Where is God? If God exists, is He standing next to us in every moment of our lives… or is He standing on the sidelines observing… sometimes coming forward to intervene on our behalf?… or is He standing on the sidelines, never interfering, but merely observing the consequences of our choices?… or is He not around at all? The answer to this fundamental question depends upon one’s religious beliefs. In this month’s Life, God, and the Universe blog entitled Where is God?, we explore answers to this fundamental question.
If you’re a Christian, there are times when you are challenged by others for your beliefs… being accused of believing in child-like fairy tales and wishful thinking. How do you respond?

In other words, did Jesus follow His own advice? Did He walk the talk?
