God Suffers With Us

I always struggle with understanding how countless examples of humans' inhumanity against others is considered proof against God's existence. That inhumanity is a reflection of mankind's fallen state, not God's of desire for each individual. God's gift of free will is an inviolable determiner of God's role in each of our lives while on this earth. His focus on our souls is also a constant reminder that our fallen world is not the end of all things. Neither is our brief existence on this earth an accurate gauge of what eternity with Him will be like.
I can't imagine anything more painful for a person than the loss of one's child, and so I won't pretend that I can adequately express the horror of the savage murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

When such tragedies occur, most of us engage in sober reflection about the preciousness of life and especially of our own loved ones. As much as we hurt for the families who lost children at the hands of this murderer, we thank God our children are safe.

But we know it can happen to any parent; these victims did absolutely nothing to provoke this...
