It's an idea that seems to be gaining traction, or maybe I have just become more aware of it, i.e. the idea that Father did not forsake Jesus on the cross.

A quick google search turned up a couple of arguments against the idea that God forsook Jesus on the cross here and here.  One article is more convincing than the other, but I have a question for "anti-forsakers".

When Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?", would the Sinless One not have sinned unless that were true?

 Does a toilet represent a bad day?

I have noticed more and more that I tend to choose the pleasant way, the secure and comfortable way - the way with the most to gain and the least amount of effort - all for a life of uninterrupted contentment and satisfaction. And should this dream of a continually pleasant life be rudely broken in upon by a "bad day", I get angry.

No, I'm not alone in this. All of us expect a good life. It is our right!!! or so we believe. But the truth is if we have no bad days, or weeks or months or even years...something's wrong.

How can I say this?
