A Dialog Between a Student and a Professor

Apr 16, 2012   //   by zike   //   General, Zion's Blog  //  No Comments

I found this post on Facebook of all places.  I thought that I would share it here, since I think that many of you will find it interesting.

A Dialog Between a Student and a Professor

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
