Every time something really terrible happens – like the Sandy Hook school shooting last Christmas, where 20 beautiful, shiny-faced children, aged six and seven, were massacred in Newtown, Conn., along with six heroic women – the question emerges: How could a loving God possibly allow such a thing to happen?
For atheists, such catastrophes – from school shootings to terror attacks like 9/11 to the mega-genocides of Hitler and Stalin to natural disasters like Katrina and the recent typhoon in the Philippines – constitute ever more evidence that there is no God. Indeed, atheism’s main argument is: “If an omniscient, omnipotent and benevolent God existed, he couldn’t possibly allow such horrible tragedies to occur – therefore, God does not exist.”
While countless people have grappled with this problem over the millennia, its mystery is elusive. Rev. Billy Graham, addressing a mourning nation at the memorial service in Washington’s National Cathedral right after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, acknowledged the seemingly impenetrable nature of the question:
"I have been asked hundreds of times in my life why God allows tragedy and suffering. I have to confess that I really do not know the answer totally, even to my own satisfaction. I have to accept, by faith, that God is sovereign, and He is a God of love and mercy and compassion in the midst of suffering."
In the December issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine – with the help of Rev. Billy Graham, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Pastor Greg Laurie, Christian actor-director Kirk Cameron, former U.S. senator and prisoner of war Adm. Jeremiah Denton and others, as well as WND’s Joseph Farah and David Kupelian – the reader is delivered a thought-provoking and faith-strengthening exploration of that most difficult of issues: “WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE.”
Issue highlights include:
- “God and Sandy Hook” by David Kupelian, exploring the radioactive question: Where is the Almighty when children are murdered?
- “Where is the hope?” by Joseph Farah, on what the Bible says about facing real difficulty and tragedy
- “New film confronts most difficult ‘universal question’” by Drew Zahn, on Kirk Cameron's new film ‘Unstoppable’ and its journey of discovery
- “Why all the suffering?” by Greg Laurie, who lost his son in an auto accident, on the reason God allows hard times in the lives of good people
- “Billy Graham warns ‘Second Coming is near’” by Troy Anderson, in which the famed evangelist talks to Whistleblower just before delivering his “final, most important” message to the world
- “Graham on 9/11: Hope in the midst of great evil”
- “Atheism’s No. 1 argument” by David Kupelian, who explores God-deniers’ “gotcha” question: “How could a loving God allow the human race to suffer so terribly?”
- “3 reasons bad things happen to good people” by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who asks – and answers – “Why doesn’t God stop earthquakes and genocides?”
- “Celebrating Christmas in hell” by Admiral Jeremiah Denton, the famed POW's moving account of his encounter with God in a filthy prison cell
- “The Soldier’s Psalm.”
“This was not an easy issue of Whistleblower to put together,” says Editor David Kupelian, “But I believe it has turned out to be very meaningful and that it will deeply touch readers. That is certainly our hope.”
SPECIAL OFFER: For a limited time, subscribe to Whistleblower, renew your subscription or give a gift subscription for one year and you'll get $10 off (pay $39.95 instead of the usual $49.95), plus you'll receive two extraordinary free gifts:
First, you'll get the mysterious and inspiring new film documentary, “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah,” just released by WND Films.
A prediction of a world leader's death, a vision of the Messiah, a religious legacy overturned … make for an unmatched true-life thriller.
See the shocking story that a confounded media have ignored and covered up.
In the fall of 2005, the most famous Rabbi in Israel's modern history, 108-year-old Yitzhak Kaduri, announced on Yom Kippur that he had seen the Messiah of Israel in a vision. He insisted that the Messiah would not come until a prominent Israeli figurehead was dead. But why?
To add to the intrigue, Rabbi Kaduri wrote down the Messiah's name and ordered the note to be sealed and secured and not to be opened until one year after his death. Within a few short weeks the Israeli leader had a stroke and lapsed into a coma. A few weeks after that Rabbi Kaduri died.
A year passed. The note was opened. Kaduri's revelation of the name of the Messiah shook the religious world. Israel’s most venerated Rabbi declared that Yehoshua (Jesus) is the name of the true Messiah.
Why would Rabbi Kaduri put his lifelong reputation and legacy in jeopardy? Why would he proclaim that Messiah would not come until a certain renowned leader of Israel was dead? What does all this mean for the Jewish nation today? What does this mean for you?
Find out in this WND Films documentary, “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Prophecies of the Endtimes,” base on the book of the same name by author Carl Gallups.
Renowned messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, New York Times No. 1 bestselling author of “The Harbinger,” appears in this movie giving amazing insight into the Jewish mind, Hebrew messianic expectations and the profound nature of Rabbi Kaduri's amazing pronouncement.
Did the elderly, revered Rabbi actually have a vision from God? Did he really see the Messiah who is soon to come?
The story is shocking. The story is true. The story is still unfolding today. (A $19.99 value, yours FREE when you subscribe to Whistleblower!)

Second, you'll also receive one of our best Whistleblower special reports ever: "FINDING TRUE HAPPINESS IN AN INSANE WORLD."
Long the freest, wealthiest and happiest nation on earth, America has become the scene of wall-to-wall conflict and polarization, anxiety and depression, anger and violence, and – if you go to Washington, D.C. – subversion and tyranny.
This special Whistleblower edition not only explores these questions in-depth, but manages to shine a bright light on some life-changing answers.
"FINDING TRUE HAPPINESS IN AN INSANE WORLD" is an inspiring, challenging and cutting-edge exploration of what brings true happiness, wholeness and even holiness in a world that seems to be racing in the opposite direction.
"Faith, joy, hope, happiness – many of us have grown so doubtful and cynical in this godless era that we question whether these wonderful things even exist, let alone whether we can have them ourselves," says WND Managing Editor David Kupelian. "This issue of Whistleblower explores these issues in a refreshing and helpful way." (A $7.50 value – FREE when you subscribe!)
