What would you say if you were asked if God causes suffering?
Would you say yes, no, or maybe.
Personally, I as a person might be reluctant to answer that, because looking at the way the world seems to spin, the way events unfold, the wars, poverty, sickness, I would be pressed to say that God causes suffering.
But what does the Bible say?
“it is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly, for the almighty to do wrong” – Job 34:10
God never brings about the evil and suffering we see in the world.
So who is responsible for the world’s suffering?
- Satan, the ruler of the world, is responsible for the suffering of the world. – John 14:30
- Suffering and evil also results from the bad choices and decisions we make.
Now try remember all the things you blamed God for, your dad’s death?, you would find out that he drank or smoked. Why you haven’t gotten a new phone?, remember why you lost the first one.
So stop blaming God, cause there are better days ahead.
