Atheists pound and pound and pound away at our faith in a God who allows evil and suffering to exist. Well, so be it. “Though He slay me, yet I will trust in Him.”
My trust is NOT that He will rescue me from this present disaster. My trust is that God is, in the end, ethical and just and true and that I will yet be justified in sticking to my faith in His honour. This I know and I know it absolutely. Sin, tragedy and suffering do not have the final say. Always, always and always God can and does bring good out of my difficulties.
