    Author: laptop Created Date: 2/7/ PM.   How could he, a man of faithful goodness, be allowed to suffer so much? That question gnawed at Job day in and day out. Finally, he demanded that God give an answer for his did.

    To the extent that we have God's goodness, we have godliness or God-likeness. The Bible gives us God's complete "instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy ). We should cherish it and read it far more than any other book or resource! Only through it can we learn to be like God. God summarizes His standards of goodness in the Ten Commandments. Tobiah, or Toby as we refer to him, was the first name Mark and I had agreed on even before Savannah was born. When our son was born dead, we could not think of another name, and by faith in God's Word, we affirmed that God is both good and sovereign. The point of all this is that in the midst of my pain I understood God's goodness toward me.

    At this point in the argument, pain, no longer incompatible with God's Goodness and Omnipotence, becomes to be seen as God's way of accommodating the freedom of a rebel creature. We have seen that in a stable and meaningful universe a possibility of pain is inherent; and in a universe of creatures, inclined, by virtue of their fallen nature, to.   In his book, The Problem of Pain, Lewis says, Pain helps to shatter the illusion that all is well, thus allowing God to plan a flag of truth within the fortress of a rebel sand. Clearly, as sinful people, our paths need redirecting; there has to be some means for God .

"The first thing is this. God is not the creator of evil, pain, and suffering. This answers the question, 'Why didn't God create a world where people don't suffer?' "The answer is He did. Genesis says God saw all that He had made and it was very good," he continued.

"But if God is not the author of pain and suffering where did it come from. But as the book continues glimmers of hope begin to shine through concerning the goodness of God which may be seen in the midst of futility and of how this goodness may be enjoyed. As the book develops it concentrates more and more upon the solution to the futility which surrounds mankind until it concludes with how it is that man can find.
