Learning from disease and death

Barry Maxwell shares some challenging thoughts on faith, disease, and death. Here's a sample:
God intends your disease (severe or not) to be a catalyst for seeking him. He may or may not cure you. In fact, he ultimately won’t in this life. He will let you die despite every guarantee of the world’s finest physicians. God sees to it we face the depth our sin, either now in faith and/or later in death. Will we die with disappointed faces as though we’ve been duped? Or will we rejoice that God promises to all in Christ: “Your dead will live; their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, for your dew is as the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits” (Is 26.19)?
Good questions.

Gratitous evil is one of the major stumbling blocks for Christians and those seeking out God. Addressing it in a coherent, cogent, irenic, manner would help us come to grips with this major stumbling block. I addressed this partially in sometime back and would appreciate if readers can input to that blog.
