Genesis 3 - Doesn't Suffering Disprove God? - JPC Service
18 Oct '09 Ian Garrett - A huge deterrant for unbeliever's coming to God, is why does he allow suffering? The passage has vital things to say about how suffering entered God’s good creation. But we need these other parts of the Bible (and more) to help us not just understand (to the extent that we can) the ‘Why’ of suffering, but to continue to trust the Lord, and so find comfort in him, in the midst of our suffering.
