A Meditation on Faith: The Divine Plan

Beware any “authority”, creed, or enterprise that sweeps inexplicable suffering under a rug called “God’s will”.

This seems to me, at best, a misguided expression of powerlessness and despair… and, more often than not, just the self-serving attempt to rationalize indifference to a world rife with injustice.

What rational and decent person can possibly accept that disease, disaster, and other forms of violence that plague us only seem reprehensible? What rational and decent person can possibly accept that such suffering is part of some greater goodness beyond our limited intellectual and moral comprehension?
