In October of 2012 Randy Alcorn was interviewed by Dr. John Akers at The Cove in Asheville, NC. In this clip, 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. See Randy's book If God Is Good for more information.
