The tragedy of our day

19 December 2017

When we hear people blaming God for all the wars, the injustices and all the problems of the world, with questions such as ‘Why does God allow this?’, what they’re doing is crucifying Christ again, instead of crucifying themselves, with all their sins. Yet thanks to the most merciful God we can be set free of the feeling of guilt created by our sins. Herein lies the tragedy of our era: on the one hand, there’s humanity, which holds God responsible for the ills which afflict the world; and, on the other, there are Christians who begin to get to know God and want to make their own decision about whether to blame Him or the human heart.
