Why Does a Loving God Allow Suffering

Why Does a Loving God Allow Suffering

Hebrews 11:1-2; 8-19; 32-40 

Probably the most frequently asked question from the dawn of time is Why does a loving, all good God allow suffering? Situations change but the question remains the same around suffering: Why are babies born with terminal diseases? Why did those young children have to die in Newtown at the hands of a madman? Why did God allow all those people to die in the tornado in Oklahoma City? Why did the action of that drunk driver take the life of that innocent young person? Why does that young, single mother have cancer that may result in her death? How come the evil tend to prosper and I struggle everyday? After I have served you my whole life, why am I suffering so many challenges in my remaining years on earth? These and other questions seem to fill our lives in so many ways and deep theological answers do not seem to begin to heal the wounds caused by so much suffering and pain. In this third week of the fAQ sermon series, we will look at these and other areas and to see if there is any sense and purpose in suffering.
