January 22, 2010. When suffering hits where it hurts, we naturally want answers. But, says Fr Thomas Williams, sometimes we ask the wrong questions.
In a one-hour video (click here to view), Fr Thomas Williams talks about his new book Can God Be Trusted? More specifically, he expands on the difficulty of trusting God in tough times.
Fr Thomas discusses the natural human reaction to betrayal, and comments on how some respond to suffering by downsizing their hope in God and becoming “realistic”
Addressing this problem, he says that this loss of trust sometimes results from a case of misplaced expectations, as we hold God accountable for promises he never made. At the same time, he says, we may also fail to grasp the greatness of God has promised.
Part of the key to trust, then, is to understand God’s place in our lives a little better—and to ask the right questions.
For anyone who has ever struggled with trust, this is a must-view video that is realistic, insightful, and encouraging.
Hmmm, now it's our fault because we think it is God's fault?
Yeah, let's take a look at Fr. Thomas....
UPDATE: Remember this quote in the video: Interviewer: "So you think all these men are lying?"
Fr. Thomas: "Yes, I do"
So he called them liars. This is a bit beyond issues of betrayal, high expectations, and trusting in God. This requires restitution of the good name of others. And it has not been done.
