Big Fat Thorn

We've just launched a new series in Gathering here at CCC dealing with the Problem of Evil - and it got me thinking what a universal solidarity humanity shares through the experience of suffering. Everyone has a personal connection to suffering. Everyone! We'd better figure out why.

Researching the topic for our first session yesterday I stumbled over this guy on YouTube. He stopped me in my tracks! Something about the combination of his appearance and his keen mind drew me in. I wanted to sit down and talk with the guy to get where he's coming from.

Check out The Big Fat Thorn and give me your thoughts.

I'd like to respond to what he's saying and I'd like to hear from you. Does he have a point? Are we consigned to the conclusion that God cannot be the standard by which we discern the difference between good and evil? Is God the ultimate cause of evil?
