Greater Purpose

Is God Really Good?

“Everything happens for a reason.”  It’s the mantra of our culture. We hear it almost daily as if it’s truth.

The Bible doesn’t say it.

The world says it.

This five word proclamation is usually a response to answer the question of why a bad thing happened.  It’s often echoed to offer “comfort” to those facing an unexplained illness or other horrible news.

Here’s what I know.  God’s character is righteous and when we believe he causes unrighteous things to happen in our lives, then we are believing that He is not all the way good.  I’m protective of my God’s reputation because I know Him and want to proclaim the truth!
