Why Is There So Much Evil, Pain & Suffering? by Valerie Cheers Brown

Why does God allow so much evil, pain and suffering of the world?

This is a standout amongst the most troublesome inquiries in all of philosophy. God is everlasting, unbounded, omniscient, ubiquitous, and all-powerful. Why ought to individuals (not everlasting, limitless, omniscient, inescapable, or all-powerful) hope to have the capacity to completely comprehend God’s ways? The book of Job manages this issue. God had permitted Satan to do all that he needed to Job with the exception of

God is everlasting, unbounded, omniscient, ubiquitous, and all-powerful.

Why should humans (not everlasting, limitless, omniscient, inescapable, or all-powerful) hope to have the capacity to completely comprehend God’s ways? The book of Job manages this issue.

“The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be commended” (Job 1:21). Job did not comprehend why God had permitted the things He did, yet he knew God was great and consequently kept on confiding in Him. Eventually, that ought to be our response also.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

The scriptural answer is there are no “good” individuals. The Bible makes it liberally clear that every one of us are spoiled by and contaminated with transgression (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8). Romans 3:10-18 couldn’t be clearer about the non-presence of “good” individuals: “There is nobody honest, not in any case one; there is nobody who sees, nobody who looks for God. All have dismissed, they have together gotten to be useless; there is nobody who does great, not by any means one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues

All have dismissed, they have together gotten to be useless; there is nobody who does great, not by any means one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues hone trickery. The toxin of snakes is on their lips. Their mouths are loaded with reviling and severity. Their feet are quick to shed blood; ruin and hopelessness check their ways, and the method for peace they don’t have the foggiest idea. There is no trepidation of God before their eyes.”

Every person on this planet should be tossed into damnation at this present time according to God’s word.

Consistently every second we spend alive is by the beauty & grace of God.

Indeed, even the most loathsome wretchedness we could encounter on this planet is kind contrasted with what we merit, interminable hellfire in the pool of flame.

Even though God demonstrates His love for us regardless of our sins.

A superior inquiry would be “The reason does God permit great things to happen to terrible individuals?” Romans 5:8 announces, “Yet God shows his own particular adoration for us in this: While we were still delinquents, Christ died for us.”

Despite the insidious, evil, corrupt nature of the general population of this world, God still cherishes us. He adored us enough beyond words take the punishment for our wrongdoings (Romans 6:23).

On the off chance that we get Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16; Romans 10:9), we will be pardoned and guaranteed an everlasting home in paradise (Romans 8:1). What we merit is hellfire. What we are given is everlasting life in paradise on the off chance that we come to Christ in confidence.

Yes, here and there awful things happen to individuals who appear to be undeserving of them. Be that as it may, God permits things to happen for His reasons, regardless of whether we comprehend them. Most importantly, notwithstanding, we should recall that God is great, simply, adoring, and kind. Regularly things transpire that we essentially can’t get it.

Be that as it may, rather than questioning God’s decency, our response ought to be to trust Him. “Trust in the LORD with everything that is in you and incline not all alone understanding; in all your ways recognize Him, and He will make your ways straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Why did God permit 9-11 to happen?

I often wondered that if God is a good God, why would 9-11 have happened?

Maybe it is to bring a greater good of this world and when we don’t come together on our own He knows how to bring us all altogether.

“It was so ironic how right after 9-11, we in this country were so divided and were a polarized country,”  one could say.

That following couple of months we were so up in heavel that we couldn’t even decide on who we wanted for president.

A few weeks later after 9-11, we were lined up giving blood.

Now, if that is not love, I don’t know what isn’t!

They even took prayer out of school and when 9-11 happened you could not even find a school where children were not praying.

I honestly do believe, people who did not believe in God believed in Him, if not but for only a second.

God knows how to get our attention, doesn’t He?

So, in conclusion, “Why would a good God cause bad things to happen to good people?”

There is trauma unfortunately which is necessary in God’s eyes to make this world a better world and come together as one!

Just like steel gets stronger with fire, God has to put us through the fire in order for us to become stronger and come together.

If you do what is easy in your life without Christ, your life will be hard.

If you do what is hard in your life with Christ, your life will be easy.

God may not come when we need Him, but we can always believe that when He comes, it is right on time!
