“Why doesn’t God stop the evil?”
Just heard a good thought:
A lot of people complain, “Why doesn’t God do anything about the evil in the world?”
And yet, these same people will read of the times in the Bible when God /did/ put a stop to the evil in the world (like when he brought plagues upon Egypt or destroyed the many wicked nations in the land of Canaan), and they’ll turn around and say that God is a violent, angry, evil god.
People, you can’t have it both ways.
God is God. He does whatever pleases Him. He is very patient (long-suffering), and yet He also does punish evil, wicked people for their atrocious actions. We only see glimpses of this now, but there is coming a day when Jesus will return with firey vengeance and He will make all things right.
The question is, are you ready for that Day? Jesus is the only Way of salvation — not Islam, not New Age beliefs, not Hinduism, not science or intellectualism, not praying to Mary or saints of old, not even going to church or being baptized or following the Law.
The ONLY way to be saved is by repenting of your sins and trusting in Jesus alone for your salvation. He came to this earth, He died the death you deserved to die, He rose in power with a resurrected life, and now He offers life to all who will call upon His Name.
Then you will be ready to stand before Him on that great Day of judgment.
Because I’m here to tell you that God /will/ do something about the evil in this world.
But you need to ask yourself, will you be pleased when He does so? Or will you be taken away in the storm of His wrath?
