WHY Must Men Suffer?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892
Died: January 16, 1986
Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous," says Scripture. WHY? "I am the Eternal ... I create evil," says Isa, 45:5, 7. HOW can this be? Who was responsible for Adam's sin? Did Satan thwart God's purpose? Was God unable to prevent it? The real meaning of the story of JOB brings the true answer. WHY DOES God permit war? WHY does God allow human suffering and misery? "If God is GOD - if God is LOVE - if He is MERCIFUL, He would not wish for people to suffer," is the reasoning of many humans. "And if He is ALMIGHTY," they conclude, "He could, and would prevent It." What's wrong with this reasoning? Is GOD Author of EVIL? Years ago a post-office clerk came to me with a question.
