OK, I am going to try this again. Each Friday, I am going to expose our audience to another blog that I find interesting and valuable out in the blogsphere.

Today, I would like to introduce you to New Creation Person, a blog by Carl Gobelman. It is a confessingly Reformed blog that is well put together.

What I like most is his format on many of his posts. He follows a “Question” and “Answer” pattern that is very helpful and easy to read.

One of the questions is called: Is it OK to get mad at God? Here is his answer:

Question: What do you tell a person who is mad at God because He will not give her the kind of job she wants?

Answer:  This is a very interesting question.  The first thing to consider is whether or not this person is a Christian.  If she is not a Christian, then the most appropriate response would be to show Christian love to her by empathizing with her situation and try to take an opportunity to explain why God doesn’t necessarily grant every desire we have.  The unbeliever will never fully understand the things of God because their hearts are hardened toward him (cf. 1 Corinthians 2:14).

Want the rest, you are going to have to go to his blog.
