“So, where is now God when a one-year-old baby, 18-month-old baby is taken from the mother’s arms, brought under a jeep and raped and killed. So where is God?” Where is God when the plight of Syrian women and children who are burned if they refuse to have sex with ISIS militant fighters?
These are the questions of the Rodrigo Duterte, the current President of the Republic of the Philippines.
Even as Christians, I’m sure you have the same questions in life. The purpose of this blog is to answer those questions, and hopefully reach its designated audiences like the President of the Philippines for one.
Before answering your questions, let me first ask you some questions. Where are we during the time the Lord calls to us? How do we live as Christians or heck, even as non-Christians? What are our priorities, or precisely, what do we worship?
I believe it can be seen in our lifestyle:
How much do we know more about celebrities, movies, entertainment, fame, fortune and fun compared who Jesus is personally?
Do we allow the world to dictate what it wants (God does not exist, premarital sex is the new norm, etc) or do we choose to side with Jesus?
My point is, if we side with the world, we side with the prince of the air – the devil. Do you know that the devil comes to steal, to kill and to destroy (John 10:10). Aren’t we suppose to blame ourselves for allowing the devil into our lives? Should we just neglect all the things we are responsible of creating and just blame Jesus for what happened? Let’s be reasonable.
So where is God? God is there as He is everywhere, but He can’t move His hand if we don’t allow Him to. Everyday, He knocks on our doors, waiting for us to accept His help. Will you accept His Lordship and let Him bring justice and mercy to your World?
To all who question the Lord, I beseech you seek my Christ rather than siding with the music of the world. If you pray an honest prayer and tell Him show you His Ways. Let us see if a whole community will be changed for good or not.
