We can apply this historic event to the most mundane parts of life and the most striking, horrific events that take place around us. We see racism, war, the murder of the unborn, and poverty. As we stare into the glaring eyes of injustice, we long for true and lasting justice and for God to act in times of desperation. If God is in control, why is this happening? If God is all-powerful why doesn't He stop these injustices? If God is holy and good, why do these evils not only exist, but seem to dominate?
Called back into suffering.
