God Sovereign in Suffering
Series: JOB: UNCERTAINTY, SUFFERING, AND A SOVEREIGN GOD
Few people seem to question or object whenever people suffer due to their own evil or foolish choices and decisions. If we do wrong, the reasoning goes, then we must pay the consequences. That’s just how it works. At the same time, though, we must admit that there are also times when there is often no correlation between the amount of wrong we commit and the amount of pain we suffer. In fact, often it is just the opposite. So, what do you do when you are doing everything (or most everything) right, and suddenly everything goes wrong? And why would a wise, good, and loving God allow such suffering to take place?
