Why Does God Allow Suffering? A Barna Christian research group asked, “If you could ask God only one question, what would you ask?” The most common response was, “Why is there pain and suffering in the world?” If there is a God, and if God is good, why does he let us suffer? Why all this evil and suffering? This is a very important and rich question. And there are lots of ways to approach this question. In fact, the Book of Revelation gives us a good insight and hint to help us get the right answers.
