Photo: Jackson in Nakuru, Kenya 2011 – a very good moment for me as a father to see my son loving and exploring this place together.
Tm Keller in his recent book on Suffering makes the argument that the Orthodox Christianity that has spanned the ages answers this question on suffering well…
Four beliefs found in traditional, Orthodox Christianity that are beneficial in suffering:
A. There is a Loving, All-wise, supreme God who is in full control
B. God became flesh himself to both suffer like us AND suffer for us
C. We can have assurance of our salvation. We can know this and not wonder with karma.
D. There will be a bodily resurrection for us like Christ’s. Material world will be fully restored.
Come and drink from these rivers of delight of Him…
