2 men.... The 1st man is kind, loving and caring, has done no wrong only good in is life but this man does not believe in Jesus/God. The 2nd man is a bad man he's stole, raped women and even murdered but this man believes in Jesus/God. So which man will go to heaven and which man will go to hell? The kind, loving and caring man who has done no wrong only good in is life will he go to hell because he doesnt believe in Jesus/God? The man who's stole raped and murded will he go to heaven because he does believe in Jesus/God?

Surely this is not right?

I can here give you only what Jesus said about this problem. In Mathew. 25: 30 to 45 Jesus clearly says that those who do good to others will go to heaven. "Whatever you do to the least of my brothers that you do to me." he says. To those who are condemned he will say, "When I was hungry you did not feed me" etc.
From these words of Jesus the obvious conclusion is that your 1 st man will get heaven and the other one hell. Reading Mt. 25 30 on we understand that we are not judged on what we believed or what religion you belonged but on how you treated tour fellow beings especially the least of them, the downtrodden.

Who made God?

Discuss this question

Question found in Education In General
Who made God? What was God doing before creation of our universe? How was God born? Does God have a mom and Dad? These are some of the questions that arise out of our misconceptions about the nature of God; because we think of God as if He was a human like us; as if He had a beginning and an end like the creation.

When we mention ‘misconceptions’, the obvious question is, “What is the correct perception of God?” What do we know about God? Unfortunately, the answer is that we know pretty little if anything. Trying to use our intellect to understand God is like trying to empty all the water in all the oceans into a teacup. This is so because God is infinite and our intellect is finite. But we can say this much about God.
1. He is infinite and not limited by space.
2. He is eternal and not limited by time. He has no beginning or end.

As He is eternal He was always there. He was not born at any point in time as there was nothing as time before the creation of the universe. At the creation time and space were created along with matter and energy.

I was shopping at the weekend, I sat down on a bench in the town centre when I heard a man preaching about God. I believe in God but basically what this man was saying that if you don't you'll go straight to hell forever. My Grandad was a lovely kind man but didn't believe. I'd hate to think if this man was right?

Question found in Bible Studies
Don't worry. I guess Jesus knows better than the man who was preaching at the roadside. According to Jesus we are judged not on what we believe but on how we live. Read Mathew 25: 30 to 45. Jesus says that you are judged on how we treat the least of His brothers. Membership of a religion, faith in a system or creed, attending worship at churches or temples are all means to the end. The end is leading a good life devoted to serving others, being good to others. Reading the Bible all day does not help if you do not practice what is said there. So your granddad or whoever will be judged according to his life. And remember Our God is a merciful God.

How to discipline a 5 year old who back talks all the time?

Discuss this question

Question found in Parenting & Family In General
I doubt if discipline is what is needed. His present behaviour could have been the result of too much discipline or the lack of proper love, affection in the early years. The best solution could be to adopt a drastically different attitude to the one you are already adopting. Just laugh at his retorts, joke with him and pretend you did not notice his / her behaviour, such that he will be surprised and will try to adapt new techniques. Meanwhile give it lot of love affection, care and time. I believe strongly that love is the best remedy.

What is the meaing of relativity?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
According to Einstein, everything in this universe is relative except the velocity of light which is constant. Relativity can be explained with a simple example.
For a passenger in a train, a box next to him is at rest. But for an external observer it is moving at the speed of the train. Standing with my two feet firmly on ground I find the rock next to me as at rest. But if you observe this rock from out there in space it is found to be moving fast with the rotation and revolution of the earth as well as with the movement of the solar system as a whole and so on.

Another angle to relativity is that nothing in this universe is absolute. Everything has meaning with reference to something else only. Time has no existence without space or matter. Space has no existence without matter etc. etc. it goes on.

To be a planet does an object have to orbit around a star?

Discuss this question

Question found in Space & Astronomy
That is right.
Only objects that orbit around a star are a planet. But to be a planet it should have had sufficient mass to have gravity turn it into an almost spherical shape. All the large and small rock pieces that go round our sun are called asteroids. Objects that go round a planet are satellites.
