Is There No Balm in Gilead?

Are there answers to the tough topics such as death and suffering?  Join Juan to find out.

This talk takes a fresh look at the problem of pain, evil and suffering from a theological perspective. It tackles five tough questions regarding the problem, and provides a rational biblically sound response. The questions tackled are:

1. Why didn’t God make a world where people did not hurt each other?
2. Did God create evil? If not, then where did evil come from?
3. Why didn’t God make us unable to choose to do things that cause pain and suffering?
4. Couldn’t God have anticipated the consequences of giving people free choice?
5. Why can’t evil be stopped?
