A Loving God?
It is a question that has been asked by men and women time after time in this generation. Unbelievers and God-fearing Christians alike have puzzled over this question, yet in different ways. As Christians, we believe in the infallibility of the word of God. When God’s word says that God is Love,(1 John 4:16), Christians tend to look at that passage, then look at the world and what they see happening all around them and think that there is some contradiction. The unbeliever looks at the suffering on this earth and uses this to claim that “There is No God.” They think, “These weird Christians claim that their god is a god of love. How could a loving god allow suffering, and sin for that matter, in this world that he supposedly created?” I wish to look at these statements with you and address them (in multiple blog posts, of course). We will look at the supposed contradiction of a loving God and a suffering world; we will see that the very fact that unbelievers acknowledge sin and suffering is proof of the existence of God; and we may even dive into some of the shocking accounts of the Old Testament “God of Wrath” and his most appalling displays of wrath located in the Old New Testament. Once again, thanks for visiting my blog and be looking out for the start of my posts in a day or two. James 4:13-15
