Does God Cause Suffering?

Does God Cause Suffering? from Randy Alcorn on Vimeo.

In October of 2012 Randy spent a weekend at The Cove, The Billy Graham Association's conference center in Asheville, NC. Over the weekend Randy was interviewed by Dr. John Akers on the theme "Four Central Truths of A Biblical Worldview."
John brings up the question that if God is completely sovereign, does that mean He ultimately causes evil? How can He allow suffering? Randy discusses several differing opinions that attempt to answer this question, and the theological consequences that go along with them. For more information about “If God Is Good” please visit
