    First order of business...

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. -Joh 3:16

    John 3:17-21
    -17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    -18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    -19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
    -20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
    -21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
    -Matthew 1:16

    Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli,
    -Luke 3:23

    the goodness of god can be overestimated and it usually is.

    It can never be overestimated. He is a father that loves you so much that instead of turning his back on you and I, he sought out a way of redeeming us from our sins.

    How?

    If you believe in God, you know that He gave you EVERYTHING Good in your life.

    Has it been THAT bad?!?

    Perhaps your god isn't The God...

    It is far from a tragedy, Eagle, it was a carefully engineered defeat of Satan by YHWH himself. Jesus took our place on the cross and suffered the wrath to come so that we might have eternal life.
