Why so much Evil?

Can all the evil in the world be explained?

There are many who look at the world and say there couldn’t be a God, because of all the evil and suffering.

The thinking is that if a loving God exists, then He would help out the hungry, sick and needy.

The Bible says that God created the world and it was good (Genesis 1:31). Man was given a free will and he chose to rebel against God. As a result, sin entered into the world (Romans 5:12). The corrupted nature of man is the cause of much evil that can be seen in the world (James 1:13). Creation was cursed because of the fall (Romans 8:22). This is the explanation for the natural disasters that are happening.

The question is asked: if God is all-powerful then why does He not put an end to evil? To answer this we must be honest with ourselves and realize that we are not right with God. We sin on a daily basis. If God were to put an end to evil today then that would mean that He would have to judge us all right now!

But God is love and He showed that when He judged His Son – Jesus Christ for our sins on the cross (John 3:16).

He will forgive our sins if we accept the payment that was made on our behalf on the cross.

The evil and suffering in our world are temporary. In the future God will make all things right again. You can be part of that perfect new world. Trusting what the Lord Jesus did for you is your only hope.
