Why we suffer may be the most troubling of all questions.
Atheists’ strongest argument is: How could a good God permit suffering?
It is important to know what the Bible says about this so we won’t lose faith or grow bitter.
Suffering is a complex issue. It has no single cause.
Sometimes we bring suffering on ourselves (1 Peter 4:15).
Often we suffer when another person chooses to do wrong (2 Timothy 4:14).
Sometimes God lets us suffer to bring about a greater good for others (Genesis 50:20).
Suffering is a required course in the Christian curriculum (Hebrews 12:4-11). Some lessons we never learn otherwise.
Here’s a comforting thought: Jesus came down here to suffer with us and for us. He understands like no one else (Hebrews 4:14-16).
