If suffering was gone, would everyone turn to Jesus? There are three sources of suffering in the Bible--Satan, Man, and God. Why does God allow us to suffer? For discipline, repentance, endurance. Verses to consider include Luke 13:16, Mark 4:15, 1 Peter 5:8, Romans 2:5-8, James 1:2-4, 2 Peter 3:9, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Romans 5:3-5, Romans 8:18. Bill Bora examines this topic in a lesson given March 11, 2015. (This was an interactive class--some comments from the class were deleted because they were not picked up by a microphone. Others were left in because you can hear them with a lesser degree of difficulty or they were really short.)
