-- six candles lit up the -- -- rose of Lima Catholic Church in -- town last night.
The church was filled to capacity.
Hundred stood outside praying and singing.
Try to make sense of the inexplicable.
Can be one of the most difficult parts of a tragedy like the one in Connecticut.
A lot of people turn to their faith to get them through the darkest days pastor Ed young a fellowship church choices now.
To help shed some light on what people might be going through in terms of having their faith challenger perhaps even raising questions about.
That would god allow such an evil.
Dastardly deed to be acted as we've seen yesterday pastor young what -- what do you say about that.
Well -- the heart of god because god hates to see this.
And obviously hurts our hearts doctor -- and think about.
What people are going through the families and the loved ones of those of those little children and adults who were taken.
And hear the question is why -- that's a tough question why did god allow this to happen we after -- though we have a freedom of choice.
So often our decisions.
Have grave consequences and -- someone makes a decision.
Like the killer did that is so heinous and so people it affects.
Innocent people so we live in a place it's not perfect and bad things happen to good people in God's very straightforward about that in his scriptures.
We'll pass try I am glad you mentioned descriptions because the president the commander in chief -- -- solar -- yesterday.
As he did again today but yesterday he quoted from.
From the White House scripture psalm 1473 to be exact he heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds sub.
How -- without how did that affect you to hear that from the president.
I think it was awesome for him to quote scripture and that's what we need to do we need to be in prayer.
We need -- to be ready and able to help those in need and we have to realize too that those little ones.
Or in heaven with the lord himself.
And we have to move after this grieving period from why to what.
Not just why me a bit in a while -- we -- what now.
And then the Bible tells us that god will take even hellacious things like this.
And use those things for his purposes are always understand that and I don't think we will until we get to the other side but that's what.
God tells us.
Many -- say that is the mystery of of god.
The Romans 1215 says weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn exactly so that's that's what ring asks do you by the president's so many other people saying.
Mourn with the community and pray with the community.
-- -- instinct to hell with things are going well so often we do not look to god or talked to god.
-- after tragedy were the first to blame god it's like god where were you in -- always worries been.
But it breaks the heart of god to see this.
Yet we're not married his robots we have a choice in the say our choices are just private is totally bogus because the choices and decisions that we make.
-- fact not only ourselves but others and innocent bystanders pastor Ed young we thank you for joining us today and sharing those.
Wonderful insights from the heart of god thank you.
