As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
The fact that this man supposes he has so-called "free-will" is the very essence of prideful self-righteousness. It is not until a sinner realizes that he is fully deserving of Hell and that there is not one thing he can possibly do about it (not even faith), that is when a sinner is finally ready to believe on, rely on, and fully trust Christ as his/her only way they can possibly be delivered from God's just condemnation of the rest of humanity. Until such time, men remain in their pride that they can do some thing in order to approve their selves to God. While this makes the sinner feel good to make a "choice" for Jesus, the problem is that in doing so they deny the finished work of Christ, and at worst they deny Christ Himself.
