Why does god allow suffering?
A @Christadelphians Video:
Evil and suffering We live in a world of evil, which brings with it much suffering. It is often difﬁcult, and sometimes impossible, to ﬁnd satisfactory explanations for particular and individual cases of evil and suffering, but the Bible helps us to understand the causes of evil, and how all suffering will eventually cease to exist in the earth. Evils can be placed into two groups: those which are natural occurrences, and those which are man-made. Natural evils are things like storms, ﬂoods, tornadoes, whirlwinds, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, accidents such as lightning strikes, and diseases, and the greatest of all evils, death. Man-made evils include violence, war, political and industrial strife, exploitation of people and of their environment, terrorism, immoral behaviour, which can lead to pornography, sexual violence, drug addiction, greed, and much else. All this will cease when the glorious Kingdom of God has run its course and God’s glory ﬁlls the earth, as He has promised many times (Num. 14:21; Ps. 72:19; Isa. 6:3; 11:9; Hab. 2:14). God, of course, cannot be blamed for the many wicked things that people do to other people, for these things are caused by the innate sinfulness of human thinking (Jas. 4:1- 12; Mk. 7:20-23). But the Bible tells us that the natural world is under God’s control, and that therefore the natural evils listed above come from Him. Why does God allow evil? It should be remembered that many good things that we take for granted each day also come from God our Maker. Jesus said, “Your Father Which is in heaven . . . maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust” (Mt. 5:45; cf. Acts 14:15-17; Ps. 104:10-24). So both evil and good are of God, as Job acknowledged (Job 1:21; 2:10). Other scriptures such as Isaiah 45:7 and Amos 3:6 attribute evil, as well as good, to the Lord God. The question remains, however, Why did God bring evil into the world with all the suffering that comes in its train?
