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...
Ron: Someone below sagely noted that, because we are contingent and finite creatures, our only real choice is WHOM we will serve. It will either be God, in which case we will enjoy the liberty of the sons of God, or the devil, in which case our lot will not be very enjoyable. Ultimately, we are just sovereign enough to decide whom we will serve, but not sufficiently sovereign to serve only our own selves. Well, OK, that is between you and me, and we are both believers. But what problem do the libertarians have with a libertarian god?
