WHY does God allow us to go through pain??

You may have heard this before and then again, maybe you haven't.
I for one believe this is one of the BEST explanations/ answers to the question....








WHY does God allow us to go through pain?





A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.
As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said:
"I don't believe that God exists."
"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.
"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist.
Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people?
Would there be abandoned children?
If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.
I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."
The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument.
The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop
Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.
He looked dirty and unkept. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber:
"You know what? Barbers do not exist."
"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber.
"I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"
"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because
if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."
"Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come to me."
"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist!
That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help.

That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS !!!!!!! Let them know there IS a true and living God!

Well said Rev. Luckett. We need to be careful of the decisions WE make without consulting the Father.

Thank you Pastor Bell. I seek NO apologies. My concern is for the BABES reading this as well as the folks who come here seeking guidance and teaching from these two men that are here. I pray this situation is resolved so we can move on with the teaching and learning of the word. UNITY is necessary in the BODY right now. Why are we wrestling with each other? I've asked this question over and over. Listen folks, it's not about us, but it's about this war that we are DEEP in right now. Ephesians 6:11-13 says...11)Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13)Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.!!!!

Are we not in a war daily? Are we dressed in our armour? Are we fighting? Who are we fighting?

Work TOGETHER for the MOST HIGH, not against one another! SIMPLY!
