A Faith Walk with Chas & Joni Stevenson

Does God Test People With Suffering?

March 12, 2018

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. (James 1:2-3)

Some people stop at verse 3 and say - “See, God is testing me with this trial”. But is God the One who is doing the testing? They should have read a little farther to verse 13 for clarification. Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. Pastor Chas explains in detail this sometimes perplexing question, and shows that God is not the One to be blamed when bad things happen.
