WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
“God . . . will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain.”
WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU
CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?
Yes, for at least two reasons:
God hates suffering and injustice. Consider how Jehovah God felt when his people in Bible times were cruelly mistreated. The Bible says that he was distressed because of “those who were treating them abusively.”
—Judges 2:18, New World Translation.
God has strong feelings about those who harm others. For example, the Bible says that “hands that shed innocent blood” are detestable to him.
—Proverbs 6:16, 17.
God cares for us as individuals. Not only does each person know “his own plague and his own pain” but so does Jehovah!
—2 Chronicles 6:29, 30.
Through his Kingdom, Jehovah will soon end the suffering of each individual. (Matthew 6:9, 10) In the meantime, he tenderly comforts those who sincerely look for him.
—Acts 17:27; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.
How did evil begin, and why has God allowed it to continue? Will there ever be an end to suffering?
