Once a month on Dominick In The Morning, we talk to religious leaders from around Bozeman on the big issues. This morning Rabbi Ed of Temple Beth Shalom talked about the lord. I am a Christian and Rabbi Ed isn't. So a Jew and a Christian sat together and pondered the question, "Does God Make Mistakes?"

The rabbi explained when something happens one might look at it as a mistake, but someone else might not. He told a story about a mother rabbit who loved her new baby rabbit and took it outside to enjoy the sun. A hawk flew down and grabbed the baby rabbit and flew away eating it.

To the mother rabbit, God made a mistake. To the hawk, God just provided breakfast. So what some people think of a mistake, others may not. The rabbi also pointed out how God made everything, even disease, for a purpose. We just don't understand it yet.

My answer was much shorter. Does God make mistakes? No!


NEW YORK - AUGUST 20: A protester displays his thoughts outside of the building that is the proposed site of the Park51 mosque and cultural center, which is blocks from Ground Zero, on August 20, 2010 in New York City. The controversy surrounding the location of an Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero has escalated following comments last week by President Barack Obama to American Muslims that were interpreted as supportive. Despite polls showing national opposition to the center, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as other local politicians, communtiy groups and prominent Jewish groups, have voiced their support for the center.
