HP asked me the other night why if God is in control He lets people in other countries starve while we in America are fighting obesity?
The best I could come up with (on the spot) was: God is in control, and He gives us the ability to choose. The government (and people) in other countries are choosing to let others starve. Americans are choosing to be obese.
I followed up with: God is in control and by being in control He gives us the ability to choose. Everybody wants a choice and they want God to be in control and ‘take all of the bad things away’. We can’t have it both ways.
Anyone have a better answer? Or a thought on mine?
