Is Evil From God?

Looking at the world and seeing all this sickness and suffering, one has to question where all this evil comes from.  From a Christian’s point of view, God created the world and everything in it.  So, did God create evil as well?

17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:

“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
19 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”

Genesis 3:17-19

God cursed the the earth because of Adam’s work…

But God also created a way for us to be saved.  He gave His only Son to redeem us from our sins.

This article from Answers from Genesis explains it well.

God is Merciful

What Cancer Cannot Do – Part 7

7. Cancer cannot destroy my faith in Jesus who bought me with a price

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Jesus died for us, He suffered death and the separation from the Father for us. Cancer is nothing compared to that. So, glorify God in whatever state you are in. This body is bought by Him anyway.

God is Merciful

Philippians 1:27-30

27 Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel,

We are not only to speak “Christianese,” we should be living a life that reflects Christ.  Jesus loves everyone and we are told to love your neighbor as yourself.  And it doesn’t matter who is watching or not, we should strive to be living epistles for the Gospel.

28 and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. 29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, 30 having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me.

Because of the hope we have in Christ and His salvation, we have nothing to fear from the enemy, that is, the Devil, he may throw all kinds of difficulties and obstacles at you, but you can rest assured that God is on your side and that He will not let you suffer from what you can not handle.  Standing strong in hard times and still conducting yourself worthy of the gospel, you will be a witness to this world.

God is merciful.
