Radio Program for November 14, 2012 Please Don't Give Me A Christian Answer
Radio Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst
God does not need people like me to make sense of things that don’t make sense.
Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. You’ve heard them: those packaged Christian answers. The ones that tie everything up in a nice neat bow. And make life a little too tidy.
Things like shootings in schools and movie theaters awful and sad and so incredibly evil. Sometimes there just isn’t anything tidy about some things that happen in our broken world.
God help me if I think I’m going to make things better by thinking up a clever Christian saying to add to all the dialogue. God certainly doesn’t need people like me with limited perspectives, limited understanding, and limited depth.
Yes, there is a place for a solid Christian answer. Absolutely. But there’s also a place to just weep with no answers at all.
