Why God allows bad things to happen to good people.
This is the question that an unbelieveing world simply finds unbelevable. And I am not going to even pretend to know how God works, or why bad things happen.
But if you have "Still Paying Dues", The new P.O.D. DVD then you will have heard Sonny tell why his mom had to die of cancer. He says it took that much of a megaphone for Sonny to come to Christ. In other words, God wasen't getting through to Sonny so he used the death of Sonny's mom, whose dying wish was that Sonny come to Christ, to grab Sonny by the hand and lead him into the kingdom of God. Yep, God will go to those measures to get ahold of one person. And now because of that Sonny and his mom will be together in heaven.
I felt so much encouragement and joy from hearing that story and I realized that sometimes we are so closed to God's word that it takes tragedy to bring about change.
