Your Thoughts On Pain

What kind have pain have you had to endure?Do you think God cause the pain? Why or why not?


Blogger Paul G said...

Every body has to suffer some kind of pain, some greater, some lesser.
Yes it is the Lord who causes us to suffer pain.
Pain is a punishment from the Lord for our sins.
No sin, no pain, it is as simple as that.
No transgression, no punishment.
The Lord does not punish anyone unjust but punish everyone according to their deeds.

Paul, is the sin forgiven through pain, or are we punished over and over again for that same sin.?
That is not punishment, that is torture.

No, your sins are not forgiven. If you are committing the same sin over and over again you will be punished till you stop sinning.

If you suffer toothache and the dentist tells you to stop eating lollies or it will destroy your teeth, what will you do?
Obey and your toothache will stop, disobey and you will suffer.

However if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ then the above does not apply to you any more, you have passed out of the cycle of sin and death because the Lord Jesus Christ has died for your sins on the cross and the punishment which was due to you fell upon Him and by His stripes you are healed.
And if you believe not you shall be damned.

Yes I know that it doesn't sound nice, but there are only two ways , the easy way or the hard way.
If you are wise and you don't like pain and suffering then chose the easy way (JESUS)!
Kind regards

I do think that most people struggle with God being a loving God because they embrace a theology that sees God as the inflictor or permitter of their pain.

Personal story: I remember times in 1994 shortly after my first wife died when I hurt so much. I did not understand why she died at age 43. Yet each time I prayed my heart returned to the cross and I began to understand (in a very small way) that God loved me more than I could understand.

Since that time the cross has made such a difference in my life. Each time I want to see Jesus as the inflictor or permitter of my pain I remember the cross where He suffered. And if we accept the idea that Jesus is God incarnate then we understand that God also suffered in this life.

I still struggle with deep pain and heartache but not with God. How can I struggle with One who really really really loves me and comforts me in times of my deepest pain and despair?

That said, I do understand how difficult it is to believe that God really really really loves us when we see Him as the inflictor or permitter of our pain.

Bob, God is a disciplinarian, if you don't see it that way read your bible once more.

I have no clue what you are trying to say anonymous. I think that it might be helpful if you better understood what God really looks like. He came to earth to plainly show us. LOL, perhaps you need to read the gospels a few times.

Yes I think he gives us pain to endure, though God says he will help us through it, but I don't see it, And I don't see any miracles either.

These people, Dante's locks are african american as well as mine's turning bright currently, states the particular Ninja Concept key, referring to months of being denounced by simply followers regarding purportedly remaking your white-haired Satanic force May possibly Cry star in his individual image.And we'd quit banging in over it, in the event that Dante were not nude as a nudist jaybird as we find him or her at the beginning of DMC.He's resting off of a heavy night time within a grubby truck scattered together with pizzas packing containers as well as someone's feminine underthings.However gratuitous this kind of non-graphic nudity isn't, states Ninja Theory.
