Evil, Suffering, and Truth

Why does a loving God allow suffering and evil? Why doesn’t God take away all our temptation? Why do I keep having doubts about God and the Truth of His son Jesus?

Each one of us struggle with these questions at some point in our life journey.

Digging deeper into another tactic of Satan; using confusion and distraction to steal, kill and destroy. The main goal is to keep men in darkness and unable to hear the Gospel. Proverbs 4:19 states: “But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”

Read the below two chapters in my book Flesh Tamers: Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm. (Yes, ladies, you can read it too) Then answer the questions below for yourself.

Chapters to Read:A Reason for Evil, Suffering and Temptation
Truth: The Ultimate Battle

Below is a short excerpt from the book on the topic of suffering.

Constant contact and conflict with evil and oppression of all kinds are necessary actions of the moral effort of developing true Christlike manliness. To learn not to shrink from conflict, a man must face conflict. Jesus Christ did not ever shrink from conflict with evil, even when He knew at that moment, He was going to feel the strike of human pain both emotionally and physically. Certainly, He felt hunger during His temptation in the wilderness. He felt heart ache many times, but most certainly as Lazarus is dying and his family mourning. He felt disappointment as he is betrayed and when His disciples leave Him. He suffered with the feeling of separation from His father as He hung on that cross with the sins of the world on His shoulders.

Below is a short excerpt from the book on the topic of Truth.

Facing and believing the truth is one of the most important trials for man in this fallen world.  It is crucial to be an objective observer of what is, rather than what you wish it were.  A real man calls it like it is and refuses to look away from actual reality.  The most important truth is that the God of the universe who created all things, came as a man to take on our sin, and then hung on a cross for it, rising from the dead three days later.  In so doing, He destroyed death, and now we await His return when He will not come humbly, but in blazing glory with His powerful angels to bring judgment on the earth and gather up His Church.

Read John 13:26-38 and answer the following questions:

  • What Truths was Peter unable to grasp?
  • Why did Jesus want Peter to know the Truth?
  • Can you think of any Truth in your own life that you struggle to accept? How would your life be different if you could accept it?

Memorize and meditate this week on John 8:32, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (NASB).

My Elite Training Aid

It doesn’t matter if you are doing cardio, resistance training or power focused exercise, training the body each day depletes vital nutrients from our bodies. That’s why proper nutrition is important.

One of the supplements I use is called Elite. It isn’t my only source, but it has a distinct set of vital nutrients to help me relax, reset my hormonal balance, and fortify my body’s needed nutrients.

Create Your Own Branded App (Like I Did)

Do you coach clients, either full time or as a side/passion job?

Maybe you are a pastor or church that wants to have an app to share video or written lessons with your members on a nightly or weekly schedule. Are you a health coach, and you want to teach others how to eat clean, healthy food? Or possibly you are a sports coach or fitness professional (Yoga anyone?). Want to teach others how to play piano?

I wanted the Flesh Tamers Fitness app to allow me to coach fitness clients with timed and sequential daily routines and allow me to create Bible studies with videos and the written word.

The branding part was important. I didn’t want to be part of someone else’s app. I wanted my brand. I wanted my logo to be the icon that my clients clicked on their phone or tablet. Not Facebook and not some other social media platform.

By combining the online coaching “craze” that’s taken over the world, paired with in-person coaching, it’s possible to reach people across the world… While delivering a higher level of service to in-person clients, with extra benefits, support, and education. And it’s all fully automated.

The result?
Happier clients and/or more engaged members
More freedom
Healthier bank balance

But building an app sounds complicated, right? It doesn’t have to be!

When I found Dan Harvey’s webinar and saw all the benefits that Passion has to offer – I jumped on it. He has helped me build an app for my own coaching business and it’s revolutionized my relationship with my clients. Flesh Tamers Fitness is my passion.

With the help of Dan and his team, I now have an online coaching business that works on MY TERMS and my clients love the new experience with my app.

Dan will show you how to transition your coaching business online. He’ll help you understand your target customer and how to reach them and he’ll even show you how to get paid to build your app! Really.

I want to recommend his upcoming training that set me on the path! Register for it here: https://onechristianman.com/lets-build-an-app-for-your-passion/

He covers:
∙How to create your app 10x quicker and cheaper than you think
∙How to turn strangers into clients… on autopilot
∙How to get paid up to $10k to launch your app

The last section is my FAVORITE – really clever and honestly mind-blowing because I always thought it would take forever to build an app and would end up getting really expensive. But Dan’s approach totally flipped my perspective.

The free training is about an hour-long, and worth every minute!
I highly recommend checking it out.
