If God is Good?

How many times has this thought crossed your mind? You may not want to admit it but you know that it has. As a Christian you may even be ashamed to confess that there have been times you have thought that if God is good then why does He allow all the evil in the world. I know that I cannot answer this question completely but I want to give you just a little something to think about. In the beginning when God created everything He said that it was good. Through the deception of Satan we find that sin and death came into the picture. Since then, man has had to experience wars, death, destruction, heartache, disease and you know I can go on. Jesus Christ died on the cross for His people that would believe upon Him and in the end God is going to destroy all the evil and wickedness and cast it into the lake of fire. God is good and sin and Satan is bad. The awful things we see and experience today are due to the effects of sin upon mankind and one day God is going to destroy all the bad forever. There are really two forces today at work. There is good and there is evil. Ironically, there are many people on the side of Satan and the devil, who are still living in their sin and saying, “If God is good then why all the pain in the world?”¬†They are choosing sin that is to blame for all the evil and bad in the world and then standing in opposition to Christ, Who alone is purely good. If you truly want to be on the side of good then repent and turn from sin which is bad and believe on the pure, good and holy Jesus Christ, Who died on the cross to conquer sin and evil.¬†
