Why does God let bad things happen to good people? Are there any good people? Am I asking the wrong question? Why does God let good things happen to bad people? How do I explain God’s goodness in light of human suffering? Does evil disprove God’s existence? Is God willing to stop evil but unable? Or is it that God is able but unwilling? Are my choices the cause of my suffering? Is God punishing me? Does God care about me in my suffering? Such are the questions that we are faced with when encountering suffering. If you or a friend or family member have ever faced questions like this, we invite you to investigate this seven-week series on the Problem of Evil.
“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world” – C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
