The ‘Why?’ Series – A day exploring the question of God and suffering
The ‘Why?’ Series is a new Zacharias Trust event happening annually looking at a key ‘Why?’ question. This year, our team will explore the question of God and suffering from multiple angles, giving a reason for hope in Jesus Christ that engages both personally and meaningfully with a suffering world.
One of the greatest objections to the existence of the Christian God is the presence of suffering and evil in the world. The question of why a loving God would allow so much suffering is common to all of us. Whether we experience what Os Guinness describes as the ‘lash’ of evil against us, or the impact of sickness or the effects of a natural disaster, the question of suffering demands an answer.
