Pyschology and Faith Forum

Friday, May 30, 2014

12:30 - 1:20

Demaray Hall, 150

Speaker:  Marcia Webb, M.Div., Ph.D.

C. S. Lewis once described his fear of “coming to believe … dreadful things about [God]” after his wife died.[i]    The experiences of loss, stress, injustice, and suffering among believers is not unusual. In response to these events, believers may begin to doubt God’s love or goodness and instead feel anger toward God. Research shows that while most people experience anger toward God at some time, many are ashamed to admit to these feelings. They may then struggle not only with the pain in their lives, but also with guilt and confusion in their relationships with God. In her presentation, Dr. Webb will discuss the psychological challenges of anger toward God, as well as biblical texts where the faithful felt betrayed by God and expressed their hurt and frustration. She will also describe psychological processes in the resolution of this struggle with God, and biblical texts which examine God’s responses to the anger of his beloved.
