The Goodness of God and the Reality of Evil
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.
    Some Christians 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

   According 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.
    European papers 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.
    Islamic militants 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 strip.
    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.
