one of my best friends in the world is about to have a baby. and we say, "Praise God. thank you for this miracle of life. great job, God." rightly so, i guess.
but when a couple of insane idiots go on a shooting rampage in Washington DC, we defend God and say, "that's evil in the world. God had nothing to do with that. He's good. and since that was very, very bad - there's no way He was involved."
it seems just a little whack. am i right?
can i safely believe that everything good that comes in life is from God? james 1:17 says so and it's easy to believe.
or does one egg just happen to meet up with one sperm to create a life. nothing Devine, just science doing its thing.
that makes complete sense to me too.
so what events are God-appointed and which ones aren't? how are we to know?
let's get to the point of it all. did God have a hand in noah dying? or was it just a freak DNA accident?
i guess i'm just wanting to know how much of this is God's fault, so i can adequately blame Him for what He was responsible for. but i'm, clearly, having a hard time reconciling it all.
my worldview is straight up getting turned on it's head.
i'm clumsily trying to find the walls in a completely pitch-black room. it's virtually impossible. kind of like making sense of God's ways.
so i surrender.
