“Did the Demons Do It? Jesus, Satan and the Problem of Suffering”
Why suffering occurs in a world created by a loving God remains one of the most wrestled- with questions in human thought. Does God send suffering to educate, correct or deepen us? Does suffering bring out human qualities that would never emerge without it? Or, is suffering a negative, destructive force we would be better without? If so, why does God allow it? Michael Lloyd takes a dim view of suffering. He will look primarily at the Gospels for answers to some of these questions, and he will argue that taking the New Testament’s demonic language seriously helps us think more humanely about these difficult problems.
Michael Lloyd is the Principal of Wycliffe Hall at the University of Oxford in England. To learn more about him, click HERE.
