Facing Evil



Ultimately Christians will take refuge from their questions about evil not in proud theories that explain evil away, but in combating evil, opposing it, especially evil within themselves but also in the larger world as well. Christians will take refuge from their questions about suffering not in bitterness, self-pity, resentment against God, or trite clich├ęs but in endurance, perseverance, and faith in the God who has suffered,who has fought with evil and triumphed, and whose power and goodness ensure that faith resting in him is never finally disappointed.
