Why didn’t you intervene?
Will it be ok?
Why does a church following the path of the most loving person to walk the earth seem to spew so much hatred sometimes?
You created love, right? So how can it be suddenly evil if that love is between two people of the same sex?
Seriously, cancer. Why?
Ditto miscarriage. I thought you were supposed to care about all life.
Also, why the wasp? What possible purpose is that for?
Some of the many questions that fill my brain. Don’t try and give me the answers, I’ve heard all of them…some good and some frankly crap. But even the best answer is only really a guess.
An impossible God.
So why bother?
Because of the impossible. Because God with us, God made flesh, God in our weak human form, is impossible. It’s not normal. It’s not how the story goes.
And then that same God, brutally murdered, the Creator at the hands of the created. Dying. And then rising. Because all that stuff that weighs us down doesn’t weigh him down. It’s not impossible for Him.
Maybe we try too much to answer the impossible. It’s good to explore faith, but it’s good to acknowledge when there just aren’t answers, and the whole damned house of cards is about to come toppling down.
Because that’s maybe when we realise the amazing truth. God with us. He gets it. And though we don’t see it now, one day he will be the ultimate glorious answer to all our questions.
Come, Lord Jesus.
