Rape, Murder, Corona Virus: Is God in Control?
How should Christians ‘feel’ when dealing with all the pain and disaster that planet earth is dumping on us? Let’s talk about our emotions and how they tie into our faith.
Every second of every day Christians are faced with death, disease, murder, and all sorts of evil.
Is it okay to worry about these things? Does it somehow negate our faith?
Was Jesus anxious when He was heading to the cross and asked God to ‘let this cup pass from me’. What about when he was sweating blood?
Was Peter (whom Jesus call ‘’ the ROCK”) afraid when he walked out of the boat and began to sink after doubting?
Yes, God IS in control, but our emotions do not negate our faith. Emotions are not the absence of faith.
God has never promised us physical healing or being able to fully avoid the evil actions of others. Generally speaking, fear, stress, and anxiety are not a result doubting God’s being in control. Fear is usually doubting the actions of evil men who abuse their free will, disease, and other temporary problems found in a broken world.
In this short video we will talk about our emotions and responses resulting from all the pain the world hits us with.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
