Because God was kicked out of our schools, all the little children were murdered in their school?
Some of the darkest of souls sit in the pews at churches every week. Houses of God filled with light? There is darkness everywhere, no matter if prayer is there or not. Some God-fearing, churchgoing people commit some of the most heinous crimes. Watch the news or the true crime shows sometimes, or just read about the many molestations through the years by the clergy.
Why do Christians feel as though God is not in the picture when something bad happens? He is all powerful and created the universe. How can he not have control over the bad things that happen on Earth? Light and love prevail no matter what — maybe not in the ways that we would like but in a grander way.
Sadly, even the most horrible things happen for a reason — a reason greater than we'll ever know while we're here.
