In the aftermath of the deplorable acts in San Bernardino and in Paris, the world is again asking: “God, why?”
The question calls for God to give an account of his benevolence in the face of evil.
But “God, why?” is the wrong question; it is too incriminating against God and too numbing to the sufferer. Better, we should ask: “God, now what?”
Evil is very complex. For those who do not believe in God, it’s easy for them to bear a great resentment against people of faith, those who believe in God, when such tragedies occur.
