If God Exists, Why Do We Suffer?

  • Question 01
    Why might people believe their suffering is proof that God does not exist? Have you ever felt this way?
  • Question 02
    In your mind, how does the acknowledgement of realities such as “evil” and “injustice” prove God exists?
  • Question 03
    How does our free will show God’s love for us?
  • Question 04
    How does our free will explain the presence of evil and suffering?
  • Question 05
    How do natural laws factor into the presence of pain and suffering in the physical realm?
  • Question 06
    Does the presence of pain and suffering in this world logically prove God does not exist or that he is unloving? Why or why not?
