Why do bad things happen to good people?

Date:1/2/22

Series: Asking For A Friend

Speaker: Pastor Hans Dahl

When that loved one passes prematurely...
When a flood or tornado wipes out a community...
When cancer strikes...

We naturally ask: “Why, God?” If God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent—if God sees all, can do all, is all-powerful—why doesn’t God intervene when bad things happen? How do I reconcile a loving God with something like cancer that seems to keep inflicting me and my family? Well...what if the God you might blame for your pain is actually the same God that’s with you in it?

We believe wrestling with these questions we all have, rather than ignoring them is so important and healthy for a life of faith.
