Today’s Compassion Wednesday post might seem a bit odd, maybe even a bit random. I guess it just stems from where my mind has been lately. Instead of a normal post, I wanted to point to a new page I have up on the site called Relationship Theodicy.
While I talk freely about my faith in God and Jesus in my blog, I don’t usually go into deep theological issues. However, I felt a need to post a page about what I had written in seminary concerning the question of God and evil. The page I’ve posted isn’t the entire paper I wrote, but rather the summary of what I developed as my own answer to the question “If God is all powerful and all loving, then why is there evil in the world”?
I know many who read this blog do not agree with me. They may not even believe in God or Jesus. That’s all right. If it offends you, I apologize. However, it is what I believe and I do discuss it without regret. I would love to talk about it with you either here, on my facebook page, or via email.
This page goes a long way in giving grounds to the purpose of my Compassion Wednesday posts. It answers a specific question, but it also shows the grounds of what I believe concerning the relationship between God and humanity, humanity toward each other, and humanity toward nature.
It is a long read, so I understand if you don’t want to slog through it. However, I hope you do. I hope you read it, and I would love to talk about it with you.
I don’t have everything figured out, I don’t know if I ever will. However, I’ll keep asking questions and exploring answers. Thankfully, God is more than willing to listen.
