One of the most challenging questions for believers is how God, who we’d like to think ensures the FAIRWAY, can allow for the destruction of innocents [see bike in photo]. This question is often dismissed with non-answer answers, e.g., “Who are you to question God’s plan?” and “God acts in mysterious ways.” While the horror of utter devastation lies underneath the day to day, ready to emerge any moment without notice, it is nevertheless there to be thought of as a constant challenge to our ordinary Judeo-Christian notions of a deity. Perhaps, as the rusted billboard frame suggests, these notions have seen their day.
