The God Squad: More questions from Ms. Pepitone’s theology class

Rabbi Marc Gellman, Tribune Content Agency on

A: Thank you. I used to have a prayer box, but now that I am old, I need another box with a note to tell me where I put the first box. Seriously, you only need two prayers, “Thank you” and “Give me the strength to do your will.”

Q: From H: Dear Rabbi Gellman, is God always there even when I cannot feel His presence?

A: Yes.

Q: From K: What are religions that started from another religion?

A: Out of Judaism came Christianity and Islam. Out of Hinduism came Buddhism.

Q: From G: Why are women not given a greater role within many churches and religions if we were made equal to men? Thank you.

 

A: They should be.

Q: From T: Hi Rabbi Gellman, if God created Adam and Eve as the first ever human beings, what were dinosaurs about? Thank you.

A: The dinosaurs were not the first people and Adam and Eve were not the first dinosaurs. Hope that clears things up for you.
