    The assignment I have been given asks me “Can any obstacle or disadvantage be turned into something good?” I believe this statement to be mostly true. Although I think that most things can be turned into something good, I would not go so far as to say that “any” thing can be turned into good. One of the only things that I can think of that can not be turned into good is your own death. Even though other peoples deaths can benefit you, your own death will not benefit you the majority of the time. I took a class in my second semester of college, it was called “Failure, Change and Integrity”. The class dealt with how to accept failure and in that class I realized that failure is actually a good thing. It means you have actually set a goal for yourself and did not achieve that goal, while failing give a bad feeling it means that you tried. The bad feeling that you get is somewhat a good thing. It makes it so that you do not want to feel that feeling again and thus try to succeed next time you try the task. The obstacles that you face, whether you defeat them or not only strengthens your resolve.…

    I believe that bad things happen to good people. Better yet, I believe that terrible things happen to the most innocent of people. Nothing bad ever happened to Hitler; the millions of innocent jews he killed did not deserve their gruesome deaths. Orphans as young as children do not deserve a life without a parent to guide them through it. A lot of times I ask myself, Why? Why do things like this happen to good people, why don 't I ever see bad people suffering? A lot of times I turn to God and…

    emotional harm to something or someone. So one might ask the question, if God is all powerful and all knowing, how can that same God allow evil to exist in the world? Most importantly, why do bad things happen to good people? In our textbook it states that “when such questions are raised in connection with belief in God or gods, we may describe them as issues of theodicy, or “divine justice” (Cunningham, pg. 102) The definition for theodicy in our text explains it as being “the attempt to answer…

    Why does God let bad things happen to good people? A question that will be asked until we meet our Father in heaven and get to ask Him directly. I think we need to unpack a few things in attempt to answer that question. First, where did evil come from and when did it begin? Has there always been evil in this world? Did God bring evil into this world or did we? To get a baseline for this question I think we need to establish “bad things” and where it derived from. Secondly, do we have freewill or…

    (particularly parents) may argue that it is a good thing to give every kid a trophy, because if you don’t some kids may feel left out or not appreciated. There are many positive effects that giving out participation awards give to children. But, there are just as many if not more negative effects to it as well and giving out these awards can affect the kind of person the child will become as they grow older. “Although psychologists have offered a variety of definitions of self-esteem, most…

    and followed unquestioningly, no matter how illogical, bizarre, or cruel. The people of the town are technically murderers, yet they seem to feel no remorse, no guilt. This extreme story is just proof of how out of hand things can get if people never question or critically address tradition but rather follow it blindly. There is this quote by Rabbi Bachye that goes, “the faith of the believer is not complete unless he knows the meaning and reason of his belief.” This quote generally applies to…

    As Viviana walked away from the house carrying little Isabela, she felt the power of Esme inhabit the house and reach out for her. It buzzed inside her head like a sick headache and brought nausea to her throat. She used every bit of her will and pushed her grandmother back. She regretted not being able to bring her sister with her, but questions would most certainly be asked if she carried a dead body down the middle of Main Street. She wouldn’t be able to take care of the child forever and…
