In this article I will work towards an answer to the question ‘How can we know the will of God?’ Christians are interested in God’s will. In church we regularly pray the Lord’s Prayer, ‘Your kingdom com, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ Often we face puzzlement about this will of God business. Is everything that happens in the world the will of God? Is life like a scripted drama and we are actors in a divine comedy for the entertainment of God? Is evil and suffering God’s will? Where does human freedom come in?
