In Rememberance...And Still Pondering My Answer

I'm still sorting out how to answer the "am I a Christian" thing - which has turned more into a "do you believe in God" kind of discussion I think. In the meantime, I have moments where the question burns deeper and feels more critical than ever.

10 years ago, I was late to my first college class, glued to the television screen with my Aunt in horror as we watched the twin towers fall. Today my heart feels heavy in remembrance of that moment, grieving for family members and heroes lost in such a tragic event.

And in these moments I am reminded of the problem with evil. How could a God that is - by definition - omnipotent, omniscient, and perfectly benvolent allow such events to occur?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm the first person to ask such a profound question. All joking aside, has anyone - EVER - been given a satisfying answer?

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the fallen today. Lest we forget...
