5 Biblical Reasons God allows Suffering

We all face suffering in some way, shape or form. In our pain, we long to know why God allows grief and hardship into our lives. It’s common to wonder if our suffering is God’s Will. People often hold only one view of suffering; however, the Bible does not have one approach to suffering but many.

BEHOLD THE MAN – PART 3

When we are dealing with such an in-depth topic of the human condition, I believe that the subject matter itself outweighs a simple approach to this subject. We must be careful that what is being said supports the topic clearly. There is no easy approach to looking at what makes us human.

KINGDOMS IN CONFLICT

Physical battles involve spiritual ones, and it works in the opposite as well. We must recognize that it is only the Gospel and the sight of Jesus in his saving grace that can give us faith and genuine obedience. Command and threats are part of Scripture, and we need to acknowledge them, and when we do so, we will more deeply feel our need for Jesus Christ, but commands and threats, even when nicely issued as helpful suggestions, cannot fill our sails with faith, hope, and love. Apart from the Gospel, the law is the most terrible burden and can lead us to either despair or the delusion of self-righteousness.

He Laid Down His Life…For Us.

Christ willingly laid down His life for us. He willingly died just for you. He offered His life as a living selfless sacrifice. He loved us so much, that He willingly surrendered His life as a sacrifice for all who would receive Him. Christ was willing to pour out His life as an obedient sacrifice so that you and I can live.
