The Problem of Evil and Some LDS Perspectives

Shame and Anger: A Response to Small Miracles in a World of Big Pain and Evil Latter-day Saints and other Christians I know sometimes share faith-promoting stories of how a prayer was answered or how they experienced a miracle of some kind. These miracles are rarely the bigger and more dramatic ones we would like to see, such as finding a cure to cancer or a way to heal Ebola.Yet these small miracles can be real and may be received with gratitude from the recipient, for whom the miracle may play an important role in strengthening faith or solving real problems.
