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 beleive in Jesus Christ
--abominable: wholely 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 diosobeying God) and trusting Jesus as having paid your penalty for sin (breakig God's laws) in full? Or are you going to reject Jesus?

THE GOSPEL
OF JESUS CHRIST

good news of the cross


The gospel is not social justice nor serving others. The gospel is love in action... Jesus Christ giving Himself so that you can be saved from the wrath of God.

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast [a]the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.
- 1 Corinthians 15:1-8
