Please Don’t Give Me a Christian Answer



There is a time and a place for our packaged Christian answers to what is going on in the world. And, there's a time and a place to just weep.

God does not need people like me to make sense of things that don’t make sense.

You’ve heard them, those packaged Christian answers. The ones that tie everything up in a nice neat bow, and make life a little too tidy.

Sometimes there just isn’t anything tidy about some things that happen in our broken world. For instance, things like shootings in schools and movie theaters are awful and sad and so incredibly evil.

God help me if I think I’m going to make things better by thinking up a clever Christian saying to add to all the dialogue. God certainly doesn’t need people like me with limited perspectives, limited understanding, and limited depth to give limited answers.

Yes, there is a place for a solid Christian answer. Absolutely, but there’s also a place to just weep with no answers at all.
