A Greater Good
Part 9 of 'The Biggest Question: why does God allow suffering?'
One reason God allows suffering is to bring about a greater good result that we cannot yet see – something that is even more important than the suffering. This may be a long-term result. The Bible says that this life is not all there is – it is just the first page of a much bigger story. Ten thousand years from now, when we look back on this life, the most dreadful things that have happened here and now will seem very small and unimportant. To someone who does not believe in God or in life after death, this will just seem like wishful thinking. But there are good reasons to believe in God, and in life after death. Recognising the greater good can help us to understand why God allows suffering. Part 9 of 'The Biggest Question: why does God allow suffering?' Introduced by BBC TV Songs of Praise presenter Diane Louise Jordan.
