WHY DOES GOD ALLOW PAIN AND SUFFERING?
This is the 3rd in our Explore God series of Seven Big Questions. Like the Old Testament character Job, we don’t get an answer to the question: Why does God allow pain and suffering? Jesus simply tells us, “In this world you will have trouble.” Yet we can ask why nonetheless. Jesus did (Matthew 27:46.) We can also ask: How do we suffer well? Or… What can we learn from Jesus in how He suffered as we live with our own troubles? For Jesus is our leader in all things… especially through and in our times of suffering.
