Why would Christ say, “My God, why has Thou forsaken Me?”

Sincerely,
Questioning Quotes

Dear Questioning Quotes,

Christ spoke those words with His dying breaths, hanging upon a cross (Mk 15:34).  Jesus was on that cross for our sins (1 Cor 15:3).  When Jesus hung upon the cross, He carried the weight of all the sins of mankind upon His shoulders (1 Pet 2:24).  As our innocent Savior carried that unimaginable weight upon His shoulders, He bore the blackness of our sins and the separation from God that sin brings with it (Hab 1:13).  As Jesus gasped for air, He was separated from His Father for our sakes.  That is why He said what He did.

Doctorate In Delusion

Monday, September 23, 2013
I am a student at a university.  Why does it seem that God is "far away" from places such as universities?  I know it sounds dreadful, but seeing what young people do these days, one cannot but wonder where everything is going.  Please help.  Kind regards.

Sincerely,
A Student

Dear A Student,

God is far away from universities because God isn’t wanted at most universities.  The average college teaches evolution, political correctness, and religious diversity.  There is no room for the one and only Jesus (Jhn 14:6) in an atmosphere that proclaims “live and let live”.

Colleges routinely promote promiscuity under the guise of “safe sex”.  Substance abuse is accepted and oftentimes promoted.  In short, everything anti-christian finds a home in these collegiate environments.  Modern campuses are simply reenacting the story of Rom 1:18-32.

Cha-Ching

I have heard about people making money by God's methods for finances.  My question is: how does the Bible tell you to make money?

Sincerely,
Entrepreneur

Dear Entrepreneur,

If we read the Bible for the purpose of financial gain, we will have missed the point.  The first key to biblical finances is to be content with what you have (1 Tim. 6:5-8).  God says a lot about money, but the majority of it deals with how to faithfully use what you have.  God doesn’t want us to get wrapped up in money worries (Php 4:6) or in money passions (Heb 13:5).  To cover every verse on finances is far too large a topic for the scope of this forum, but all of them point to the fact that all our money is a gift from God and that we should be good stewards of whatever amount we have.
