Why Does God Allow Suffering?

Author: Jack Wellman Why does God allow suffering that He is fully capable to stopping? This question has not only challenged Christians, but anyone. To witness histories or current atrocities and worldwide suffering on such catastrophic levels, can be a major stumbling block even for believers in Christ, not to mention atheists or agnostics. If God is “supposed to be an all-powerful and all-loving God, then why doesn’t He stop it? Is He powerless, is He tired, is He even there…or maybe He’s asleep.” Being a Christian is no insurance against cancer, disease, disability, and an unexpected death. In fact,

10 Things To Do When Suffering As A Christian

Christian suffering is a reality! This is because everyone who desires to live godly in Christ will suffer persecution. But the good news is that God will deliver you from them all. However, persecution is neither palatable nor desirable no matter how short or long the period of suffering may be. Therefore this article tells you what to do when suffering as a Christian.

Should a Christian participate in a Color Run?

Lately I’ve been seeing friends, Christians and non-Christians alike, participating in this event’s called “Color Runs” which are usually 5k runs, were people wear white and stop by color stations to throw colored powder on themselves, their friends and in the air. The past two springs, more and more pictures on Facebook of smiling people covered in blues, purples, yellows, reds and other colors with little spots of their white tee-shirts peeking out from behind, keep showing up in my timeline. Honestly, It looks like a lot of fun (a little precarious for anyone with dust allergies or asthma) and

Understanding The Power In The Name Of Jesus

The name of Jesus is so powerful that ignorance of it is rubbing many of God’s blessings and fulfilment in life. The enemy will do anything to keep man in the dark so that he can continue to oppress him. The truth is that the power in the name of Jesus brings deliverance from all oppressions of the devil and delivers dominion to mankind. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved – Acts 4:12 (KJV) And his name through faith in his name hath

You Are God’s Child

When you stand by a tree, do you think that the tree is beautiful in its color, design and artistry? If you can see the beauty of this tree, then why would you ever think you are not 100 times more beautiful in the eyes of your Creator? This tree cannot lavish God with love from its free will, since it has no free will. It is true that the tree gives glory to God by existing and being beautiful in the eyes of God, but it cannot honor its Creator with words of love and affection.  The tree is

Encouragement And Favor From The Psalms

Psalm 150 verse 2 ” praise him for his surpassing greatness” One of the things to reflect on in prayer is God’s greatness which surpasses

Love is Not…

Love is not irritable or resentful. Love is not easily annoyed, nor is it bitter or indignant. We could add that love is not cynical either, in that cynicism is closely related to irritability and resentment. This means that these characteristics are expressions of faithlessness. Faithlessness often expresses itself as irritation and resentment. Faithlessness is often bitter and indignant, and conversely, to be bitter and indignant are expressions of faithlessness. Of course, those who are bitter and indignant often slide into cynicism, which is a another expression of faithlessness. Interesting, Paul may have had the ancient Greek Cynics in mind
