"I can't understand why God allows suffering!!"

That's an all too familar comment, when people look seriously into the Christian faith.  Perhaps, you have been asking the question, perhaps you've been touched by real suffering.

In these coming weeks, come and explore what God does say about this heartfelt, troubling question as we look at the book of Job together.  But I must warn you - there are no easy answers, and the answers you will get may not be what you expect!

Do you ever feel you’re out of step with your culture?  Do people insult you, ignore you or simply give you a wide berth because they know some of your Christian views don’t quite chime with the way people think nowadays?

 

If that’s how you feel, then you’re in good company!  That’s how 1st century Christians felt!  And Peter writes to them and says: ‘Don’t change, Stand fast! Stand secure; this is the true Gospel! Your future hope is coming.  God will vindicate you when Jesus comes.  But till then you must get yourself ready!’

 

There couldn’t be a more apt message for 21st Century Christians in Britain today.  Read 1 Peter and come and hear with us how God tells us how Christians are to stand fast for Him.   And if you’re not a Christian, come and get a reality check about what it means to follow Jesus!  How being a Christian involves suffering now and looking forward to amazing glory later …
