Like most pastors, the most common question Greg Locke gets from people—particularly nonbelievers—is why God lets bad things happen to good people. Why does He allow suffering?
It’s a valid question, especially if you don’t understand the love and mercy, grace and blessings, of our almighty and all-knowing God. But still, to have an answer to that question beyond some fluffed up version of Christian-ese is always a struggle.
That is—until Greg and another pastor took a trip to Africa together. The other pastor has Cerebral Palsy, and one heated incident with another passenger at the airport is now the source of Greg’s answer to the age-old question, “Why does God allow people to suffer?”
