Interesting Twist on the Suffering Argument

Andrew Jackson:

Normally, there are those who argue against the existence of God because they claim that a loving God would not allow human suffering, but this answer does not address the issue of suffering, but actually leads to a helpless, meaningless acceptance of suffering and evil without God. It leads to normalizing suffering and even approving of it.

What is amazing about biblical Christian teaching in contrast to all world religions is that we believe that God choice through love to enter human suffering in its fullness through Jesus Christ. Not only that but we are able to cast all our suffering, cares, and worries on God. Human suffering only finds a basis of understanding and answers when we embrace a suffering God of grace.
