Why does God allow suffering?
That big theological question we’ve all wrestled with. This week in our study of James, we’ll begin to build a theology of suffering. We’ll see James tell us in our suffering we’re not to run from our trials, we’re not to try and get out of trials, we’re to “Count it all joy when you meet trials of various kinds.” (James 1:2)
Douglas Moo says, “The difficulties that inevitably afflict believers have the purpose of deepening commitment to God in Christ.”
Suffering has a different purpose for the Christian. Suffering produces perseverance and perseverance is the path to spiritual maturity.
