Spiritual Questions: Why Do "The Good" Die Young

"The Good Die Young" is an often noted observation.
There are certain Spiritually-Minded Questions, which have troubled mankind for thousands of years. Tragically, in the meantime, some of them have even formed a personally rationalized basis for our ongoing separation from Yahweh. Take, for instance, this particularly common question: "Why do 'the good' die young?"

Or, as it can also be stated alternatively:
  • "Why would 'A Good God' punish [or shorten] the lives of 'The Righteous?'"
  • "Why would 'A Perfect Judge' reward [or lengthen] the days of 'The Wicked?'"
  • "If 'God Is Truly Just,' then why don't our own lives often reflect this fact - far more accurately?"

To many of us, these are deeply disturbing, profoundly troubling, and personally perplexing questions of necessary significance! At times, even the staunchest of Judeo-Christian Believers can struggle with them - given the numerous claims in the scriptures. Consequently, I have decided to begin posting the proper scriptural explanations to these numerous Spiritual Questions, as they are being brought to my attention. If you have such a question - in need of answering - then please feel free to email me at: to inquire and I'll gladly post the correct answers online....

Who [Or What] Is Meant By: "All Israel" - In The Scriptures

Original Map of Ancient Israel - before the captivity.
Time after time, we hear Yahweh [God] relating His prophetically given messages to either: "Jacob," "Ephraim," "Jacob/Ephraim," "Judah," and "All Israel" - in the sacred scriptures... but, what do these specifically descriptive terms really mean; and precisely whom is He talking to whenever He uses them? There is frequently much confusion surrounding them; and many, very sincere, Judeo-Christian Believers find themselves wondering what these scriptural terms honestly mean. After all, a given message is only valuable for the properly intended recipient; and without such correct knowledge, it is virtually useless to anyone! Therefore, let's explore these highly valuable terms - from the actual scriptures themselves....

However, in order to properly understand these numerous biblical references, we will first need to understand a few things about Yahweh Himself.

For instance:
  • Yahweh has made several covenants with mankind - at various times; and He never goes back upon His words.
  • He never forgets a promise having been made and holds both contractual parties fully accountable - particularly including Himself.
  • Since Fathers may speak for their households, the children are assumed parties to the original contract; and thus, by extension, their children are as well - in eternal perpetuity.
  • Like All Fathers, this relationship includes both: Rewards and Chastisements - as an inducement to encouraging proper familial behavior... and His children may not benefit from one, without compliantly submitting themselves to the other.
  • But Unlike Many Fathers, He intimately knows every member of His familial lineage - down to the very last human generation... even when they [themselves], do not know of Him!

Why Do People Do Bad Things To One Another

The "Garden Of Eden," portrait by Peter Wenzell.
As individual human beings, we all share certain things in common. We are all: imperfect, too quick at forming our own opinions or judgments, naturally quite selfish-natured, and prone to making serious errors in judgment. These are all, "Part and parcel," to being inherently human. But, do these Natural Human Traits explain all there is - when it comes to all of the ongoing wickedness around us? Or, could there be even more to this Time Honored Question, than we may subjectively observe? And from [precisely] where does it inevitably spring?

After all, despite our human imperfection, most people generally believe that there are strict Moral and Ethical Boundaries which should never be crossed. Even as we are equally aware, that functional human beings are capable of controlling their own Individual Free Will - under normally occurring conditions and circumstances. Moreover, the fact that most of us can do so under the possibility of Life and/or Death Circumstances - such as: emergencies, disasters, and wars - certainly bolsters this commonly shared and un-shake-able belief. And yet, seeming functional and completely ordinary people are continually being caught up in amazingly complicated and morally compromised positions. What's [honestly] up with that?

The Truth About God: He Has A Name

YHWH - "Yahweh" - name above all names.
The Judeo-Christian God referred to in the Sacred Scriptures has a personal name... and it is very important to His spiritually minded and true followers! These are those, of whom it is written: "They worship Him, 'In Spirit and Truth....'" His name is: "YHWH," or "Yahweh" [as pronounced in English]. This is the name of God [The Father] and to whom both: Christians and Jews confer the scriptural deferential of, "I Am Who I Am." In fact, YHWH literally means [all of the following]: "I Am," "I Am He," "I Am He Who Exists," "I Am All That Exists," and "I Am Everything Existent."

For instance, we read:
  •  "Then Moses said to God, 'Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name?' what shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, 'YHWH' [I Am Who I Am]. And He said, 'Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, YHWH has sent me to you." - Exodus 3:13-14.
  • "Moreover God said to Moses, Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: 'The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My Memorial to all generations.'" - Exodus 3:15.

Are Conspiracy Theories Found In The Bible

They say that, "Fact is sometimes stranger than fiction...."
Many people say that there are "Conspiracy Theories" found in The Bible. While yet others, claim that the whole book is just one very big conspiracy theory perpetrated by its writers and priestly led followers. But what do the scriptures honestly have to say for themselves, upon this all important matter pertaining to humanity? Are conspiracies to be found within the sacred scriptures... and are they merely theorhetical abstractions - to which we may honestly scoff? Wouldn't we all like to know "The Truth" found in God's actually documented word, rather than just someone else's personal opinions?

However, before we can determine whether there are conspiracy theories mentioned in the scriptures, it might be helpful to carefully define the compound term which we are looking for in its numerous verses. After all, it wouldn't do at all to fly off half-cocked into such an all-important scriptural investigation. Nor, am I noted for being that careless with the sacred scriptures... and I'm certainly not going to start doing so now!

  • A Conspiracy is when: "Two or more positional and/or situational equals, knowingly enter into a fully understood agreement, to practice any objectionable activity, concealed through the art of deception." 
  • A Theory is: "A hypothetical construct or speculative idea, which is based upon logical conjecture [rather than facts], and lacks in the prerequisite verifiable evidences or authoritative documentation to establish it beyond all doubt."
