SBC is pleased to host the 2019 Leadership Conference with speaker, Dr. Gus Konkel, March 15 - 16.
Theme: "How Long O Lord? Suffering with an All Powerful God"
A theology of suffering begins with understanding what it means for God to be all powerful. A common defense of an all powerful God is that he grants freedom to humans who bring about pain and suffering. Biblical theology does not explain the origin of evil; both in the psalms and in the creation story of Genesis evil is present before humans are created. The biblical writers never try to explain away evil, they call on an all powerful God to blast evil away. This series of studies will look at how God achieves full dominion by building relationships that lead to peace. God deals with suffering in a process by which all things are brought together for good to those that love him and are called to follow his purpose.
