If God is love (which He is), then why do the majority of the people on earth not understand His love or struggle to receive it? If God is a good God (which He is), then why doesn’t He answer the cry of everyone in need? Why is there so much suffering and pain in this world? Why do so many live in hunger?
These are the kinds of questions that turn many away from God and cause them to close their hearts off from Him. Even those who grew up in the church struggle with these questions at times. When life brings unexpected challenges, it’s hard to find satisfying answers. We reject God and His plan for us because His ways and plans don’t make any sense to our natural mind.
