Why Does God Allow Bad Things to Happen

Why Does God Allow Bad Things to Happen

Speaker: Jay Egenes

Series: Searching for God

Seemingly, bad things can happen to anyone. Yet, God is still good! God cares about his world and did not make us to be puppets—we have autonomy! What could go wrong? Self-centeredness and sin is often our choice. We have messed things up badly and the world is less good than God created it to be. However, our God is ever-present...God promises to restore us when hurt, damaged, or lost. God can use our sufferings to give us perseverance, character, and hope for the future. As a receiver or giver of restorative love we can be active in God's plan to make the world right and closer to what God intended. #DespiteMistakes #GodLoves #JesusSaves #messiahyl
