Question
I've been studying a fair amount recently, and one thing I am still have trouble wrapping my head around is the concept that "God is good." From all the arguments I've heard on that, I seem to be able to make the same arguments in reverse. Maybe God is just pure evil. Just as it's possible that an infinite God created us to give us an opportunity for goodness, it seems just as likely that an infinite God could have created us to bestow evil. In terms of the Torah saying that God is good, He could have had that written just to provide the farce which inevitably will lead to a greater evil. How we can definitively know that God is good?

Question
Dear rabbi, with due respect I ask you this question: I think that crime (murder, corruption etc.) is increasing day by day. Now, I think there will be a day when everybody will joke at honest people - there will be millions of wicked people and very few, and maybe even only one or two honest people. But, at that time will Hashem save them? Or will they be tortured by the hands of the wicked people? Thank you.

Question
Dear Rabbi, I’m a 35-year old Jewish man with a very large hole in his heart. I was raised a Jew and still think of myself as a Jew. But I really don't know what it is to be a Jew. I went to Hebrew school and was Bar Mitzvah’ed. But for some reason I’m having trouble accepting faith in our religion. Where do I turn when the bottom drops out? Who do I talk to for answers that will sooth my soul? Can you offer suggestions? Thank you!

Question
I learned that every Jew has a portion in Olam Haba, because a Jewish soul is a piece of HaShem Himself. But I also learned that Gehazi, the servant of Elisha, has no portion in Olam Haba. Is it possible that a Jew, like Gehazi, doesn't have a portion in Olam Haba?

Question
Hashem shall fight for you, and you shall keep still. (Exodus 14:14) Is it applicable for every righteous person, or only for those people who crossed over the Red Sea at the time of Moses?
