After the tragedy this week, I wondered how long it would take for someone to use this as an opportunity to attack christians.
Seems Peter Cresswell is only too willing to take a crack. And here’s me thinking (well, hoping) that no one would sink that low.
I don’t know why, given the history of the world Peter thinks that a Christian believes they live lives protected from all harm. It’s a childish belief that Peter uses to build his own case for no God, and it is as a child he demands we believe him. Why? Because God does not always protect us from suffering!
A person’s faith is not a shield to protect them from harm, it is a belief we are loved by God no matter the pain and suffering we experience. In understanding this, it can help to try our best to offer such love and charity to others. The Christian message doesn’t have to get much more complicated than this.
