What About Suffering?

What About Suffering? 

Why do bad things happen? Where is God when we suffer? How should we respond to suffering?

Six reasons why:

  1. Fallen creation
  2. Sin in the world
  3. Other people’s sin
  4. Unwise choices
  5. The devil
  6. Your faithfulness

God doesn’t cause suffering:

  1. “Acts of God”
  2. Suspended judgement
  3. Creation continues
  4. Human free will continues

God is with us – Hebrews 14:15-16

God makes use of suffering – Romans 8:28

We also recorded a midweek podcast for this message, responding to some specific questions. You can listen to it here.

You can also buy a copy of the What About book from the 2016 series which contains six ‘What About?’ topics: voting and politics, money, God’s judgement, homosexuality, gender roles and the church.
