Jesus doesn’t explain why there is suffering, illness, and death in the world. He brings healing and hope. He doesn’t allow the problem of evil to be the subject of a seminar. He allows evil to do its worst to him. He exhausts it, drains its power, and emerges with new life.
N. T. Wright, Simply Good News
There aren’t many practical answers to these problems. There’s only one, Jesus.
Mr. Wright explains so well how we are to deal with all this. Just believe the good news that Jesus has drawn the sting of all these problems. What I’m saying is that Jesus has removed the ultimate sting from our life’s negative experiences not that we will not have them.
