Christian beliefs about God…

The bottom line is….why should God care about the suffering that goes on in the world?

To understand why evil and suffering is such a deal breaker to many people, you have to understand what God has to be in order, logically, to be God!

Look at the pictures on the next slide. They are clues about what religious people believe God is like.

Can you work out the three Christian beliefs about God….?

Feedback

Suffering raises lots of questions...

Who’s fault is it?

Why did this happen?

Could it have been prevented?

These question lead many people to question the existence of God. Many ATHEISTS believe that evil and suffering proves that God cannot exist.

Can you think of a question a person may raise if the witness or experience some kind of suffering?


Feedback

The PROBLEM for THEISTS?

What problem?

TASK…

Fill in p9 of your booklet – ‘Evil and Suffering- The problem for THEISTS’ by completing the unfinished sentences in some of the boxes.


Feedback

God is believed to be OMNI-BENEVOLENT, OMNIPOTENT and OMNISCIENT.

If God is OMNI-BENEVOLENT he would...

LOVE us and not want us to feel pain through evil and suffering.

If God isOMNISCIENT he would...

KNOW that people were suffering in the world.

If God is OMNIPOTENT he would...

BE ABLE to remove or prevent evil and suffering.

Therefore God and Evil...

CANNOT EXIST AT THE SAME TIME

Evil and Suffering DOES exists!

Therefore God...

CANNOT EXIST

Plenary - the PROBLEM for THEISTS

  • Imagine you are having a conversation with a THEIST...

  • Take one of the questions that Homer asks on the next slide.

  • What answers do you think a THEIST would give? Try to come up with a possible answer to at least ONE of Homer’s questions.


Feedback

God gave people FREE-WILL , the ability to choose between right and wrong. Sometimes people make the wrong choice!

If God is OMNI-BENEVOLENT why does he let innocent people suffer?

If God created the world, why did he create a world full of evil and suffering?

Suffering is a sometimes a PUNISHMENT from God for those who have committed sin. Sometimes it is simply a TEST of faith.

How can you believe in God that allows evil and suffering to happen?

Sometimes Evil people are influenced by the DEVIL, but sometimes evil and suffering is all part of Gods great PLAN.
