    Great post Ben, and likewise Jane Gibb for the similar one. It is very thought provoking, even though we are so far removed from those tragedies, geographically speaking. I still struggle to come up with an answer to why God allows these tragedies to happen, especially when non-Christians ask the question. As a Christian, I know that the curse exists and that sin is the real problem but it is hard for me to answer without sounding a bit trite.

    Yes and I think we will always struggle in this, since we are limited in our understanding. But events like this show our real need for the Gospel and to share with others in a way which may acknowledge our limited understanding but honestly point to God’s revelation through Christ.

    What may seem trite to us is exactly what the non-Christian needs to hear. Of course, we can always improve in how we say it…
