The Problem of Suffering

The pain and suffering we experience in our lives raises a host of deeper questions that are difficult to answer. Why do horrible things happen to good people? In such a world, is it really possible that an all-powerful and all-loving God exists? It seems that either God isn’t powerful enough to end our suffering, or He doesn’t love us enough to end it. But if God isn’t all-powerful, or if He isn’t all-loving, why should we follow Him? Why doesn’t He just come down and help us?
