Pain, Suffering and Evil - Part 1 - Why Does God Allow It?

Pain, Suffering and Evil – Part 1 – Why Does God Allow It?

Why does God allow pain, suffering and evil in the world? And why is it that suffering sometimes causes people to turn away from God? I believe we’re not dealing with a problem that needs to be solved – rather, we’re dealing with a mystery to be understood.

My purpose in this podcast is for us to gain understanding and make sense of the pain, suffering and evil around us. This topic leads to a very important question we should all ask ourselves – What is the ultimate good in life? Please tune in and join us!

Next week in Part 2, we’ll deal withhow to prepare for, and then respond to pain and suffering when it enters into our lives.
