How many times have people decided to not follow God because of all of the evil, sickness, and death in this world? They do not believe that a God that is good should allow these things to happen in the lives of “good” people. How would you answer this common objection?
One thing people do not realize is this: If God decided to rid all of the world of evil tomorrow, they would be part of that number. God says,
“THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE; 11 THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS,
THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; 12 ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS;
THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD,
THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE” (Romans 3:10-12).
If God were to destroy all of the evil on this planet, there would not be that many people in this world. We all have done evil in the sight of God. God is the only One that is Good.
