Greg Laurie: Why, God?

For a guy that just experienced what he has, the man has found some bold and strident ways to get cathartic. First, he preaches in his church the first Sunday back after the devastating news.

And now this introspective editorial, as seen in the Christian Post. It’s worth the read.

My favorite quote:

By questioning God’s goodness and love, I am in essence saying that I know more about it than He does. The fact is, God doesn’t become good because that’s my opinion of Him, or because I happen to personally agree with His actions or His words. Nor does He become good because we vote on it and all agree that is the case.

Man, if I lived anywhere close to this guy’s church, I would burn up a pew… and all that opinion has taken place in the past week. What a vessel of God’s grace. Live on, Greg.

    My heart aches for Greg and his family. Such a loss is devastating, even when you are confident of reuniting again in heaven. My prayer is that the roots of Greg and Cathe’s faith will grow stronger and deeper in Christ, that God’s Holy Spirit will minister and comfort them, and that good will come from within the midst of this tragedy. I believe that Greg has demonstrated in these few weeks that his stregnth and trust is in Christ. He is showing us how to put our faith in the One how holds our very lives in His mighty hands; remember, too, that those very same hands has our names carved in them. He will never leave us nor forsake us.
