I used to ask myself this question continually throughout my life. One night I begged Yahweh [name of creator] to use my life to help end the suffering and he replied. He lead me to his word [bible]; which I never bothered to read before then, and he taught me all the knowledge inside. Now I know why there is suffering and I know how I can be part of ending it for myself personally and others. If you are where I used to be, and by chance you feel as I do. Please do as I have and pray for his understanding and read his entire word [bible], and it is up to you what to do with what you learn. Open your mind, and forget all the past feelings you have about this book and give it an honest chance with a unbiased mind and the information will blow you away! As he says, "Ask and you shall receive." I'm living proof of this! Blessings.. Why do you think the world suffers? And do you want to be apart of making it better?
