A common objection to the Christian faith and the existence of God is on the subject of suffering. It is difficult for many to accept the existence of a loving God when there is such incredible suffering evident around the world.
The Bible is very open and honest about the reality of human suffering. Jesus Christ is the only person in history to demonstrate complete authority over all forms of suffering as displayed with the healing of those who afflicted with sickness, disability and disease, controlling the weather, controlling demonic oppression and even raising people from the dead. Not only this, but Jesus endured unfathomable suffering Himself as He took our sin on Himself to open the path for a restored relationship between God and man.
The following story provides an interesting perspective (we have updated some of the language).
