Critics of religion often say that if there is a god, he cannot be both all-powerful and all-loving. An all-loving God would not allow the terrible suffering we see in the world, and an all-powerful God would surely be able to stop it. Therefore, God is either not all-powerful, not all-loving, or simply doesn’t exist at all. Join us for part two of Questioning Jesus as we hear His own disciples ask, “Jesus, don’t you care?”
Passage (read it):
The Disciples’ question for Jesus: Do You care?
Rebuking Jesus: Jesus is Lord of all Storms
Sleeping Jesus: God often allows the storms to rage
Questioning Jesus: Where is your faith?
