    A very good perspective on the situation. This is a terribly sad situation, but like you said it’s important to remember this doesn’t surprise God, because he has a great plan for everything. I take comfort in that.

    What numbing heartbreak….

    Those questioning where God is in all of this….are they the same people who fight to keep God out of the schools?

      A thought that came to my mind: if there is no God and if we humans are merely temporary collections of molecules, then the behavior of the shooter is just the result of molecules moving which would imply that in an ultimate sense, he couldn’t help it. Atheists like Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking are thorough-going materialists who reject free moral agency. Things happen because of the molecules. If people want to use this tragedy to reject God, remind them where their decisions will take them.

        Made me think of a quote by CS Lewis:
        “Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It’s like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way it splashes itself will give you a map of London. But if I can’t trust my own thinking, of course I can’t trust the arguments leading to Atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an Atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.”
