I was at an event last night entitled “Has Christianity Failed?” by RZIM where Michael Ramsdem was the main speaker. His second topic was Why does God allow suffering? and he quickly passed the subject off to Vince Vitale who has done his PhD on this topic. I was taken aback to find that Vince only offered a few anecdotal stories and not a theory. I mean, that is what you do for PhD?
I spoke to them today at a second event and was surprised that they could not articulate a theory for suffering. Has anyone seen a concise Christian theory for suffering?
