The question about evil continues to pop up as a reason for people to “not believe.” It is very common for people to say that “I cannot believe in a God that allows suffering or evil.” This all concerns the question of theodicy. Theodicy basically probes the question “why does a loving God allow evil in the world?” This is a legit question and people are very often legitimately asking this because they are seeking answers. So . . . how do we respond?
Oddly enough, this question is concretely answered in Article XI of the Formula of Concord! Crazy! Thanks to Rev. Wolfmueller for putting this in front of us so succinctly!
This guy can’t wait to get to our next Kairos Network Mission Meeting! It will be May 5, 2018 at St. Mark Lutheran Church on Brockett Road in Tucker, Georgia.

The Lord be with you and see you there!
