Cap Thoughts on Suffering and Sovereignty

By November 17, 2010Uncategorized

All the atrocities of man and judgments of God would appear appropriate and just if we apprehended the depth of the evil of sin.

God is so good that in His presence all the atrocities of man and judgments of God lose their terror and draw us into trust and praise.

All the contradictions of life — sovereignty and human responsibility, favor and suffering, life and death — are designed to lead us to God and into a relationshiip with Him. He will not have us settle for cogency or ease when it is His plan that we possess Him.

God has designed us to live with unresolved questions so that we would not rest until we have settled upon the unfathomable, unexplainable God.
