The Goodness of God and the Reality of
By Albert Mohler
Every thoughtful person must deal with the problem
of evil. Evil acts and tragic events come to us all in this vale
of tears known as human life. The problem
of evil and suffering is undoubtedly the greatest theological
challenge we face.
Most persons face
this issue only in a time of crisis. A senseless accident, a wasting
disease, or an awful crime demands some explanation. Evil showed
its face again as Hurricane Katrina came ashore on the Gulf Coast.
For the atheist,
this is no great problem. Life is a cosmic accident, morality
is an arbitrary game by which we order our lives, and meaning
is non-existent. As Oxford University’s Professor Richard Dawkins
explains, “human life is nothing more than a way for selfish genes
to multiply and reproduce. There is no meaning or dignity to humanity.”
For the Christian
Scientist, the material world and the experience of suffering
and death are illusory. In other religions suffering is part of
a great circle of life or recurring incarnations of spirit.
simply explain suffering as the consequence of sins, known or
unknown. Some suffering can be directly traced to sin. What we
sow, so shall we reap, and multiple millions of persons can testify
to this reality. Some persons suffer innocently by the sinful
acts of others.
Katrina: Another Wake Up Call?
Commentary by Steve Kellmeyer
to nearly everyone, New Orleans got nailed because of sin.
This isn’t just the opinion of the evangelicals. It’s the
opinion of atheistic liberals as well.
assert Katrina was the punishment
the US received for the sin of failing to sign onto the
Kyoto accord. Robert Kennedy Jr. wrote a column saying Katrina
happened as a result of and punishment for Gov. Barber’s
(R-MS) work against the Kyoto Treaty. Other American Democrats
say the sinner was President Bush. He sinned by sending
troops to Iraq instead of spending the money on flood control
measures in New Orleans.
believe Katrina was Allah’s punishment for the Iraq war.
Others suggest the hurricane was God’s punishment on the
U.S. for cooperating in the removal of Jews from the Gaza
A Catholic pointed
out four years ago that Galveston, on the other side of
the bay, was destroyed by a category-four hurricane that
arrived in 1900 after the city hosted a Mardi Gras with
a costume theme of ‘Beelzebub and the Devils.’ (http://www.spiritdaily.org/New-world-order/neworleans.htm)
Ryan Lee points
out that Katrina, the name means pure,
struck New Orleans on the feast of the beheading of John
the Baptist, just two days before the scheduled start of
the 34th annual Southern Decadence festival, a six-day public
homosexual orgy that New Orleans was supposed to host from
August 31 to September 5th . The Baptist, you will remember,
was beheaded for having told the king to stop debauching
himself with his brother’s wife.
So, no matter who
you ask, everyone seems to agree that New Orleans had it
coming. The primary difference between all of these commentators
is “Why?” The Christians think New Orleans got slammed because
the inhabitants of the city sinned. The atheists, pagans
and Muslims think New Orleans got slammed because people
outside of New Orleans sinned.
