EXPLORE GOD: Why Does God Allow Pain & Suffering?
Pastor Dean Monkemeier
2 Corinthians 4:8-10; Romans 8:18; 1Peter 5:9-10; Romans 5:3-5
- The problem:
- If there is a loving, all-powerful God, he would rid the world of evil now. Since he does not, there must not be a God – and if there is, he is either not loving or not all-powerful, either of which makes him unworthy of worship.
- The solution:
- There is a God who is all-powerful and who is loving, but who nevertheless allows real evil and suffering in our world for his greater purpose.
