Write an essay comparing suffering and how to address it in Christianity with suffering and its resolution in either Hinduism or Buddhism. ------ Suffering can lead to spiritual growth because in purpose to make the step upward to get better niche, first it needs to make the step downward. All three religions try to use suffering for good. How does Christianity cope with suffering? Christians pray to God for help and by faith rest in peace knowing that things will get better and God will help. They believe that someday the suffering on earth will end because when they get to Heaven there will be no more tears. Christians believe that they suffer because they were born with the original sin, and also because they live in a fallen world. Here is the quotation of the pastor, "When sin entered the world, death entered. Chronic pain, illness, and disease are a form of death." So Christians are supposed to accept suffering as an unavoidable time of their life, encouraging themselves to tolerate suffering with hope it will lead them to the life on the Heavens. They repeating some quotations from Bible with hope they will help them: "Suffering produces intimacy with God" (Job 42:5). "Suffering equips us to comfort others" (2 Corinthians 1:3-5). "…I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction" Isaiah 48:10 Suffering produces growth and maturity (James 1:2-4).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
