Actually, it makes more sense than the proposition that existence has no meaning whatsoever and everything that exists just does as a brute fact without purpose. That would mean all the human suffering and life itself is purely empty and devoid of any significance or meaning, and any real sense at all.
All those individuals who suffered grievous torture and death at the hands of Nazis and Communists will have no justice, no reprieve and no redemption to any promise of life and justice after death. Their suffering was entirely for naught. Every child who is born with a horrendous condition or suffers from debilitation or serious disease, that is all they will end up having. No meaning or sense to be made of it at all. Every pain, every sacrifice you have endured, every ache of heart will ultimately have no reason or no explanation, just cold indifference as far as existence is concerned.
What we do know with great certainty is that Jesus did walk as a human being some 2000 years ago. We also know with certainty that Jesus claimed to be God walking among us. That is the only way his crucifixion makes any sense. The Romans didn’t crucify individuals who went around spreading messages of love and peace. Neither would the Jewish Sanhedrin have seen someone spreading human “good news” as a threat to them or as an issue. If Jesus truly was God and he let himself be crucified – then we know that God does have infinite concern for each of us and that our sufferings and sacrifices are his sufferings and sacrifices – God himself bore and eternally bears our sufferings with us.
The great mystery regarding our suffering is reflected back to us when we consider why God – the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and all that exists – would permit himself to undergo that kind of torment seemingly unnecessarily when he didn’t need to.
Why he does not simply reveal everything when we demand to know is a lesser mystery, but it all boils down to whether we trust God (and trust that existence Is ultimately meaningful and purposeful) or we don’t. The alternative is, in the end, nihilism. I have tried it, it leads unquestionably and literally to hell.
