Why Is There Senseless Suffering?

Why does God allow evil in the world? Why didn't He create a perfect world? This 1-minute devotion addresses these questions. #BibleLoveNotes #Biblestudy

Why didn’t God create a perfect world with harmony between man, God and all living things—a world without evil, pain and suffering?

HE DID! 

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Genesis 1:31 

God created everything perfect. But Adam's sin brought evil, suffering, broken relationships, chaos, decay, sickness, and death into the world (Genesis 3). 

Because we're made in God's image, evil and suffering disturb us and we cry out to God for answers. 

We aren't capable of understanding all things here on earth. But we can be confident that evil never existed in God’s original creation, and God is never responsible for evil Himself (James 1:13-15; 1 John 1:5).

In addition, God has provided a way for us to live eternally without evil, suffering, and sin (John 3:16). We should not be amazed by suffering brought on by our sins. We should be amazed by God's loving sacrifice for our sins.

Isn’t it ironic that we creatures who brought evil and suffering into God's perfect world have blamed God for it ever since?

  2. It seems nearly everyone I share the Gospel with asks this very question - and I assure them it is a valid question and there are times I still ask that question, even livibg a faith life for more than 50 years. Thank you for writing about this crucial aspect of faith and giving scripture-based answers. Wraparound Blessings!
