Suffering was extreme during the time of Jeremiah. The Babylonians surrounded Jerusalem and “The siege will be so terrible that the people inside the city will eat one another and even their own children.” (Jeremiah 19:9)
Innocent children suffered during this time because of the foolishness of kings, prophets and other leaders. Where was God? God has all the power and we say that God is all loving. How can he allow for such misery?
