Podcast - Jesus and the Problem of (Not) Suffering
Why does God allow so much suffering?
Where is God in suffering?
These questions may be the largest ever asked about the existence of a good and loving God.
Jon Coutts, PhD is the Assistant Professor of Christian Theology at Ambrose University. He's also one of my favourite professors I get to study under. Not only because he's brilliant, but because he is real and kind. He's always met me where I am at and joined me in my own struggles of faith. Jon practices what he preaches!
And here, Jon not only defines the problem of suffering, but also gives us the picture of how we live as Christians in the here and now, where suffering still exists. Quite frankly, this sermon reminded me why I love being a follower of Jesus. It's one I will return to often.
