In the wake of disasters like the earthquake in Haiti many ask the question: Is God an Arbitrary God? I just came across this interesting video that shows responses of a variety of theologians when that question was asked at the Transforming Theology conference last spring. Well worth listening to and reflecting on. I would love to hear your response.
It seems to me that the bigger question we should be asking here is: Can we understand God? or maybe When should we expect to understand God and when do we just need to trust God? – big questions I know but ones that we all grapple with and are often unwilling to admit to.
