This week for the Discussions we’ll be diving into some specific questions that have come in from our viewing and listening audience. Questions about God, the Bible, faith, pain and suffering? All topics are open for the discussion this week. Feel free to chime in if you want via Google + or our SND Face Book Page.
The Problem of Evil! Tune in tonight at 8p Central as we look at this profound question. If there really is a God and a God that is good, then why is there evil, suffering, and pain in the world? Where does it come from and where is it going? Will God remain silent and can anything be done?
It’s Monday morning after the evil tragedy in Newtown, CT and I’m still somewhat at a loss for words. It’s funny as I work with words on a regular basis. But sometimes they just don’t come. I’ve not been glued to the news and I’ve actually just shut it off a few times. You see, I know what they’re going to say. No, not the specific details that are coming out, I don’t know those, but I know the bottom line. The story will be the same and I just want to cry when I hear the fine points of little children being cut down in a safe school classroom in a quiet community. The story will be the same that has been played out in all kinds of places in all kinds of scenarios since the day Cain struck and killed his bother Abel. I just saw from a friend’s email that the story was played out again last night in another shooting. The story of evil in the world will be the same. While the magnitude will rise and fall; the story of evil will always be the same.
