Republishing on August 22, 2015. And we can stand face-to-face with the problem and we can back off of that problem and say, “Now wait a minute, not only is my God good and right and never does anything wrong, and not only does He love me and care for me, and not only is He the kind of a God who is absolutely, eternally righteous, but something else about Him, He’s also absolutely and eternally faithful.
