At our Mennonite Church British Columbia young adult retreat a few weeks ago we engaged our doubts about God. As I have said in a previous post, our doubts provide the context in which our faith can grow. Therefore, it is important for us to ask the questions sparked by doubt.
One of our sessions at our young adult retreat, one which I was privileged to lead, navigated the question “If God is loving, why is there pain and suffering in the world?” An immense question, but one that deserves the full assault of our brutally honest questions. Here, Bruxy Cavey (who I am a big fan of) tackles this question well. It’s a short 3 minute video, so it doesn’t get into any significant depth, but it is well worth your time if this is something you think about, or doubt.
What are your feelings after hearing how Bruxy Cavy answered this question? How do you view pain and suffering in light of his answers?
