The Spiritual Realm & the Problem of Suffering

« back to classes page

Why suffering occurs in a world created by a loving God remains one of the most wrestled-with questions in human thought. Does God send suffering to educate, correct or deepen us? Does suffering bring out human qualities that would never emerge without it? Or, is suffering a negative, destructive force we would be better without? If so, why does God allow it? This course will examine biblical approaches to some of these questions. Are there spiritual forces and factors that need to be considered as we address these for ourselves and our community?
