God's words....the truth
Jesus is our salvation
He is known as the word
God's words...the truth
If we know the truth,
the truth will set us free.
The word of Jehovah God is sharp like sword
With power and authority.
Men don't live by bread alone
They live by God's words...the truth
If we speak the truth, God lives with us
If we lie, we are speaking the words
of the evil ones, father of all liars.
May God's words...the truth
be with us in our hearts
and our life for always.
Christian brothers & sisters, please help to spread the good news of God !

There are many therories to help try and explain the old question why we must suffer..There was even a book written "why must bad things happen to good people" I don't recommend that book btw. I read a book entitled "Making sense out of suffering" it offered no answers specificaly but some ideas to help understand why we suffer.
There is no greater book to help us understand Suffering better than Job. Job is afflicted with some of the worst attacks if not second to Christ's crucifixtion. In Job we learn that it is okay to be angry with God to demand to know why must we suffer even when we are good and do as the word says. We learn that we don't need worry about praying for the wrong thing because the Holy spirit makes our prayers right. It is not Job who needs to repent from some forgotten sin.. but it is Job who interceeds for his friends who tell him to simply repent stop complaining, we all suffer ask God to forgive you for whatever it is you have wronged him and get better. Job knows he has not wronged God but still suffers and he is very angry with God..Why God? God simply says to Job I am God, do you not remember who i am and what i have done for you and the world? We suffer from the very first root of sin. Adam and eve is the story of creation and how God so loved us we were given free will and it is a story of how we were decieved into believing that God doesn't love us. Ever since the first original sin the world has not been right..and God has not been overly pleased ..the world is imbalanced terrible things happen..people die at no fault of their own or directly someone elses. There are accidental deaths..sin lets this happen. But we need not worry because when Job asked for a redeemer we were given one Jesus Christ. That is one of the greatest messages i have found in Job that Christ will come. He did come and he lived in our sin..surely He knows our pain so when we ask him for healing it is within his will. God is angry with sin and we have every right to be too! Don't feather things and make them fluffy for people..the pain does really hurt and it can feel unbearable..show some compassion acknowledge that it hurts and walk with them in their pain. I have never met a true Athiest in my life..just people who are angry with God. More often than not i hear "If there was a God why would this and this terrible things happen and we suffer so much" And all i want to ask them is tell me about the God you don't believe in because i probably don't believe in Him either. I'd never think i could offer answers but if anyone reads this..take the time out to read and reflect on the book of Job
