If there is a God why does he allow suffering?


In order to experience total health, we need to know both our roots and our future - where we came from and where we are going. We need to know where disease came from? Why do we get ill? Where did death come from? Without this understanding, we have no perspective, no purpose, no hope - only fears and unresolved anxieties, and that in turn leads to more ill health!

The daily papers, the philosophies of men, the schools of learning cannot provide these answers. We have to take them from God Himself - and He does have the answers to give us. Where do we find them? - In the Bible. These questions and answers will give you more understanding, and a healthy perspective on life. Once we understand, not only from where the problems originated, but also that there is a future free from our suffering, there is less anger and less fear. Our future hope can be like an eternal springtime, with new life and joy and colour.

Q.1 How did our world come into existence?
‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’ Genesis 1:1

Q.2 Who created the world?
‘In the beginning was the Word (Jesus) and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.’ John 1:1-3. (Italics supplied.)

Q.3 What was our world like when it was new?
‘And God saw everything that He had made and behold it was very good.’ Genesis 1:31.

Q.4 How and when did it get spoiled?
God had given Adam and Eve a test. They were not to eat of one tree in the Garden of Eden. They had only one commandment. The devil in the form of a serpent tempted Eve. He said, 'Hath God said, ye shall not eat?' and put a doubt in her mind. He then told her, 'Ye shall not surely die.' That was a lie. 'And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes and to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.' Genesis 3:6
They had broken the one commandment that God had given them.

Q.5 How did they feel?
'Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.' Genesis 3:8

Q.6 When they were asked about what they had done, how did they react?
Adam said, 'The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat.' He blamed his wife - and also God.
Eve said, 'The serpent beguiled me and I did eat.' Genesis 3:12,13. She blamed the devil, in essence saying it was not her fault. Don't we still do this? The Bible is a very accurate picture of human life.
