Where is God when Evil Visits?

It was a few days ago that great evil visited Newtown Elementary School in the form of a crazed maniac unleashing his personal hell on innocent children. And a great many people and pundits continue to wonder, “How can we make sense of this evil and where was God?” But we cannot and never will be capable of making sense of such evil because in it’s purest form hatred and evil is utterly irrational. But in today’s culture psychoanalysts don’t like the term “evil” because in their estimation all actions must be catalogued and accounted for somewhere in their flow chart of “disorders.” Moreover as to God’s perceived absence in the cultural tragedies of today, Mike Huckabee (whose every contention I don’t support) happened to say it best when he commented, “We’ve escorted God right out of our culture and we’ve marched him off the public square and then we express our surprise when a culture without Him actually reflects what it’s become.”

About StriderMTB

Hi, I'm Matt. "Strider" from Lord of the Rings is my favorite literary character of all time and for various reasons I write under the pseudonym "StriderMTB. As my blog suggests I seek to live out both the excitement and tension of a Christian walk with Christ in the 3rd world context of Asia. I started my blog as an unmarried man who was blessed to oversee an orphanage of amazing children in South-East Asia. As of 2022, I am a happily married man to an amazing missionary wife serving together on the mission field. I hate lima beans and love to pour milk over my ice-cream. I try to stay active in both reading and writing and this blog is a smattering of my many thoughts. I see the Kingdom of God as Jesus preached it and lived to be the only hope for a broken world and an apathetic church.
