Does it matter?

Even if the Christian god is real, he guarantees nothing. The wicked often prosper, and the innocent often suffer. Go to war, walk through gang territory or climb a glacier and there will be no special protection for you just because you are a believer. You may take comfort in believing that any pain you experience is only by God’s permission, but what difference does it make, especially if his reason for ‘allowing’ your suffering is beyond your comprehension? Is there any practical difference between “Stuff happens” and “God allows stuff to happen”?
