Suffering and the Will of God

Over at Faith and Theology, there is an ongoing discussion of a post on Cancer and the will of God. The article questions John Piper's claim that God had gifted him with cancer, see: Don't Waste Your Cancer. Neo-orthodox Barthians, olde-orthodox Calvinists (like me) and Catholics join the debate. It is interesting to read of the different approaches to God's sovereignty and the interpretation of Scripture. The Barthians content themselves with generalised Theological principles, while Evangelicals try to engage directly with the Scriptures. The discussion has now moved on to the question of whether Christ suffered in accordance with the will of God.
