  • Bible Answers: Why Jesus wept for Lazarus

    “The Bible says Jesus cried when His friend Lazarus died. Why did He weep — didn’t He know He was going to raise Lazarus from the dead?” — Kathy

    This story is found only in John’s Gospel (chapter 11), one of several powerful moments in the life of Jesus that are not recorded in the earlier gospels. John, most likely writing many years after Jesus’ death and resurrection, appears to have the aim of clearly portraying both Jesus’ humanity and divinity — an issue that was increasingly debated at the end of the first century and beyond.

  • Bible Answers: Life's troubles should be looked on with a measure of 'exultation'

    “What insights might the Bible have for us as we come through another fire?” —John

    We don’t need the Bible to remind us that life is full of unpleasant experiences, dangerous times and many interruptions of our well-made plans. Of course, the Bible is replete with accounts of such things because it is essentially the story of how humans and God interact in times of crisis.

  • 'Summer blockbuster' series begins

    Hollywood comes to the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos this weekend as the Rev. John Cullinan begins his third annual “Summer Blockbusters” sermon series.
    Using film as the chosen text for his sermons, Cullinan explores what people can learn about their lives from recent — and not so recent — popular movies.
    Past sermons in the series have explored themes of fathers and sons in Tim Burton’s “Big Fish,” grace in “Where the Wild Things Are,” and xenophobia in “Avatar.”
    This year’s series opens this weekend with Pixar’s 2009 animated movie, “Up.” The church will hold a “Dinner and a Movie Night” at 6 p.m. Saturday, with a community dinner.

  • Speculating on end of time

    “We are wondering how Jesus viewed the end of time. Did He think it would be soon or far in the future?’”— Shannon and Kristina

    The answer to your question is “both/and.” In His discourse on the end of time, Jesus’ words revealed two perspectives.  
    The first portrayed a sense of immediacy: “This generation will not pass away before these things happen” (Mt. 24:34). Jesus looked around at His closest friends and told them that in a short time, their world would come to an end. The fulfillment of this statement happened, in fact, within 40 years (A.D. 70), when the Romans as a consequence of Jewish rebellion destroyed Jerusalem.

    “The president said recently, after the death of Osama bin Laden, that ‘justice has been done.’ From a biblical standpoint, was this truly justice or simply revenge?” —Terry

    Bear in mind that biblical ethical content is prescribed primarily for religious reasons; i.e., it is directed toward people who desire to be faithful to God and to reflect His purposes in the world.
    This means at least two things: legal codes and notions of justice appear differently at different periods of biblical history; and, “faith-based ethics” are more readily practiced by individuals than by groups — especially governments and nations.
