Religion / 09.07.2009

I do not know God’s will but I can (hopefully) spot the logic of an argument about God’s will. That is what I wish to do today. I have been intrigued by a comment from reader Tahir on a post about Imran Khan. Tahir says: “It is beyond my understanding how Imran is dividing people. As far as religion is concerned, this division has been done by God.” Where do you go from there if you accept that as a valid starting point? It seems to me that if God has made the divisions (among and within religions), there must have been some purpose in doing so unless we assume that divine actions were without purpose – which is something we do not want to do.
