Ep.502: Why Does God Permit Suffering?
The Biblical answer to evil reigning in the world
No human being wants to see suffering and pain. I think that we all cringe inside when we look upon someone who suffers. We want to take their pain away, we want to help, we want to make it stop. Whether the pain is of their own doing or not, humanity has compassion on those who hurt. Here then rises a very important question. If we are created in the image of God and we have this deep compassion, then why does God NOT seem to have it? And, if God is who we say he is - the Almighty Creator - then why does He not put an end to such things? On this program we will attempt to look at these things squarely and see if we can find a comprehensive and sensible answer to these questions in the Bible. Why does God permit suffering? Stay with us - it is going to be quite a journey!
