2 Corinthians – The Purpose of Suffering

May 21, 2017





The question of suffering has been one that has long challenged people. If the goal of life is to be happy then suffering is to be avoided at all costs. The Bible gives us a robust and full response to the issue of suffering. Suffering is not something merely to be avoided. In fact, suffering may be the very thing that we need.
