Is God To Blame For All The Suffering In the World?

How do we reconcile the fact that God is loving and is in control with all the suffering in the world? In the news on television and radio we hear and see innocent children and women who continue to suffer from effects of war and famines etc and yet we hear of a God of love. If He is a God of love why does he not intervene to at least help the innocent victims? And in any case why did he allow things to reach this far. Why did he not make sure that that harmony continues to prevail in this world?

Atheist such as Richard Dawkins have had a field day making fun of the idea of God in the light of all the suffering and wars done in the name of religion. To them if God exists then he is worse than the worst tyrants the world has ever seen.

These and other questions are dealt with in the video sermon below by Dr Dwight Nelson, Senior Pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church at Andrews University.
