God and the Evil in the World

29 Jul

Emil Brunner observes, wisely, that when we ponder the existence of evil in the world and remember the goodness of God, we must

… forego the desire to decipher out of the darkness His will for ourselves. The solution of the world riddle will not come until the day of salvation.

Any attempt to describe this event or that as the ‘judgement of God’ is wrongheaded.  We cannot say what we do not know.
