Problem of Pain

The issue of suffering is one of the biggest reasons people stay away from God. Many today are convinced that the problem of pain and suffering tells us there is no God. We all know things aren’t the way they should be but we have no answer for how that can be changed. Christianity does not answer all of our questions about pain and suffering and God, but it is incredibly realistic about how messed up our world is. It also tells us that we are not alone in our suffering, that our God, himself, has suffered with us and for us. Jesus identifies with our pain.
