A few years ago a family in our church was robbed at gunpoint. Three armed man confronted the husband in his own garage. The gunmen entered the home and made the family sit down as they rummaged through the house taking anything of value. Thankfully they left the family physically unharmed as they made off with their car – packed full with stolen goods. What are we to think as Christians? Where was God? Doesn’t God protect his people? Should we think about immigrating? Why doesn’t God just vapourise all criminals? Should we remain positive about the future of South Africa?
