Pastor John Van Sloten talks about the problem of pain. Why does God allow it to happen? If God is good and all-powerful, couldn’t there be another way?

“I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.”
God via the prophet Isaiah 45:6-7, NIV

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Humanity’s fall into sin, Genesis 3:4-5, NIV

“I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!”
The long suffering Job 19:25-27, NIV

“…we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him…”
The Apostle Paul in Romans 8:28, NIV

Then Job replied to the Lord: I know that you can do all things, 
no purpose of yours can be thwarted. You asked, Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge? 
Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.
Job 42:1-3, NIV

NOTE: There are "elk" pictured in this video when the narrator is referring to "deer." This is because the narrator is British and the British word for "elk" is "red deer" or "deer" for short. The scientific report this is based on refers to elk so we wanted to be accurate with the truth of the story.

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.
