Until this point in our series, we’ve heard some great news:
• God really is there and I’m not God, which sets me free from worry
• God loves me, which sets me free to enjoy Him and His creation
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but have you notice something is seriously wrong with this picture?
Now, if those two things we learned these past two Sundays are true — as Roy and Jan said and as the Bible teaches — then why is the world so obviously messed up? Why do people do horrible things to one another? Why do people die of disease and natural disaster? As one commenter on my blog asked, How do I reconcile what happened in Haiti with “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life”?
It seems as if something CAN go wrong in this world, it WILL. That guy Murphy was on to something.
