Where Was Buddah?
Where was Buddah? Believe it or not, this was a question that popped in my head while watching the earthquake disaster in China. Another question: How could a good and loving Buddah allow bad things to happen to good people? Is it a fair question? It's a question that someone asks of God every time something terrible occurs. I don't mean to make light of the disasters. The question, when asked of God, I think reveals our doubt that He actually exists. It seems judgmental too. Who are we to question? Why do good things happen to bad people? I think if you're going to ask the first question then the other question seems legit. This much I know; I don't have all the answers and I never will, but I do have grace from God and eternal life as given through Christ and I don't have to work for it. It's a gift and for that, I'm thankful. I'll think I'll leave all the answers to the atheists.
