10 thoughts on “Thank God that evil exists”

  1. Yet it is not wrong to say God created ‘everything’ and knew that things would ‘unfold as they have done…. Ie he knew that by creating such independent beings that this also created *the potential for evil*… and that Lucifer…. and Man would eventually ‘Fall’.
    Yet as God (whom sets the rules) His Holiness, and right to create such a reality cannot be deemed to be wrong, by us creatures who dont set the terms of morality. We may not like it… yet we are not God’s judges. And The evil is only one part of the story. God will execute justice upon evil doers. And God himself has Moved to Redeem whosoever will but call upon the Name of Christ.

  2. If God were only just then evil wouldn’t exist.
    Evil exists because God is also kind.

    You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

    To be sons of God should we perpetually torment the wicked?
    I say no.

  3. That God is Good… and trustworthy was the point of God’s test of Adam and the forbidden Fruit. Adam Ought to have had *Faith* in God’s goodness, and trusted that God had Righteous reasons for his prohibition.
    Satan spread the Lie that God was ‘holding out’ on some good thing.
