quote of the week, august 29-september 4, 2010

If we grasp a little better where we fit into the Bible's story line, how God looks at our sin, what our own rebellion rightly deserves, then although not all our questions about evil and suffering are answered, we are likely to face the wounding times with less resentment and indignation, and with more gratitude and trust, than would otherwise be the case. (Carson 2006:46)

  1. good quote! i think that when i understand that God wanted free loving relationship with us so much that He allowed the possibility of evil and all the wickedness that goes with it, i start to see a glimpse of just how glorious this relationship must be and how it must be 'worth' all the evil.
