do not judge Him please…

tear-eye-leaves

At 6 p.m on December 16,. a grieving town packed the gym of Newtown High school for an interfaith service.  They were there regardless of their faith and religion to reach out in desperation  for God.  President Obama appropriately used the Word of God to comfort these hurting people:

Do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly, we are being renewed day by day.For light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all, so we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven not built by human hands.

As people tried to find solace and comfort in God, there are also many who tried to explain why God let this tragedy happened and have flooded the internet with articles and postings.  I do agree that we are responsible for our choices and actions, and yet I found some statements quite appalling.  To say  there is s so much violence in schools because God is not allowed there  belittles God and made Him helpless and powerless.  I am not a theologian, but I know that no security systems, no human endeavors can keep Him at bay.  He is God of all flesh and nothing is impossible for Him.

With all these theories going around, the best I heard these days came surprisingly from  one CNN reporter. He implored those who questioned God to remember that He did not commit this horrendous crime, but a man did.

 So please, stop judging and scapegoating Him.

If He can be explained, then He is not God.

  1. Wonderful post! Regardless of the law, God can’t be removed from any location. We may not be allowed to pray aloud in school, but there will always be teachers and students who continue to pray. This horrible thing happened because Satan plants evil in the minds of people. I like your last statement!
