I love the bumper sticker: “Jesus is better than Karma- you don’t get what you really deserve.” Is that unique to Christianity?

It’s not a sin to question God. Even Jesus did it on the cross: “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27: 46) The OT is full of God’s people questioning God. I do too. Most often I am questioning why good things have happened to me. Some of the best theology I know is found in Kris Kristofferson’s song:

Why me Lord?
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasure I’ve known?
Tell me Lord
What did I ever do
That was worth lovin’ you
For the kindness you’ve shown?

Lord help me Jesus
I’ve wasted it so help me Jesus
I know what I am
But now that I know
That I needed you so help me Jesus
My souls in your hand

Try me Lord
If you think there’s a way
I can try to repay
All I’ve takin’ from you
Maybe Lord
I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you

Lord help me Jesus
I’ve wasted it so help me Jesus
I know what I am
But now that I know
That I needed you so help me Jesus
My souls in your hand
