If We Would Only Love As HE Wants Us To
Our Spirits Would Soar Our Souls Renew
Then Mankind Would See A Better Life
Void Of Evil Greed And Strife
The World Would Be A Beautiful Place To Live
If We Would Only Learn To Give
Instead We Take And Desire Of Things
Not Blessed By HIM Who Love Did Bring
HE Came And Said My Brother Man
Accept This Gift From The Golden Lamb
Some Did Listen To The Words HE Said
Others Did Laugh And Turned Their Head
As They Nailed HIM To A Cross Of Wood
Still HE Blessed Them As Only HE Could
The Years Have Passed Since That Holy Day
When HE Walked The Earth Taking Sin Away
If We Would Only Love As HE Wants Us To
Then Our Spirits Would Soar Our Souls Renew
If Only The World Could See The Truth

Lovely. So true. Spread the truth and the love. "For I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through ME."

If Jesus and God were good people (like PURE goodness) then why don't they do anything about our problems or listen to pur prayers?

This is an excellent question and one that I have asked myself many times. If I were God I would install an embassy here on Earth staffed by angelic beings to guide and help people; it would certainly solve a lot of problems and make the world a better place to live. Since I am not God I have asked myself why this doesn't happen and have [and still do at times]share the same feelings and doubts as you. The only logical answer that I can think of is that we are left unincumbered to decide for ourselves - some call it free will. I'm sure our prayers are heard but those that hear them must abide by this rule. Imagine if you owned a planet somewhere in the universe, its beauty beyond anything we could imagine. You wanted people to share it with you; would you be selective or just let anyone come at the risk of its beauty being damaged? So what do you do? How do you decide? I guess what I would do would be to send out invitations to everyone with directions of how to get there and hope that all accept.
Every day I have doubts; it's normal considering what life throws our way, but my heart tells me there must be a reason for this Earth and the universe to exist - and everyday I never stop searching for the truth.
