- Why is there suffering and evil in the world?
The pain and suffering you see in the world todayand as you look back in historyis the result of mankinds sin. God created the first human beings, Adam and Eve, to live in a perfect worldwithout sin or sufferingand in a perfect relationship with each other and with Him. When Adam and Eve chose to disobey the only rule God gave them, they allowed pain and death to come into the world. Their disobedience affected their relationship with God, with each other, and even with the earth and the rest of creation.
