I read the eulogy given by one of the victims mother today. A 6 year old boy. I have 3 boys - 8, 6, and 16 months. Cried most of he morning thinking about.

One conclusion I came to: I just can’t believe a loving god would allow the slaughter of theses innocents. And if he does exist, I’m just not interested.

Your loss. Enjoy yourself.

But the One you're angry at died for each and every one of those children as a well as the perp. He was wholly innocent when He was murdered - more pure than even those children.

He's not in the business of interfering with man's freedom to choose. And when He's kicked out, like He has been in public school, He doesn't force his way back in. That's not real love. But, He IS in the business of redeeming the whole world by paying the FULL PRICE for ALL the sins of the WHOLE WORLD, past, present, and future. This is a love that is greater than anything we've ever known.

Those innocent children are in His presence right now, like the 60 million plus aborted babies - the victims of American infanticide that so many conveniently forget about. Jesus loves and has redeemed the little children in the midst of wickedness and evil and He loves you and I the same way.

Its so easy to love your “good child”. its easy to love God when all is well. its called faith. You will be tested. Read Job. This man was so tested. He never waivered.

Several Holocaust survivors I know well would agree with your first statement. But they are still intensely interested, as I suspect you are. If you weren't, you'd just invent some rationalizations and keep on rose-colored glasses.

Please stay honest. If God exists, he gave you a brain and a heart. Continue to use them.
