How to Help an Unbeliever Understand Suffering (Luke 13:1-5)

Pastor Justin Pratt, August 14, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Have you ever had anybody ask you, "If God is so loving and good, then why do bad things happen to good people?" Why do kids get cancer? Why do innocent people die? Why go good people suffer? It's a difficult question, and not always easy to answer. But it's especially difficult to answer when it is asked by a non-believer. Spiritual applications don't mean as much to a non-believer. So how can you help an unbeliever understand suffering?

Luke 13:1-5

1There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (KJV)
