The one question that has always tripped people about God starts withWHY. Why is God who is so good can let evil happen to me, around me and to those I love?
I’m not the most religious or holier than thou person you would ever meet. In fact, I’m a failure in lots of areas, but I have read the Bible and asked myselfWhy did Abraham want to sacrifice Isaac to obey God?
Why didn’t God answer Jesus, His son on the cross when he asked Him: Why did you forsake me?
The one answer isLove.
I know, too simple right?
I wish it was. People respect power. Israel wanted an army king to come deliver them from the Romans’ hands and Jesus, son of God and Son of Man, showed up with a background in carpentry from a nothing town.
God could have and still can eradicate all evil and He will at one point.
With all the power He’s got, He couldn’t bring men to love Him so He gave up the one thing He loved the most to bring men to love Him like He always wanted to.
This is just a little bit of what I believe in, it has helped me and millions others. I wouldn’t kill anyone over it, but I hope one day to seize the extent of such love.
