sister. You see, my sister she never smoked or drank not even soda. She ate healthy and swam the Alcatraz swim 3 times and was active in her church and was a sunday school teacher and a excellent christian
But my sister is dying. She will be dead by this time next year.and she only in her early 40's. 6 months ago she could walk now she in a electric wheel chair, 2 months ago she could feed herself now she has to be feed. she has garret's disease.which distroys the muscles and is fatal

I have prayed for god to take this disease from my sister and put it on me.I want my faith back but how can I if god takes her?How do I get my faith back?How can I forgive god?And how do i do without my sister?

I am sorry no one has answered your question yet. How is your sister doing? The question to your answer will require some time and prayer.  A couple of quick answers:

When we seperate our selves from God through sin we also loose his protection from the destruction of Satan.  Through the tragedies God is there to console us. 

Jesus did not suffer and die on the cross so we would not have to suffer and die ourselves.  Part of the reason for the Passion is so we would have an example and we would know how to suffer.
 
Also for those that attain salvation Death is really The beginning of the rest of our lives.  That is one reason why many people have a great time of suffering it gives them time to come to Christ.  It also gives us time to be healed and cleansed of our sins.  Luke 12:47-48

Matt 5:48....it is a purifacation

If you are still looking for answers I can spend some time on this and see if I can help you out.  If you turn the scriptures you will find the truth.

I know this has been along time.  This is my first day on here.  The only thing I can say is that God's ways are not our ways, as it says in the scripture.  God's rules are not our rules either, he does not use or need gravity, he made the rules for us.  We cannot demand that he follow the rules the he gave to us.

It is impossible for a human to understand the almighty God.  Sometimes, people don't think it is fair that God does what he will, as if we should be equal to him!  God loves us, we are His creation, and to him, this pinpoint of human existence is not all there is.  I don't understand how long eternity is compared to the few years we get here, but He is working things for the good for those who love him.  It may not feel like it, like loved ones dying before when we think they should, but it is part of God's giant quilt.

I do not know how things are going in your life, but I do know that all of us must turn to Him for our comfort.  Lost people do not have the Holy Spirit to help them.  We do. Ask the Father to send the Comforter to help you.  We have a choice, to live a bitter life towards the One that knows the future and loves us, or we can trust Him.  I find myself saying, "OK, God, if that's what you are going to do, I will trust you because I know you love me. I don't know what good came come of this, or how I will even be able to live after it, but I will trust you."  Many times, I have been devastated about something that was going to happen.  Sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't.  Either way, I found that trusting God to manage his creation took a lot of burden off of me.  He cares from the sparrow, why not me?  Of course, he cares for me and for you.

It's not unusual for someone to get mad at God.  It's all through the Bible. Most of the time, they told God they were mad at him, but you must keep your faith,  He will show you and even if he doesn't, you will know in eternity.

God bless you and I am praying that you will find comfort and increase your faith.

Ff she does die and if she is a christian she will be the lucky one, she will be in a far better place.  Don't be jealous of her.

Who knows the following verses might get your sister healed.


James 5:14
Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;

James 5:15
and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him


James 5:16
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working


I take those above verses as going to a church that would anoint her with oil and she would confess her sins to them and then they would pray for her to be healed and if she has faith to be healed then she would be healed.

However; I am not God, so I don't know how he would chose to heal her, since if she died she would no longer be sick in her mortal body but alive in her heavenly body.
