Answers in Genesis A God of Suffering?, DVD

In a world that seems destined to suffer tragedy after tragedy, it's understandable that people want to know why, if there is a God, he would allow such horrible events to take place. Dr. Tommy Mitchell here answers that question with tact and empathy. Shot on location in the Katrina devastated town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, you'll be encouraged with the interviews of Katrina victims and see how their faith allows them to walk on, convinced that the Lord they serve won't abandon them in this trial. Region Code 1-6. Approx. 45 minutes.

I was disappointed with this video because Dr. Mitchell would have us believe that catastrophies, disease and suffering are purely as a result of sin being in the world in general, rather than as a direct result of individual sins. I do not believe this to be accurate in light of many scriptures which show otherwise, such as Sodom and Gomorrah, David's sin with Bathsheba, and in the New Testament the story of Ananias and his wife Sapphira who lied about the price they received for their property. In each of these instances, God dealt directly with each of their sins. If we are to believe that God no longer punishes us directly for our sin, why should we have fear of the Lord? But Dr. Mitchell's viewpoint is a "safer" view as it is less likely to "offend" anyone and I am sure there are many who share it.
