Pain and Illness - Hope in Suffering

In this episode we are talking about pain and illness. We have covered emotional suffering in previous podcasts, but physical suffering is all around us and can be very severe and difficult to endure ourselves and to see in the world around us. What light does the Bible shed on this? Is our thinking in line with Scripture? Is there a purpose in suffering or is it simply to be avoided? How well does the Church care for the sick?

We always conclude with some hope for those suffering because there is always hope in Christ! Thanks for listening!

About the Podcast

Theology Meets Reality
How to follow Christ not culture
Following Christ is not the same as following contemporary Christian culture.
Lisa and Greg Casimir are going back to the Bible to re-evaluate relevant issues and how to apply them in the messiness of life. Lisa has a master’s degree in theology and Greg has spent years working in a church and they have four children. Together they are living at the intersection of theology and reality. They bring humility, humor, and authenticity to a fun discussion of theology.
Join us for theological conversation, hope, and encouragement as you seek to follow Christ's teachings - even if it looks different from the church next door.
