With so much devastation in the news, it's hard not to ask God, "Why?" Here's some help for responding to questions about natural disasters and God.

There are Evangelicals and Catholics who critique yoga as wrong for Christians because its mantras originate in eastern religion. Setting aside that concern, should worship space be open to recreation and "profane" (i.e., secular) activities like yoga?
While it seems insensitive to ask this while we grieve, people are wondering why didn't God heal Nabeel.

Nabeel had so much more to give to his family and the Kingdom of God that his death seems completely senseless.
If you think North Korea's dictators are bad for the world, just imagine what it's like to be a Christian there. Operation World says that although no one really knows their true number, there could be as many as 350,000 underground Christians. Where did they all come from, and how do they survive?

A radio host in Detroit told me he was shocked one day when a caller referred to his child as a "carbon unit." Yes, a carbon unit. That's how a dad talked about his own kid. But this is not much different than referring to a baby in the womb as a "mass of cells."
