Suffering: why?
.
If the world really was created by a God who is all-good and all-powerful, then why do the people of this world suffer so much?





Our Response
 

We think the world is presently not functioning as God intended. There was a rebellion against God that introduced evil as the source of suffering. God is permitting evil to exist only for a finite time, after which it will be destroyed; then all suffering will end.
