How Do We Deal with Suffering?
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."
It's one thing to have a theological understanding of suffering - how a believer ought to understand the reality of suffering and how God feels about it. But John asks Randy, when it really comes down to it and we experience actual suffering, how do we respond to it in a biblical way. Randy emphasizes that the Bible allows for deep sorrow and real grief. Jesus wept in the face of suffering. God himself grieves over the affects of sin, but we also find comfort in God.
