Facing the hard questions
The recent tsunami disaster in Southern Asia raises some very difficult questions for Christians and other religious believers. If God exists and is a loving god then how could he have allowed something like this to happen? The Guardian Unlimited's Martin Kettle asks these very difficult questions in his article How can religious people explain something like this? The question is not new (it has been asked for centuries) but is still relevant and just as difficult to answer. How do we, as Christians, respond to this question? We need to because it has historically been the one question that, perhaps more than any other, led people to reject Christianity and the existence of God. I'd be very interested to hear your responses to Kettle's article and this question. You can click on the Comments link below to add your thoughts. You can remain anonymous if you wish.
