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...
Based upon reading some of your other columns, I wouldn't exactly call you a Christian, Hawkins. You have a tendency to be mean-spirited, petty and hateful towards those who disagree with you, so writing one column where all of a sudden you're this magical Christian thinker doesn't fly with me. And using the "God's Will" argument, when man has the ability to improve his circumstances, and improve outcomes by taking action instead of passively sitting back, or thinking that more guns and more people with lethal weapons is the answer is not exactly "Christian" thinking.
