Evil and Suffering what does the Bible say


First and foremost evil and suffering is not a myth; it is as real as the air we breathe when we fail to recognise the existence of evil or suffering we doing ourselves a disservice.

Here in the book of Psalm 116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was, greatly afflicted. We need to understand that God ordains all things that happen including evil.

God does whatever he wants Psalm 135:6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in the earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

But whatever we may say about God’s power over evil we must never think that God is corrupt or there is darkness in the creator as the book of James 1:13 Let no man say when he is, tempted, I am, tempted of God: for God cannot be, tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Here in the book of Romans 5:3-5 We are reminded of our reward when we bear suffering. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience. And patience, experience; and experience, hope. And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is, given unto us.

1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy of being compared with the glory which shall be, revealed in us.

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
