2 views on suffering – Warfare vs Blueprint – Kurt Jaros & Ken Brownell

Is suffering planned as part of God’s sovereign will? Or is God not to blame, as suffering is the result of an ongoing cosmic spiritual battle?
Ken Brownell is a Calvinist pastor and seminary teacher believes the ‘blueprint’ model – that both good and evil are ordained by God as part of his eternal purposes. He discusses the issue with theologian Kurt Jaros who defends a ‘warfare’ model, popularised by bible teachers such as Greg Boyd, that suffering is not ordained by God but is a result of an ongoing cosmic spiritual battle between free creatures.
