Here’s a new video we’ve created that addresses theodicy, or the ways God works in our lives, and the idea of redemption. The current conversation associated with theodicy suggests that God interacts in our world in three ways: prevention, intervention, and redemption. He prevents some things from happening and we really have no way of knowing when, just that it’s less than 100% of the time. We may be able to discern His intervention, but it’s still less than 100% of the time. Redemption, however, is 100%. All is redeemed. And that is God’s promise to us.
Ron Keck has written several small-group Bible studies in the God + the Arts line (Finding Jesus in the Movies, Finding Redemption in the Movies) and created the MORE series released by Serendipity House. “Redemption” is a word that gets thrown around a lot. It wasn’t until a few years back that I really got it—that God redeems it all. The impact this can have on our formation and our understanding of freedom is fascinating.
