A World Infected with Evil
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 points out that the reality of suffering is a result of the fact that we live in a world infected with evil. He asks Randy to explain the nature of evil and its relationship with suffering. Randy emphasizes that sin initiated the process of death and the experience of suffering. So though suffering as a whole is a result of sin this does not mean that each instance of suffering is not the direct result of sin in that persons life. With the beginning in mind - the origin of suffering - we also need to look forward to the end of the story, when suffering is done away with.
