Dear FCC family,
i received a message earlier this week (i edited some of the strong language)
“I’m angry with God, and rapidly losing faith. I keep thinking about the injustice done to animals – 2 specific examples; the cat that was thrown down the block, kid only got a “stern warning” and the other is where someone complain and now many crows are being gassed to death.
I tell myself that maybe karma will catch up with these people but I know there’s no such thing. In fact many evil people always get their way and they live good lives doing their evil deeds
I am just one small person I can’t do anything to stop them!
And so I’m very upset with God, not sure why I even believe that he would do anything about it. Not as if they would get smote by lightning or something.”
Truth is, many of us have, at one point or another, felt something similar. Whether we felt angry, or disappointed because of injustice at what is happening around us, or helplessness about what is happening to us. We ask, “why does God allow this to happen?”
So this Sunday, in our preaching series “Faithfully” i want to explore the idea of God’s power and the traditional doctrine of omnipotence (as well as the problem with it). See you this Sunday!
