    WHY DOES GOD ALLOW ENORMOUS SUFFERING IN THIS WORLD?

    I am not trying to drag others into my misery. In fact I am not inflicting suffering on anyone else. Nobody is inflicting this suffering upon me except for God himself In fact, you are right online is not the place to discuss these things. People don't like to here stuff like this, and I regret...

    WHY DOES GOD ALLOW ENORMOUS SUFFERING IN THIS WORLD?

    That was my personal opinion. I don't believe that prayer does much good.  In the end God decides, so why bother asking Him in the first place? Based on your statement it sounds like you haven't suffered much. I have suffered in my life and it is no fun. You know it is no fun? Because it never...

    WHY DOES GOD ALLOW ENORMOUS SUFFERING IN THIS WORLD?

    This question perplexes me frequently. I do not understand the suffering in this world. I have asked this question to many, and I have come to the conclusion that we don't know why suffering exists. We give our best stab at it but in the end we don't know why. I found the Archbishop of...

    "Pupose Driven Life"

    God has no plan for your life. Frankly, I don't think God cares about what you do with your life. Who wants God to be their friend? He will only let you down just like friends do. Life is purposeless, cruel, and full of pain. It has no meaning. So much garbage peddled by the "pop Christian"...

    Orthodox President--is this possible?

    I don't think an Orthodox president will ever happen. This country is too entrenched in its WASP ways.

    Do we have a right to be happy?

    Do we have a right to be happy? I don't know but I doubt that Orthodoxy lets you have much fun. Orthodoxy is not for the timid. All I know is that happiness eludes me.

    coffee hour
