Thursday Thoughts - June 11

Divine action in the world is the subject of much discussion in philosophy, theology, and science. Lots of work to do here. For a long time now I’ve had questions about this issue. Here’s one example. Some Christian non-profits are certain that God is behind their funding and they survive, others are confident of the same thing, but go bankrupt. The latter then bemoans an absence of God’s action on its behalf (though somehow this is God’s will), while the former claims that God is acting faithfully to sustain it, (also God’s will). My wager, at the moment, is that God’s action or inaction probably has little to do with the survival or bankruptcy of Christian non-profits.
