Blaming God For Suffering

"What is less often asked is why our modern Western world, which has seen a decrease in human suffering unparalleled in human history, seems less able to deal with pain and more quick either to blame God for evil and suffering or to deny his existence altogether—or, as contradictory as it may seem, to do both at the same time. We seem to have lost our ability to adequately wrestle with this most persistent of problems; instead, with each decade that passes, we grow more and more angry with God, even as we believe in him less and less." ~ Louis Markos; Lewis Agonistes; p. 91

This is an important question.

May grace and mercy triumph, as we ponder this for eternity. God, in His love and omniscience, has the answer.

Blessings,
