How can God allow suffering?
‘If there is a God of love, why is there all this suffering in the world?’ That question is often asked. Some people claim that the problem of suffering prevents them believing in God; others use suffering as an excuse to hide behind. It helps them ignore God’s existence and Christ’s claims. This booklet examines what the Bible says about suffering and points to the hope it offers to believers in Jesus of a new heaven and earth where there will be no more suffering.
