.......................................The Cross of Christ

In THE PROBLEM OF EVIL we saw the classic formulation of the problem of evil -

•  IF GOD IS LOVE, why does he allow evil & suffering into the world?

•  IF GOD IS ALL-POWERFUL, why doesn't he deal with evil/suffering?


God's Answer To The Problem Of Evil & Suffering  PSALM 62 vv 11-12

In this psalm the psalmist says the answer to evil is to be seen in 

•  God's LOVE 
and
•  God's POWER 

The Bible shows clearly that God has answered both these questions through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Cross Demonstrates God's Love For A Suffering Humanity   
JOHN 3:16; 1 JOHN 4:10

God loved the world so much he gave his Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross to deal with the problems of a world torn by sin and suffering.

Jesus' Resurrection From The Dead Demonstrates God's Power Over Evil    COLOSSIANS 2:13-15

Verse 15 shows that Jesus DIS........................., DIS.............................. and DEF............................... all the powers of evil by his death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave demonstrated God's ultimate power over sin, death and satanic evil.
