Spiritual Help

It's the most natural thing in the world to want to blame God for what you've experienced. How could He let terrible things happen to innocent children? What kind of God is that? These and other questions can steer victims away from what should be their greatest source of comfort and healing. Is God to blame for what's happened--is He the problem? Or is He the answer...
