Atheist, Mark D asked: “Does human suffering discredit the existence of an all-loving God?”
Though our Creator, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, is the embodiment of LOVE, He is also perfect righteousness and perfect justice and He does not lie. God created all things “very good” in The Beginning as well as establishing a Covenant of provision-sustenance with mankind predicated upon obedience to the edict prohibiting compromise with evil.
Mankind, in his narcissism, opted to reject God’s Covenant of provision and sustenance through disobedience and rebellion; therefore, the human genome and the whole of Nature fell under the curse of sin.
Human suffering is the resultant of man’s choices not God’s love; therefore, human suffering does not suggest that our Creator is unloving but the fallen-nature of man and the resulting suffering and death from sin are testimony to God’s faithfulness and justice and honesty and integrity and Holiness.
