Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
Today's question:

Why do evil and suffering exist in the world?
Today's Points:

1) Evil was not God's plan.

2) For the moment, God is patient in allowing evil.

3) God will eradicate all evil at the judgment.

The Classical Problem of Evil:

1. God as the Bible reveals Him is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent.

2. If this particular God exists, then evil cannot exist.

3. Evil exists.

4. Therefore, God as the Bible reveals Him does not exist.

The resolution: Premise #2 is false.
Question: What is the most evil thing that has ever been done?

For discussion this week:
-- Why is the question of evil and suffering such a difficult topic?
-- Has evil or suffering in your life ever caused you to doubt God's goodness? If so, when?
-- Does it encourage you that God "doesn't waste our hurts" if we're in Christ? Why or why not?
-- How can we pray for each other in the midst of times of suffering?
