Clarity about God when innocents are killed

First appeared as a Web original on August 22, 2012

Sensibilities are shaken when congregants gathered in prayer become victims of a gunman’s malice, killing six, wounding and terrorizing others as happened at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin recently. It feels like an eerie echo of the 12 people who died and 58 who were wounded while watching a movie only weeks before in Aurora, Colorado.

But this I know: Despite the aggressive attempts of some religionists to claim otherwise, God does not kill certain people as punishment for other people’s sins. People who claim so in the name of Christ are misinformed about Christ.
