God doesn't budge -- he doesn't change things right now -- because he's giving us what we asked for: a world where we get to treat him as though he is absent and unnecessary. Remember the story of Adam and Eve? They ate the "forbidden fruit. For Adam and Eve sort of hoped that they could become like God, without God. They consumed the notion that there was something more valuable in existence than God himself, something more valuable than having a personal relationship with God.
And this world system -- with all of its faults -- came as a result of the choice they made. Their story is the story of all of us, isn't it? Who hasn't said -- if not audibly at least in their hearts -- God, I think I can do this without you. I'll just go this one alone. But thanks for the offer. Why do we do that?
Probably because we've all bought the notion that there's something more valuable, more important, than God. For different people it's different things, but the mindset is the same: God isn't what's most important in life. In fact, I'd just as soon do it without him altogether.

He allows it. Many people experience the painful results of others' or their own choices that run contrary to God's ways All of these can be explained by people who have refused to give God access and influence over their lives. They are going about their lives as they see fit, and they and others suffer. He's not smug. In fact, God could rightly be viewed as leaning forward, compassionate, hoping we will turn to him so that he can bring real life to us.
Why Is Life So Hard?
Jesus said, "Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Jesus commented on this when he said: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Again, Jesus brings the issue back to our relationship with him.
He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. What about those horrible circumstances that hit us in life, caused by someone other than ourselves? When we are feeling victimized, it's useful to realize that God himself endured horrendous treatment from others.
God more than understands what you are going through. There is nothing in life that could be more painful than what Jesus endured on our behalf, when he was deserted by his friends, ridiculed by those who would not believe in him, beaten and tortured before his crucifixion, then nailed to a cross, in shameful public display, dying of slow suffocation. He created us, yet allowed humanity the freedom to do this, to fulfill Scripture and to set us free from our sin.
This was no surprise to Jesus. He was aware of what was coming, foreknowing all the details, all the pain, all the humiliation. Imagine knowing something that awful was going to happen to you. The Christian Broadcasting Network is producing a new Superbook series and has released 4 seasons. Somehow, Gizmo transforms the toy into a real-life robot that can walk and talk for the duration of the adventure, although he still needs to be wound up regularly.
In the first episode, Chris and Joy were cleaning the attic for Chris's father, a somewhat eccentric college professor, when they noticed an old book glowing. The children tried to open the book, but were unable to open it, no matter how hard they pulled. The book promptly opened on its own, shining a blinding light around Chris's bedroom, and started to speak before whisking the children and Gizmo back in time to the Garden of Eden to experience the story of Adam and Eve. In Superbook II Pasokon Travel Tanteidan , which took place two years after the first series, the book fell onto a computer keyboard, giving anybody the ability to see into the past from Christopher's home via the monitor.
Ruffles, his poodle, has managed to get lost in time, which prompted Gizmo and Christopher's little brother rewritten as his cousin in the English dub named Uriah "Uri" Peepers Yuu Asuka in Japanese to search for her. Chris and Joy kept watch and control of the computer from the present.
The older children also had a hard time trying to prevent what happened a secret from Chris's parents. In this series, Gizmo appeared as a fully fledged functioning robot in the present day rather than as a toy in the second series but still needed to be wound up regularly. Gizmo also has a built-in computer keyboard and a monitor in his chest for Gizmo and Uri to stay in contact with Chris and Joy in the present day as well as transporting to other places in time or returning to the present. The first series of Superbook featured stories chiefly from the Hebrew Scriptures Old Testament , although a few episodes dealt with the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and the final episode was about the conversion of Paul of Tarsus.
The episodes in the first series are chiefly unique stories, with no overarching "plot" aside from Chris and Joy learning life lessons from their travels in the Superbook. However, some condensation or editing of stories was necessary to fit them into half-hour episodes and make them suitable for young viewers. Also, some additional edits were necessary for the English versions to make the episodes conform to American broadcast standards. The episodes in Season Two focused solely on Old Testament stories.
Season Two covered some stories featured in Season One for example, the stories of Abraham , Joseph and King David in more detail, while also covering some stories not included in the first series i. Likewise The Flying House , which originally aired in Japan between the two Superbook series, was a more in-depth look at the life of Jesus and other events from the Christian Scriptures New Testament. Additionally, unlike season 1 and by extension the aforementioned Flying House series , the interaction between the modern day characters and the Biblical characters in season 2 is minimal; each episode is mostly a straightforward adaptation of the Biblical stories shown, occurring while Uri and Gizmo are searching for Ruffles.
Set in the 23rd century AD, a boy named Chris, who always has problems, travels with his friends Joy and Gizmo who travel with Superbook to the Biblical times from the Old testament and New testament. When Chris starts to believe that a magician called Miraculo the "Miracle Maker" actually has real powers given by God, he, Joy, and Gizmo are teleported to the time where baby Jesus has grown up and is performing miracles so that the world will know he is the Savior and the Messiah.
The kids witness Jesus healing a paralyzed man , Jesus teaching parables to other people , Jesus calming the storm , and Jesus casting demons out of a possessed man. Chris then understands that true miracles only come from the Lord. When Chris starts hanging out with his cool friends and ignoring the less cool Joy, he and Joy and Gizmo are taken to the time when Jesus was about to be put to death on the cross. They witness the last supper between Jesus and his disciples and Judas 's betrayal of Jesus for thirty pieces of silver.
Chris returns home and then learns that Joy is just as awesome as his cool friends. When Chris begins arguing with his mom Phoebe over visiting his relatives, he, Joy, Gizmo, and, surprisingly, Phoebe are taken to the time Jesus is killed and resurrected. They witness Jesus praying at the garden of Gethsemane , Judas betraying Jesus, Jesus taken to Pilate , Jesus is crucified on the cross and Jesus rising from the dead. They stay just in time to see that Jesus has conquered the grave and appeared to Mary Magdalene.
Later, Chris returns home and apologizes to his mother and their relationship is restored while his mom has no memory of the travel in time. The entire series was available over 26 VHS Volumes.
