Is This Really True?
It’s a strange sounding text. This plain declaration of Scripture runs head-on into our own experiences, which are filled with unexplained suffering and pain and sorrow and evil, and we want to cry out, “How can this be? How’s it possible that God is working out good when the world’s filled with so much hatred and evil, and when decent folks—hard-working and well-meaning and helpful—suffer every day? When there’s so much apparently gratuitous evil?” So, is this really true?
