SPEAKERS IN FEBRUARY
“Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?” (Gen. 18:25)

When there are mysteries in life too deep for us to fathom, we can relax in the confidence that the Judge of all the
earth is the God of absolute and infinite righteousness.

There is the question of the status of children who die before reaching the age of accountability. For many of us, it is
enough to know that “of such is the kingdom of God.” We believe that they are safe through the blood of Jesus. But
for others who are still not satisfied, the words of our verse should be sufficient. God can be counted on to do what
is right.

There is the perennial problem of election and predestination. Does God choose some to salvation without at the
same time choosing some to be damned? After the Calvinists and Arminians have all had their say, we can have full
confidence that there is no unrighteousness with God.

Again there is the seeming injustice that the wicked often prosper while the righteous are passing through deep
tribulation. There is the recurring question as to the fate of the heathen who have never heard the Gospel. Men puzzle
over why God ever allowed sin to enter. We often stand dumb in the face of tragedies, of poverty and hunger, of
horrible physical and mental impairments. Doubt continually murmurs, “If God is in control, why does He permit it all?”

Faith replies, “Wait till the last chapter is written. God hasn’t made His first mistake. When we are able to see things
from a clearer perspective, we will realize that the Judge of all the earth has done right.”

God writes in characters too grand
For our short sight to understand;
We catch but broken strokes, and try
To fathom all the mystery
Of withered hopes, of death, of life,
The endless war, the useless strife,—
But there, with larger, clearer sight,
We shall see this—His way was right.

John Oxenham
