When my son died I was filled with so much anger and sadness. I blamed God for giving him a heart defect, and I blamed him for letting my son die. For a while I turned my back on him. When the anger and sadness subsided, I realized that it was God who freed my son for the pain that he was in and that he allowed him not to suffer. Should I have turned my back on him? Was this the correct or Christian response to such a tragic event? Would a true Christian have done the same thing? Please remember that this is a friendly debate and in no way were my intentions to offend anyone who may be offended.
