What kind of God allows suffering?

This talk recognises the personal nature of suffering and asks how God can allow it.

Suffering comes to us all at times. This talk considers why suffering exists and whether a universe without the possibility of suffering might also lack other things we desire. It then considers what Christians believe God has done about suffering – and what difference Jesus Christ makes. Finally, the talk considers how God is going to resolve the issue of suffering in the future.
