In my work as pastor and hospital chaplain I'm constantly asked, "How can God allow such suffering in the world?" Faithful Christians die of cancer and heart disease; the military-industrial complex stages war-for-profit escapades in places such as Vietnam and Iraq, and thousands of U.S. service people are maimed or killed as a result; ISIS Sunni Muslims murder members of other faiths, and even other Muslims; bankers and hedge fund managers crash the economy, and while millions of Americans lose their jobs and homes as a result, the people responsible for the disaster enjoy their golden parachutes and never go to jail.
