Notes from a Byzantine-Rite Calvinist

Theologians thinking through theodicy

Although I am not an academic theologian, I have recently been grappling with a seemingly insuperable problem which for centuries has stumped the best minds in Christendom: How could a good God be so slow to answer a prayer for patience? Proposed solutions may be left in the comments below.



  • Is an atheist simply impatient?

  • God's slowness is an example of patience. Patience has to do with delay.

    God and evil arguments claim that God allows evil in order that people may grow spiritually in wisdom and in strength.

    Slowness maybe for our benefit. Or there maybe no God. He is away on vacation or sleeping. If such comments are good for Baal, they apply also to Yahweh.
