3 primary categories or reasons for doubt:
1. Questions we can’t answer
2. Situations that seem unfair
3. Hurts we can’t resolve







If there is an all-powerful God, and He loves us, then why does suffering exist?
Suffering exists because love is more important to God than control.
“In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.”

Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life
The secular story is survival of the fittest by the sacrifice of the weakest; the Christian story is sacrifice of the fittest for the survival of the weakest.
