God and the Problem With Evil
In Dr. John Neufeld’s 15-message series, God and the Problem With Evil, tough questions surrounding God’s role in pain and suffering are addressed. How is it possible that the Creator of the universe would allow us, His children, to suffer? The book of Habakkuk invites us to be both overwhelmed and filled with joy at the goodness, splendor, mercy, and majesty of God. Habakkuk invites us to worship in the midst of sorrow and pain. This is a series that answers questions that every believer needs to consider, and the answers we find may surprise us!
We have a confidence that in the midst of our sufferings we are coming to know Christ and in our sufferings we are identifying with Him in his sufferings. Furthermore we are confident that God will only bring those matters into our lives, which are for His glory and our long term good, a good, which is hidden in His glory.Listen Now

A God who uses evil for His own purposes and for the long term good of His people. That is what the book of Habakkuk is designed to help us do.Listen Now
