Welcome to Comfort for Christians.

There is no greater comfort than the truth.

This is the personal site of Alec Satin, here to encourage you, on the web in various forms since 2003. View recent posts, peruse the writings, listen to a song or watch a short video of God's creatures.

Why do bad things happen?

Someone once asked the Lord, Who sinned? The man or his parents?

Jesus answered, Neither this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. (John 9:2-3)

No matter what you grapple with in your life, God's grace and goodness can be made manifest in you. This is his will for all his children.

May the things you find here be a help and encouragement to you now and in the future. -Alec Satin
