God dosent creates evil but he allows it to happen by just removing his hand from us when we dont obey him...yes he created humans but not all of the people are from him some are from the devil and he is there father and they do evil things beacuse they are his children..if we are Children of God then our lives will be according to hes word and people we know us they will tell the diffrence by just look at us what we do..not by our words but by our deeds beacuse lots of people are calling them selves christians today but if you look at there life its nowhere near to the word of God and they just embaress christianty...
Did God create evil? If my son chooses to disregard what I have taught him and goes off and commits evil acts, I suppose you could say I created that evil because my son came from me. So indirectly not directly, the evil was part of what I created. I don''t believe God creates evil but what He did create chooses to do evil. (Right or wrong, just another way to look at the question) God Bless
I just wanted to say that all this things happen cause God Loves us and he dosent wants us to go the wrong way first all of is a movie theater for christians?...i dont think so people are going there and filling themselves with evil by watching the moives and after we ask God why is my life like this...for us Christians we need to wake up and dont cross the line that God made beacuse his Yesterday today and forever the same his word dosent change so maybe we just need to look over our lifes and ask ourselves am i doing the things that Jesus would do?...would Jesus go to a movie Theater with you? the answer is clearly no so if we are going to the places where Jesus woudnt go we cant expect him to protect us we always have to be in that place where he wants us to be..imagine if we we all people would instead of watching some kind off movie rather read the Bible and prayed how much the world would be better its just so much people are blinded and think they arent thats why we ask him questions why?...God Bless You all!!!
Thanks Todd for your reasoned response. I don''t want to belabor the point or be contentious in any way, however, the Bible clearly indicates that God has a wrathful side. Who is going to bring wrath and judgement during the Tribulation? I know it''s not popular to bring up the subject of God''s wrath in this age of tolerance. However, we cannot simply try and explain away these scriptures that mean exactly what they say. Here is another one to consider: Proverbs 16:4 “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the WICKED for the day of EVIL.” God bless!
What happened in Aurora was a moral evil, which is not the "evil" under discussion in these texts. Your application of evil in these texts cannot be reconciled with James 1:13 nor with 1 Corinthians 10:13. Moreover, accusing God of creating moral evil denies his utter holiness (Hab 1:13).
Lee, Thanks for the message. However, I think we need to be careful about making the statement that God is not the author nor the Creator of Evil. The Bible clearly states that He did create it! He also brings it upon His creation. I am not trying to refute the basic premise of your message. Just urging caution about that blanket statement. Please reference these verses from the KJV. Isaiah 45:7 “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create EVIL: I the LORD do all these things.” Jeremiah 44:2 “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein.” God bless!
An illuminating and fascinating message on John 14:6.
I''ve never heard it put so transparent as you put it. I believe in my heart- that Jesus is looking out through the glass darkly of the word of understanding. The glass darkly of the word of God on those words are clear without a spot or blemish. I believe you got it in all your getting, you have an understanding that Jesus is the only way.
