Does God Let Bad things happen? 2 Cor 1: 3-7
Passage: 2 Corinthians 1:2–1:7
As the City of Houston continues to rebuild and we see the the destruction of other hurricanes, earthquakes, and suffering in the world, we ask ourselves
- How are we to understand suffering?
- Why does God let bad things happen?
- Did God cause this to happen?
- Is there a God and what is he like?
- What is our response to that God?
- Do I believe their hope in the midst of pain and suffering?
