It’s no secret that we live in a broken and fallen world; every day the evening news confirms this. Natural disasters. Babies dying. Kids killing other kids. Cancer. The list goes on and on.
One of the questions that often comes up is: “Why does a good God allow bad things to happen?”This is a great question and not one that God is scared to answer.
