Father Mike Schmitz – “The Real Reason to Why God Allows Suffering”

In the video “The Real Reason to Why God Allows Suffering” Mike Schmitz explains how in the world there is two sides, good and evil, he also demostrates how God allows us to have freedom and the right to choose. Evil is an action that is thought of as bad.  It is said that in the world there is two types of evil, Moral which includes human actions and Physical which includes death. These two types relate to how God and us humans are able to present the idea of evil. When something bad happens to us we often go straight to the thought that God means for these things to happen, this thought gives us the question of “why does God do this to me?” or ” why doesn’t God make bad things not happen to us?” Most all of the “evil actions” that occur to us gives us the feeling of suffering. We all deal with suffering in different ways. Suffering is seen as a negitive thing but it actually can benefit us. Suffering benefits us only making us stronger by allowing us to push through the situation and turn to someone who cares, like God. The only reason of why we do face suffering is because God uses it as a learning point in our lives. Schmits claims that “God allows things to be broken, so we can be free.” This statement connects to the idea of life lessons and suffering by again allowing us to get through things that don’t go our ways so we can still have the lives we deserve. An example would include having a loved one die but allowing us to deal with the lose in grief , this also giving us a clearer mind without having to worry about that one person.  So to answer the question to “Why does God allow suffering” is simply said to be, because God uses it to give us freedom and give us a meaning in life. I agree with these ideas disscused by Schmitz. I feel they are really important in the development of our lives. One of my favourite qoutes is “Our suffering has a meaning and it proves we are alive.” This qoute to me means that when we suffer it provides the visualizaton of being alive and allowing us to keep going.

The points dissuced is the concept relating to “The Real Reason Why Good Allows Suffering” can also connect to other topics of “Believing in a God who allows evil” and decsribing what it means to fear in our lives, also disscussed my Father Mike Schmitz.
