Do you struggle with the question of how a loving God could allow so much pain and suffering in the world? You are not alone with these questions.

“In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

People as far back as Job have wondered why God allows bad things to happen. Many Christians have personal experiences with pain and suffering – either in themselves, or in their family, or in someone they know. Some people believe that Christians should somehow be immune to suffering. And when bad things happen to good people, it represents a crisis of faith. Why me? Why this? Why now? And those “why” questions are seldom answered satisfactorily.

Getting a fresh perspective on suffering can help you better respond to the challenges in your own life and can help you answer those difficult questions about the purpose of pain. It can also better equip yourself to deal with the inevitable pain and suffering that we all experience, either directly, or in the world around us.
