Ultimately Our Evil is Too Profound to Make Sense

Tim Challies:
I began writing this morning hoping to find something profound to say, something that might clarify this crime in my mind. But there is no making sense of it, for evil doesn't play by our rules and doesn't give us a satisfying explanation for its ways and deeds. If there is a glimmer of hope it must be this: the promise—the sure and steady promise—that even the most evil events do not escape the eye of the God who is good. If he sees the fall of the sparrow, how much more does he see and care about the death of a man made in his image. And if he assures us that there were redeeming purposes in a murder even more ghastly—the crucifixion of his own Son—we can believe there must be greater purposes in this murder as well.
