There is no question that the mass shooting of 19 children and two teachers in a Uvalde, TX elementary school was anything other than pure evil. And so, the question becomes, “Why wouldn’t God prevent such evil?” And “Is He not all powerful? Or is He not all good?” Theologian and pastor Dr. Jeremiah Johnston is expert in mental health and spiritual evil, and he says what most Christians, and people of faith, haven’t understood is that God, in the Bible does make a distinction between having the blues, depression, mental illness… and spiritual evil. They can all be intertwined, even on a trajectory. But it’s possible to have one without the other. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Dr. Johnston addresses all, as well as the issue of God’s presence during tragedy and that the Church should be doing a lot more to deal with mental health within the ranks of its own pews.
