If we leave rational paradigm of thought and go in to emotional one, the problem of evil is not logical or philosophical anymore, but it is existential. The simple form of this problem is that the relationship with God above all relations needs trust, safe, and satisfaction. But the problem is that the people who are suffering are not psychologically able to continue loveing and worshiping God. They are not satisfied with God and feel God's silence and absence. Logical answers (defences) and philosophical answers (Theodicies) are totally irrelevant and donot work at all. Man in this situation doesnot nead reason or argument but meaning. The meaning of suffering can gives his relation with God meaning again. In this paper we review on some meaning of suffering which Christian theologian find to solve the existential problem of evil.
