Having Enemies

Winston Churchill, you have enemies good

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life. 
Winston Churchill

There are a number of reasons why leaders will have enemies... and not all of them are good reasons.

1.  You may have an enemy because of poor, inept leadership and the decisons flowing from such leadership that makes things hard for others.

The Problem of Evil and God's Love

It is a Painful Problem and a Deep Mystery

God and suffering, theodicy, problem of evil

I provide this first image - not to offend anyone, but to put it in simple, graphic images. This is how many non-Christians think about God and suffering. How can there be an all powerful God and an all loving God and suffering. Does God care? Does God notice? If he does - then why doesn't God DO SOMETHING ABOUT EVIL?

I can't begin to deal with this greatest of questions and most painful of problems in a post... or even a series of posts. This question-problem has occupied the minds of the greatest thinkers (both religious and non-religious) through the long centuries.
