Have you ever asked yourself, “why do bad things happen to good people?” DO you find yourself being mad at God in times of crisis or feeling like He has abandoned you? How do you feel about asking God for healing?
If you have ever gone through any kind of tragedy, you know these questions all too well. That’s why this week, we invited Thomas Jay Oord, Author of God Can’t on the show to address this common, yet so deeply painful topic. Thomas’ book speaks life into our tragedy and paints a picture of God that we can relate to in a more intimate way.
Topics we talked about:
Sin and judgement.
Why do bad things happen to good people?
does God punish me?
guilt vs shame.
demonic entities vs Spiritual forces.
Does God allow bad to happen to his children?
Victim blaming for lack of healing.
faith and it’s relation to healing.
