Why Is there Suffering in the World? 

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36

“If there is a God and that God is a good God, then why is there suffering?” “What kind of a God is it that has created evil?” Ever heard those comments before? Ever made them yourself?

You’re not alone. Many people have thought the same thing. But that’s not straight thinking. Let me tell you the way it truly is.

God did not create evil. God created perfection. God made man perfectly free, and freedom therefore gave rise to evil. In order to love, we must be free to choose to love. Then, in order to choose to love, we have to be able to choose not to love.

Which kind of love do you want from others? A forced love or a free love? Which sounds better, “I love you” or “I have to love you”?
