The reality of suffering is one of the most challenging objections to the God of the Bible. But Scripture does not shy away from the subject. Much of Scripture validates pain and guilt. And yet, the Scriptures don’t give an airtight answer to all our suffering. Instead, God tells us a story of a good world that went bad because of human’s free decision. But it also tells us about a God who steps into this world of pain and suffers with us and for us. He then points us to goal of God’s story, a renewed world with renewed people, where he will wipe away every tear from all our faces.
Scriptures: Matthew 26:36-46
