Underneath our minor-key songs is a theology. A big view of God allows us to deeply wrestle with human emotion. Too often grieving Christians fall into the ditches of denial or despair.

    ‘We are living in an age of God and pain,’ he wrote. ‘the world today seems to be stretched out under pain.’ 32 It was in his Nazi prison cell that Bonhoeffer reflected that ‘only the suffering God can help’. 33 Moltmann’s theology of the crucified God has its earliest origin . treatment of the oneness of God in this book is designed to be simple; but the truths are profound, scholarly, priceless, and essential to the people of God and a lost world.

    Suffering (Theology) Most of the monotheistic religions regard some degree of suffering as the route to perfection or, at least, to self-improvement. Suffering is often connected to the spiritual advancement through hardship, the mortification of the flesh, penance, compassion, the notion of destiny (salvation and damnation) and ultimately, the.

This book should certainly be appreciated for its place in history, as a precursor of sorts to later and better formulations of the theology of the cross (I think, in particular, of Eberhard Jungel's 'God as Mystery of the World,' Jurgen Moltmann's 'The Crucified God,' and Douglas John Hall's 'The Cross in Our Context'), and for its particularity as a Japanese contribution to the conversation 4/5.

How does the book of Job help disciples of Jesus Christ remain faithful to God as they suffer—or walk alongside others who suffer—in ways that are extreme and inexplicable. Job is an obvious place to turn to when one is overwhelmed with pain, but it is easy for a casual reader to leave the book more mystified than encouraged.

Job is an easy candidate for the Old Testament’s most. According to the authors, “It is our contention that God relates to his creation in willing vulnerability. From his committed relationship with his rebellious creatures God experiences an inevitable emotional pain” (p. 62). They go on to say that there is a “theology of the suffering of God” throughout Scripture.

What people are saying immediate love implies intense intent love Isaiah Israel Japanese tragedy Jeremiah Jesus Christ Karl Barth Karl Holl liberal theology Lord love rooted Luke Luther man's pain Matt means mediated mercy /5(3).

Profoundly disturbed and invigorated by the perplexing phrase, "my [God's] heart is in pain," in JeremiahKazoh Kitamori delves and discovers an original theological crux: the pain of God. The pain of God is succinctly defined as the dissonance in God between his wrath to punish sin and his love to embrace the unlovable.

The existence of pain in our lives shows us our need of each other. Pain need not isolate us, but bring us together with an empathy that comes from knowing that pain is a currency which we all share.

Nevertheless, many people who experience chronic pain as a part of their daily reality do not reveal the extent to which they are affected by it. Any reader of this, his most famous book, will realize just how much Luther’s theology of the cross has impacted him and also, his teaching on the hidden-ness of God.

Probably Kitamori is best known in the West for this particular book in which he bases everything on two verses of the Old Testament Jeremiah and Isaiah The theology of the impassibility of God affirms divine impassibility that God does not experience pain or pleasure or in another expression God is immune to any emotions due to His sovereignty and independency.

As a matter of fact, Kitamori’s theology of the pain of God is an attempt to win theology that claims “God has no pain”. The fact that Young writes a novel doesn’t mean that he’s indifferent to how his readers think about God and their pain. In fact, the key to understanding why so many love his novel is it speaks so vividly about God and pain.
