Michael asks…

The Sand Creek Massacre occurred because?

The Sand Creek Massacre occurred because

Black Kettle distrusted the soldiers and hoped to gain victory through a surprise attack.

Cheyenne men returning from a hunt opened fire on the soldiers.

Colonel Chivington ordered his troops to open fire to kill the Indians.

The Cheyenne panicked and began to run when they saw the soldiers.

Helen answers:

The answer is C but there is more involved. The US Army wanted to wipe out all the Indians and their resistance.
They did not consider them humans, but something lower. This is one of the saddest chapters of US history because there were also other massacres.
There was constant tension between the native occupants of the land and the US Army, and the immigrants. Their cultures were totally different, had competing aims and differing values.This could only lead to grave trouble. In many cases it led to diseases, extinction, and outright domination of the Indians and seizure of American Indian properties.
They machine-gunned women, children, and older people in other words, non-combatants while they were sleeping. I hope this helps!

Paul asks…

people who dont belive in god. when they die do they go to heven or hell?

i want to know do god accepted them?

Helen answers:

They don’t go to Heaven or Hell

This is the truth about Hell.
#1. Hell as you may know it,(fiery place of torment) is not a real place.
The Hebrew word for hell is “Sheol” and the Greek word is Hades, our english equivalent is Hell these three words are not referring to a place of fiery torment but of the common grave of all mankind.
To justify this statement we must look to the Bible. Eccl. 9:5, 10 reads…”The living are conscious that they will die as for the dead they are conscious of nothing at all….All that your hand finds to do, do with all your might for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol (hell) the place to which you are going. (If they are conscious of nothing, they obviously feel no pain.)

#2. If God is love how then could Hell (fiery place of torment) Exist?
What would you think of a parent who held his child’s hand over a fire to punish a child for wrong doing? God is love. Would he do what no right-minded parent would do?

#3. At Romans 6:23 The bible says ” The wages of sin is death” keep that in mind, I’ll come back to it.
If I take a piece of paper and tear it to pieces with a little tape or glue I could put the piece of paper back together again. If I set the paper on fire there is no way I could repair it, it would be eternally destroyed. This is the meaning of the Fiery hell in the bible, it is not a place of eternal torment but a place of eternal destruction, it is the grave. When an individual dies they have the hope of a Resurrection. Some who have died will be resurrected to a day of judgment, some will not; they will remain in the grave forever eternally cut off from the presence of God, with no hope of eternal life in paradise. So as you can see the wages of your sin is for you to die not to be tormented by being eternally burned alive.
Also, did you notice that of the 9 times in the bible when someone was resurrected they never claimed to have been in Heaven or Hell?
The earth is a perfect creation of God’s why would he destroy His perfect creation and take all “good christians” to heaven?

“The meek shall inherit the earth and dwell upon it forever.” (Psalms 37;9,11,29)
This is what the bible says, is this a contradiction or have people just misinterpreted the scriptures and think that they are all going to Heaven?
John 3:13 says “Moreover NO man has ascended into heaven but He that descended from Heaven.”

The earth is the home of humans. When the bible spoke of a new heaven and a new earth it was referring to a new earthly people not a new physical earth. Ecclesiastes 1:4 …” A generation is going, and a generation is coming but the earth is standing forever.”
Psalms 37:11…”but the meek ones themselves will possess the earth…”
God created the earth for humans to live, why would he take this earth and destroy it? It would be a perfect place for humans to live if there was no war, sickness, famine, disease, crime, wickedness, hatred or death right?
That is the plan for Earth… For all humans to live in peace and to live forever on earth, our home. Everything we love and live for, all of the things humans enjoy, are all here on earth. Our families, food, sex (which God created not only for procreation but also for pleasure), and the beauty of the earth which we enjoy every day. How much more beautiful and enjoyable would this earth seem to us if all wickedness was wiped away? Would you even want to go to heaven? Your dead loved ones will even be brought back to life! I would much rather live here on earth under those conditions than any place else.

Sharon asks…

Does it make sense to ask to be granted escape from suffering by being sent to a place of GREATER suffering?

Would it make sense that if you were in prison, serving a short sentence in a medium security prison, you would ask to be able to escape that sentence by being sent to a maximum security prison for life? Of course not.

Well…then … why would it make sense that Job would ask to escape his tremendous but temporary suffering by being sent to a place of greater, eternal suffering?

Job 14:13 (English Standard Version (©2001)
Oh that you would hide me in Sheol (the HEBREW word translated as hell), that you would conceal me until your wrath be past, that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me

Thoughts please? And play nice.
Thank you all for your nice responses. At Oli. Precisely. Now, why would he think it was easier if it were a place of ETERNAL fiery torment.

Helen answers:

Sheol actually means “place of the dead”…other translations have it put as “the grave” or as “death” in stead of sheol.

He was in so much suffering after loosing all that he had, having all of his children killed and having such a hidious and painful disease that he was simply saying to God that he wished he was dead.

Joseph asks…

One of my Y!A contact feels ”Medical treatments/Diagnosis are worse than the disease”, What are your views?

Helen answers:

Senthil ji, yes in some cases that is true. Thiru Bala gave an perfect example, treatment to Cancer is worse than the disease itself. Probably our country with growing population can become # 1 stem cell donor and treatment facility to the world. All they have to do is collect (with parents permission) umbilical cord blood which could supply the same kinds of blood-forming (hematopoietic) stem cells as a bone marrow donor.

Some serious illnesses (such as certain childhood cancers, blood diseases, and immune system disorders) require radiation and chemotherapy treatments to kill diseased cells in the body. Unfortunately, these treatments also kill many “good” cells along with the bad, including healthy stem cells that live in the bone marrow.

Depending on the type of disease and treatment needed, some children need a bone marrow transplant (from a donor whose marrow cells closely match their own). Blood-forming stem cells from the donor are transplanted into the child who is ill, and those cells go on to manufacture new, healthy blood cells and enhance the child’s blood-producing and immune system capability.

After cord-blood collection has taken place, the blood is placed into bags or syringes and is usually taken by courier to the cord-blood bank. Once there, the sample is given an identifying number. Then the stem cells are separated from the rest of the blood and are stored cryogenically (frozen in liquid nitrogen) in a collection facility, also known as a cord-blood bank.

This could be the life saver for the kid and their future generation, we need to do is educate people about this and have high tech storage facilities in many states/cities to help everyone.

My friends mom was diagnosed with Lukemia recently and she went through Chemo-Therapy, lost her body immunity etc… Later she recovered and last month they found the Lukemia back in her body. She said, I am not going to go through this crap and she is enjoying every moment of her life, with family, friends and relatives. You won’t believe this she infact picked up her tombstone for her grave with nice engravings. Some people thought she is gone nuts, I think she understood and accepted the fact of life easily than anyone else.
