Thrive Perspectives: God, Suffering & Evil

Thrive Perspectives: God, Suffering & Evil

Show notes

If God exists then why is there so much suffering and evil in the world? If God is good, all-powerful and all-knowing, why would he allow so many terrible things to happen? In this episode DJ and Matt discuss this question and, in the process, land on some key elements of the biblical worldview.
