How could a good God allow evil and suffering? In this video, we explore how the Christian and atheist worldviews account for evil and suffering and what the Bible says about the topic. We then ask a different question: “Did God make any provision for the existence of evil and can we trust him in our suffering?” And to answer this, we look to the cross where Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, suffered and died.

The video concludes by sharing Corrie ten Boom’s powerful true story, bringing the videos’ dramatic introduction scene involving World War II and the holocaust full circle.
