If God is perfectly good (and He is)... and if God is all powerful (and He is), why doesn't God stop evil?

Why Doesn't God Stop All Evil?

God can stop and destroy all evil. And He will do so in the future. Why not now? The reason involves something you do not want to hear.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23

So what? I've done a few things wrong. I've sinned.

"The wages of sin is death." - Romans 6:23

So what, we're all going to die. And that is true. We all die physically, but you need to know there is a second death.

“But, for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” - Revelation 21:8

Some definitions related to Revelation 12:8:
--cowardly: those who were afraid to continue in the faith
--unbelieving: those who refuse to believe in Jesus Christ
--abominable: wholly caught up in wickedness
--murderers: those who murder, either physically or through hateful thoughts (Matthew 5:21-22)
--immoral: engaged in sexual sin
--sorcerers: includes drug users
--idolaters: anything that is more important than God
--liars: liars

Here is the answer to "so what?" -- Without Jesus Christ, all of the above types of people (everyone) end up in the lake of fire (evil destroyed), which is called the second death. This is an important truth. You are eternal. Your existence will continue forever. You will either be with God (life) or totally separated from God (second death). Which do you choose? The time is coming when God will destroy all evil. Are you going to chose Jesus... repenting (turning away from disobeying God) and trusting Jesus as having paid your penalty for sin (breaking God's laws) in full? Or are you going to reject Jesus?

HE KNOWS EVERYTHING!

hiding from God


You cannot hide anything from God, and you can't hide from God:

'Can a man hide himself in hiding places So I do not see him?' declares the LORD 'Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?' declares the LORD. - Jeremiah 23:24

Imagine you have an SD card in your head that records every thought and dream. We record for a month and then rent a theater. All your friends are invited as we play that SD card on the big screen. How would you feel?

That's what God sees. He is disgusted and knows that because of your sin (those thoughts we all see on the big screen) you will never be with God. But God still loves you, and He made an incredible sacrifice for you. He died in your place.

You have a choice. Reject God... and get what you say you want... you'll spent eternity separated from God. And that means separated from EVERYTHING that is good. Think about that.

Or accept the gift God offers... trust that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty you've earned (remember those thoughts on the SD card). Jesus paid your penalty in full. It is finished

There is no darkness or deep shadow Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. - Job 34:22
