Why Is There Evil in the World?

March 20, 2007

Why is there evil in the world?
It’s quite simple actually.

God loves us. Therefore He lets us choose our actions. Thus, we (since we are sinful-Genesis 3) choose to do evil.

So why is there evil in the world?
Because of usnot God.

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
-Romans 1:28-32

  1. Nice post.

    Short, simple, and thought provoking.

    It cuts right to the point of many a sermon. This leads me to the question though, “Why can’t pastors be as short as you?!?!?!” hahaha

    Seriously though, awesome post…. Or blog… or whatever its called.
