Matt Chandler, lead pastor of The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, has identified misconceptions many Christians have when it comes to suffering and shared how believers can live in joy when times of sorrow come.

In a recent interview with The Gospel Coalition, Chandler said many Christians are “ill-prepared theologically to understand suffering.”

“The errors tend to be, people have an over-realized eschatology or an under-realized eschatology,” he explained. “And when you err in either one of those directions, it actually adds a greater burden to the suffering itself.”
