“Why is there suffering?” This is a question that has been wrestled with by a great number of people over the centuries. In a way there is no easy answer to this, because anyone who has come across real suffering knows that this is not an intellectual question that just requires an intellectual answer, but it is a crying out from the heart from a desperate situation. And this is not best forum to be answering such a question in a way, because it is hard for me to understand your situation and what you may have been through. That being said, I will try my best to outline a brief answer in the space available on what the Bible says about suffering.

The first thing to note is that the world isn’t as God wants it to be. When God created the world, everything was good. Suffering in the world is a result of human beings turning away from God - our relationship with God and other people has turned sour. Instead of doing what is right, what pleases God, we all do what pleases ourselves, at the expense of angering God, and hurting other people. It is as if we have taken what God has given us, the ability to love him and one another, and turned this ability into weapons that randomly shoot and harm anyone that happens to come by.

Now God is just and will not allow this rebellion to last forever, every human being and the world itself is under God’s judgement, and will continue to decay and go wrong until God ends it one day. He wants everyone to understand the state of things and so uses our circumstances (including suffering) to makes us aware that the world is not as it should be. He wants us to turn bak to him and be reconcilled.

The Amazon reviews are very hit or miss with Lorraine Peterson’s If God Loves Me, Why Can’t I Get My Locker Open?

Well this book is no help at all, as a Christian who forgot my locker combination I really thought this was the book for me but nope! It has no advice for opening lockers, in the end all that was needed was a screwdriver and a crowbar, the worst part is my locker got stuck again, and this book was inside! God might be testing me but I’m really starting to doubt my faith.

My locker had been stuck all year. When in desperation I turned to this book. It didn’t contain anything about lockers, but was full of stories about how some Mexican guy loved me. Frustrated, I threw the book at my locker and it popped right open! I threw it at a few other lockers hoping to plunder what was inside, but nothing happened. I guess there’s only enough magic in each book for one locker. I wouldn’t recommend buying a used one because it may already be spent.
