Given all the discussion lately on the topic of suffering, and as I continue to (wait for enough time to) put some finishing touches on a larger article that takes a closer look at that subject, I thought this quote was timely.
“While Western atheists turn from belief in God because a tsunami in another part of the world caused great suffering, many brokenhearted survivors of that same tsunami found faith in God. This is one of the great paradoxes of suffering. Those who don’t suffer much think suffering should keep people from God, while many who suffer a great deal turn to God, not from him.”
Food for thought. http://a315.co/Z5BZu8
