The God I Don't Understand

Alas eBook
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

This book began around our dining room table. I was drinking coffee with my wife and Gordon, an old friend of ours. We were talking about other friends and members of our wider families. Some of them were coping with really stressful circumstances or family tragedies of one kind or another. These were fine Chris tian folk, and so we fell to wondering about the strangeness of the ways of God and about why he allows some of his children to suffer greatly and others to have lives that seem virtually pain-free.
I mused that people are often quick to say, “That’s not fair”, when they or people close to them go through suffering that seems utterly undeserved, whereas I sometimes feel it is just as unfair that I have suffered so little in my own life while in my family I have siblings who have faced all kinds of stresses, illness, bereavement, and other agonies in theirs. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to explain such unevenness of experience, when all of us are believers. None of us is any better as a saint. None of us is any worse as a sinner. Yet God has permitted great suffering for some and spared it for others.
“I just don’t understand why God does that,” I said.
