Why does God allow suffering?12
October 2, 2019 : Response to last week's topic by Pastor Tim Ahlman.
Last week, Pastor Jake posed the question, "hy does God allow suffering? Further, may I ask, does God cause suffering too?" Many of you responded and the discussion was great! Now, I'd like to respond via vlog, as we move from blog to vlog in our discussion.
September 25, 2019 : Topic introduction by Pastor Jake Boessling
Let's get real...suffering sucks. It does. It's hard. It's grueling. It's not something any of us invite into our lives. The slow death of a loved one from cancer can be too much to watch. The pictures of the real painful walk of a child in the slums of Nairobi to find dirty water to live another day leaves us speechless.
We have all asked it and probably still wonder, "Why does God allow suffering? Further, may I ask, does God cause suffering too?"
Leave your comments, thoughts and conclusions. Then look for Pastor Tim to answer this question next week.
