I’ve been asked a number of times in my life questions such as:
If God is so good then why does He ‘send’ people to hell?
Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?
Both questions sound the same but are not, as one deals with eternity whilst the other is referring to those alive on earth today.
These questions can be answered very bluntly, by me saying that 1) God does not send people to hell, they simply choose to go and 2) God does not want bad things to happen to anyone, but sin and the devil most assuredly do.
There are those who make God their enemy in their inability to understand His ways, but the truth is that the real enemy is the one promoting this confusion, catastrophe and delusion.
Satan, is the author of lies and deception, as well as the source from which evil is produced. Our God by a simple word or snap of a finger can remove free-will and create a world of peace as we would have no other choice but to obey Him, yet love is not manipulative or domineering. God who is Love, therefore gives us the freedom to serve and obey Him as well as the freedom to disobey and rebel.
Who can be blamed for the evil in this world? I can only blame myself, for if sin is within me then I must banish it from my thoughts, my lips, my heart, my life. If we all take responsibility for abolishing all sin without compromise, imagine the world we would be living in today.
Unfortunately, as the Bible states, “Many are called but the chosen are few” and few there maybe thay read such a post as this and fewer thus that will take action.
