When God restores our spiritual sight through the mystery of evil, we are then able to see the work of God displayed with in the framework of our most difficult question.  With tears of joy we bend before him.

In summary, for the Christian, evil is real, this world is real, and time is real.  Jesus recognized all three realities with reference to the blind man.  He pointed out that this world has built into it the component of time.  And upon the anvil of time beats the hammer of eternity until time ultimately reflects the values of the etermnal and willl be shed as a sheel, from within which ultimate truths will be freely embraced.  When we enter that stage, we will find out that the real anvil was eternity, that time provided the hammers, and that God’s glory and purpose will be what remains.
