The problem of evil and suffering is the biggest challenge to the Christian faith today’. Evaluate this statement.
Various types of evil and suffering are evident in the world. This can cause problems for many Christians, as they believe in a loving, powerful and all-knowing God. There are two types of evil and suffering: Moral evil and suffering – this is suffering caused by the actions of humans. Examples include acts of murder, and war. Natural evil and suffering – this is suffering that is caused by nature and has nothing to do with the actions of humans. Examples include earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and disease. The existence of evil and suffering is important because it can cause problems for Christians’ belief in God. God is described as all-loving, as stated in Psalms 103:8: The Lord is compassionate and gracious. Some Christians cannot believe that an omnibenevolent God would design a world full of natural evils. They find it easier to believe these are random acts of nature. Some Christians also find it hard to believe in an omnipotent God. They question why God would allow humans to cause so much evil and suffering if he had the power to stop them from doing so. Some religious people find that when they experience evil and suffering, it can present a challenge to their faith. They may reject religion as a result.

Explain two ways in which salvation influences the lives of Christians today
Baptism as the beginning of new life, publicly affirmed. A practice pre-dating the Crucifixion of Jesus, as well as, rather interestingly, the earliest versions of the Bible, the Church has recognised for 2000 years that the right of immersion in water (baptism) is the outward and ‘sacramental mark’ of being welcomed into salvation and friendship in the Church of God. It was not until the Protestant Reformation and the religious-political events in northern Europe through the 16th and 17th centuries that the importance and integrity of the baptismal rite would begin to be questioned. Suffice it to say, the Nicene Creed, famous for being one of the only creeds of the the earliest days of the Church to which most denominations still commit; the Creed includes the statement ‘I confess one baptism for the remission of sins’. Clearly baptism was not just a mark of salvation, but the means by which salvation would be manifest for the believer.

Two ways in which belief in the trinity influences Christians today
Two ways in which belief in the trinity influences Christians today: 1) Many significant events such as baptisms and marriages are performed in the name of the Trinity. 2) Some Christians, for example Catholics, speak the name of the Trinity as they make the sign of the cross when they enter a Church. You could also talk about how, during every service of the Holy Communion, the Nicene Creed is recited. Hope this helps!

Two Christian beliefs about the causes of sin
1. Sin seperates humans from God, bringing lasting punishment. Humans are given freewill by God therefore it is upto humans whether they behave in an evil or good way. 2. Common belief between Christians is that humans descended from Adam and Eve, who committed 'the original sin', meaning all humans have the ability to disobey God as did Adam and Eve when they followed their temptation and committed the 'original sin'.

Hello, how are you i need some help with this question : "God cannot be loving because people suffer" (12 marks) can you please help thank you
For twelve marks, you should write a short introductory paragraph, three points for the statement and three against, as well as a conclusion showing your personal point of view. Add evidence to each of your points and evaluate the strength of each point. One argument against the statement is: Some people, such as Christians, believe that God is still loving, even if his creation suffers. This is because, suffering may be a result of a misuse of free will. God has instructed Christians on how to use their free will, and if they use it to sin, then they will suffer. This is a weak argument to oppose the statement, as it does not explain why some people who may sin, still lead a life with minimal suffering, in contrast to pious people who suffer constantly. Consider Epicurus’ argument, and reasons why there is suffering in spite of a loving God, for example: the devil, punishment, a test from God, original sin, preparation for heaven, as points to use for and against.
