In the last 6 months, the world has seen the devastation and destruction caused by the Russia-Ukraine war. More than 5,000 people have died in this war. Beyond that, there were also reports of mass murder of civilians, senseless attacks on hospitals, abductions of civilians and even violence done on helpless women. If God is sovereign, why would He allow such atrocities to happen?
This question, about the seeming contradiction of a good and just God allowing suffering and evil to exist, has become even more pertinent in light of the pandemic and the financial meltdown in poorer countries like Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
While such questions are usually posed by Christians who genuinely struggle with their understanding of God and His sovereignty, they are also asked by non-believers, perhaps seeking to better understand the God Whom Christians worship. So, how should we answer such questions? Where can we find biblical responses to such queries?
We have prepared for you a booklet entitled Why Is There Evil? by R. C Sproul (now home with the Lord) that addresses the problem of evil, examining how Christians have wrestled with these questions through the ages and providing answers as to why God continues to be sovereign and is working out all things for good. Let me encourage you to request for your free copy of Why Is There Evil? today!
Thank you for your continued support of this ministry. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you and serve with you for the sake of God’s Kingdom. God Bless.
Love in the Truth,
