A recent national poll asked “If you could ask God only one question and you knew He would give you an answer, what would you ask?” The most common response was, “Why is there pain and suffering in the world?”
If God is all-powerful then He should be able to eliminate evil and suffering. If God is all-good then He should want to eliminate evil and suffering. Yet, here we are in a world full of evil and suffering. Doesn’t this mean that an all-powerful, all-good God can’t possibly exist?
The dilemma is that we must accept either God is not all-good or He is not all-powerful, both contradict the Bible teaching of the nature of God. What if there is a third option. Could God have a good reason for allowing evil and suffering? I think so.
This Sunday I will share with you God’s reasons for evil and suffering. You will gain confidence and hope that God has your good and His glory as His ultimate goal. I continue a sermon series that I call “The God Questions.” Questions we would like to ask God.
