Speaker: Fuzale "Fuz" Rana, Vice President of Research & Apologetics - Reasons to Believe
Scripture: Genesis 1-2; Psalm 104:20-22, 27-30; Job 38: 39-41
Summary: If God exists—and if He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-good—why is there so much pain and suffering in the world? Perhaps nothing epitomizes the problem of pain and suffering more than the cruelty observed in nature. But can pain, suffering, and animal death really be understood as part of God’s “good” design? Is it even biblical to suggest such a thing? Join Dr. Fuz Rana, vice-president of research and apologetics at Reasons to Believe, as he addresses this issue and argues that there are “redemptive analogies” in nature, that point to a higher purpose to pain, suffering, and death. When we apprehend these ideas, the concern that keeps many people from the Christian faith, can be used to point them to the reality of the Gospel.
