In our grief we try to punish God by not believing in him. When we lose someone or something that means a lot to us, we go into a time of grief (whether we admit it or not). Part of grief is anger, often directed at God. Some of us were taught that anger is wrong, espesially directed at God. Yet the anger remains inside of us; maybe the only way to express it is to shut God out. “I refuse to believe in you because you let this happen.” But it’s a temporary solution. God is not easy to get rid of!
