The age old question


It is the age old question.

Why does God, if there is one, allow so much evil in the world.

As one preacher put it, God is not in control. If “He” were, there would be no evil.

Even the Bible says God created evil. The Lord creates evil by allowing us to be free.

However most people don’t believe in freewill. If you don’t have freewill, then you are a slave or a robot.

Calvinistic types believe if God is sovereign then man can’t be free. So salvation must be predetermined. Atheists are educated enough to know man is a free agent, but they wrongfully assume there must not be a god.

How can God be sovereign and give man free will?

Maybe the Divine freely gives up part of His sovereignty so His beloved can be free, though free to choose a right relationship with the Divine over the carnal pleasures of the world.

God never technically killed anyone in the Bible days. He just allowed them to wipe each other out. But those that trust in the Divine are always protected.

If humans go extinct in the next 100 years, once again the righteous will be protected and left over to repopulate.

As in the days of Noah. . .or like Jesus prophesied regarding AD 70. The world ended a long time ago. We are just the leftovers.
