Evil and Suffering
Believers within religions battle and challenge the concept of faith of a higher, supreme being, due to the presence of evil. The question arises; If God the creator of the ordered and good world, cares, loves and wants the best for all His creatures, then why does those he loves have to face evil and suffering? Confronting such a force rekindles repeatedly this dilemma in the minds or people. The Christian Tradition deals with this obstacle, evil, that is forever a part of our lives. Christianity does not get rid of evil, sin and death responds with meaning, purpose and cause, and explains its existence in relation to its mystery, a relationship with God, and importantly ourselves, humankind.
Evil is a mystery yet a reality; breathing within our world, walking amongst humanity. Evil exists in many forms. Natural occurring disasters, known as cosmic evil are uncontrolled by man, whereas physical evil relates to harm of the human body, including sickness, disability, deformity to death.
