“We don’t know the reason that God allows evil and suffering to continue. But we know what the reason isn’t. We know what the reason can’t be. It can’t be that he doesn’t love us. It can’t be that he doesn’t care.”
“Because he got involved with his Son. Christianity alone tells us that God lost his Son in an ‘unjust attack.'”
— Rev. Timothy Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian in NYC, from his sermon preached on 16 September 2001, following the tragedy of 9/11.
Praying for those who, years on, may still experience much earthly sorrow.
