Why is there suffering? (Part 2)

In the last blog, I discussed how suffering in the forms of disease, disaster, and death occur in nature because of Adam and Eve’s fall.  Even as Jesus overcame sin and death through His resurrection, we still have pain here on earth.  But a new day will come.

Paul writes in Romans 8:18-22, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.”

In a similar way, Isaiah 65:17 says, “Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.”  Even as  man’s fall caused suffering, God’s new heaven and earth eliminates it.
