The God Squad: More questions from Mercy Catholic High School

Rabbi Marc Gellman, Tribune Content Agency on

Yes, the girls at Mercy Catholic High School in Middletown, Connecticut, still have more questions about God for me!

Q: From A: How can God send us to hell if he loves us?

A: How can your parents discipline you even if they love you?

Q: From H: How do you know God is with you in everything you do? Do you really believe that every step you take, every choice you make he's beside you? Thank You

A: Yes! I believe that God is with me every step I take. The question that haunts me is whether I am with God?

Q: From A: If God is real, and His bond is so strong, then how can people lose faith so easily? How can you believe in God so strongly when there is no visible proof of His existence?


A: Carl Sandberg once wrote these true words, “A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.” I believe that a baby is proof for the existence of God.

Q: From I: When there is injustice in the world such as terrorism or discrimination, how are we supposed to respond? Thank you for your time.

A: I, we must oppose evil in all its forms or the free will God gave to us is a wasted gift.

Q: From K: Why is it that God places various hardships within our lives, like the pandemic of COVID-19? Do you believe that God has a plan for everyone he created and that everything that happens (from the smallest of things to the largest) to each person is a part of that plan?
