WHY ME?: When Bad Things Happen to Good People

Christian Publishing House
Free sample

 Herein Andrews will answer the “why.” He will address whether God is responsible for the suffering we see. He will also delve into whether God’s foreknowledge is compatible with our having free will. He will consider how we can objectively view Bible evidence, as he answers why an almighty, loving and just God would allow bad things to happen to good people. Will there ever be an end to the suffering? He will explain why life is so unfair and does God step in and solve our every problem because we are faithful? He will also discuss how the work of the Holy Spirit and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit should be understood in the light of wickedness. Lastly, Andrews will also offer biblical counsel on how we can cope when any tragedy strikes, as well as how we can avoid letting any lingering doubts destroy our faith, and how we can prevent our feelings from controlling us, as we overcome the anxieties of life.

 John 8:31-32 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word , you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free .”

Delving into the basics of biblical interpretation, Edward D. Andrews has provided a complete hands-on guide to understanding what the author meant by the words that he used from the conservative grammatical-historical perspective. He teaches how to study the Bible on a deep, scholarly level, yet making it understandable to all. He has sought to provide the very best tool for interpreting the Word of God. This includes clarification of technical terms, answers to every facet of biblical interpretation, and defense of the inerrancy and divine inspiration of Scripture.

Andrews realizes that the importance of digging deeper in our understanding of the Bible, for defending our faith from modern day misguided scholarship. Andrews gives the reader easy and memorable principles and methods to follow for producing an accurate explanation that comes out of, not what many read into the biblical text. The principal procedure within is to define, explain, offer many examples, and give illustrations, to help the reader fully grasp the grammatical-historical approach. Finally, Andrews provides the next generation of Christians, a fresh new Bible reading/study program. This program will not only help the reader know the Bible, but also be able to interpret it, explain it, defend it, and use it when sharing their faith.

#1 New York Times best-seller with more than 11 million copies sold and Amazon’s #17 best-selling book of all time. Heaven Is for Real was the best-selling non-fiction book of 2011 as reported by Nielsen’s Bookscan, and was developed as a major motion picture by Sony in 2014.

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

 Herein Andrews will give the reader exactly what the Bible offers on exposing who the Antichrist and the Man of Lawlessness are. If we look at the texts that refer to the antichrist and the man of lawlessness, we will have lines of evidence that will enable us to identify them. Why is it important that we know who the antichrist and the man of lawlessness are? The antichrist and the man of lawlessness have had a greater impact on humanity and Christianity over the past centuries than many know. Moreover, the influence on the true worshipers of Christianity today has been even more significant and will only go from bad to worse as we come closer the second coming of Christ.

Let us offer an analogy to make the above point, even more, impactful. What would we do if a deadly outbreak of a disease that is spreading more quickly and more extensively among the people than would normally be expected and it is raging in our country, especially within our city, right in our community? Would we not look for a way to build up our immune system? Would we not also want to avoid anyone carrying the disease? The same holds true of the antichrist and the man of lawlessness, who not only have the ability to take our physical life but also our eternal life. Therefore, in a Scriptural sense, we would want to build ourselves up spiritually and avoid anyone who is affected by these evil ones, not to mention the antichrist and the man of lawlessness themselves. The Scriptures tell us “the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is in the world already.” (1 John 4:3) Still staying with the analogy, if we want to avoid being infected, we have to identify the antichrist/man of lawlessness and the carriers of the disease.

This publication will accomplish just that and do so Scripturally. Nothing herein will be based on an opinion; it will all be God’s Word. The first four chapters will cover the Antichrist. Chapters 5-6 will deal with the Man of Lawlessness. The apostle Paul tells us “Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with …” [2 Thessalonians 2:8] In addition, Chapter 7 will identify the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelation.
