On Suffering – Preparing Us For Heaven, Part III of III
Since the Fall, mankind has had to endure suffering. And since then, we’ve tried to explain what suffering is, what it means for us, and its purpose. Entire treatises in philosophy have been devoted to it and the different religions offer various explanations of it. But to come to fully understand suffering is impossible because it’s beyond our limits of understanding as humans.
Suffering is a mystery even though we can experience it at any point in our lives. It can be emotional suffering, such as the grief we feel when a loved one dies, or it can be physical suffering.
