  • I will say one thing Think Logically, Dont confuse urself.. we are unable to create darkness.., In the absence of Light only Dark comes... Like this., We cant create Ice Individually, In the absence of heat only Cold comes.... So like this In absence of the Good only evil exists.... Ok., If everybody in the World Live according to God's Will, this earth will be Heaven.. God bless U Regards Reddy
    • bostjan64
      That is incorrect. darkness is the absence of light, light being a thing, and darkness being the lack of that thing. You can't correctly say that light is the absence of darkness, because that's a double negative. Likewise, since evil is an active state, and the universe was created good and evil came about through free will and resistance against God (according to the creation narrative), one cannot say that evil is the absence of good, so much as good is the absence of evil, with evil being the thing that goes against God, and good being the lack thereof.

      "You can't correctly say that light is the absence of darkness, " That's not what they said. They said, "In the absence of Light only Dark comes... " But more accurately should have said in the absence of light only darkness remains.
    • bostjan64
      Right. So: 1. Light is the presence of photons with energies between 1.6 and 3.3 eV. 2. Darkness, which is the absence of light, is the lack of those photons. 3. Darkness is the opposite of light. 4. Evil is the presence of moral transgression. 4. Goodness is the perfect lack of transgression. 5. Light is to evil as darkness is to good in the analogy.

      So many people claim to be logical while proving they are totally illogical, as you do here.
  • God gave us the ability to make choices, we choose our destiny. We can choose to do wrong and go to hell or we can choose to do right and go to heaven.
    • ReiSan
      But I hate both Heaven and Hell. If God is so good, he would give us many more choices than only, "Kiss my dirty 'ketsu' or be tortured forever,." That is no choice at all.. It is insanely tyrannical.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, Heaven is about being set free. Hell is about remembering the deeds you wish you have never done for an eternity. The choices are fairly clear.
  • James Chapter 1 says: ”When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death.” Much of this evil is a direct result from so many turning away from the living God. We are mistaken when we attribute evil things to the Almighty God, “ The Rock, perfect is his activity, For all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness, with whom there is no injustice; Righteous and upright is he.” Deuteronomy 32:4
    • ReiSan
      God is a psychotic sadist and a cruel tyrant who deserves no respect. The men who invented him were pathetically ignorant barbarians, so we cannot expect them to invent anything less than a barbaric deity.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      God stands for laws. It makes perfect sense to have laws in comparison to the unbelievers who violate God's Law. Think again when you use the word barbaric.
  • The problem with this argument is that it really only looks at it from the mortal perspective. God allows evil to happen. Therefore, God is either not omnipotent or He is either not caring or down right evil himself. Thus we try to create logical contradiction in an attempt to show that God cannot be what it is that He is claimed to be. (Can God create a stone so big that he can't move it?) Personally, these kinds of questions strike me being more of an attempt to find an excuse to disbelieve in God than they do an attempt to find greater understanding of him. The fact of the matter is that God has certain lessons that He wants us to learn. These lessons include learning the difference between good and evil and learning to choose good over evil. We cannot learn of one without experiencing the other. Without evil we can't appreciate good. You can argue that a omnipotent being should be able to design a system that does not require evil for us to learn these lessons and, therefore, God is either not omnipotent and/or not omnibenevolent. That's between you and Him, but I prefer to attribute the apparent conflict to our limit understanding of the divine. If you choose to use this reasoning to disbelieve in God, then that is between you and Him, but I think that you will find that all you do is hurt yourself in the end. God wants what is best for us. He designed a plan that would allow us to achieve that ultimate good if we will but do as He has instructed us to do. Yes, suffering and evil are a part of this part of our existence. However, mortality is but a moment, not even a blink of an eye in comparison to eternity. As terrible as the suffering endured by some in mortality may seem, it is nothing compared to the joy that can be ours in eternity. God does not take joy in our suffering, but He realizes that it is a necessary part of our education. This is also not to say that we should sit by and allow people to suffer because it is God's will that they suffer. It is not. Part of what we are to learn is how to look after each other and how work together to ease suffering and stop evil. However, it is up to each of us to decide where we will stand in the struggle between good and evil and where we will stand with respect to God.
    • ReiSan
      God is a psychotic tyrant.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReIsan, God is fair, He is not willing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
  • In Future Definetly He will Stop the Evil.., and will Create new earth and new Heaven.... Without evil..... I think this might be a gud answer...
    • ReiSan
      Why does he allow so much misery now? How many people will he send to Hell sadistically?
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, quote: "Why does he allow so much misery now?" In Ephesians 2:2, the Apostle Paul wrote that the course of this world flows in the direction of Satan, who is the prince of the power of the air. Satan being the god of the world has taken dominion. This is why misery exists.
  • The only answer to this question is..(If) there was a god he would be a sadistic monster not worthy of worship or obedience.
    • ReiSan
      Yes, you are quite correct.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Phil, disobedience to God's law brings corruption into our lives.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, phil is quite incorrect.
  • They ignore it, typically, because the majority of them are cherry pickers that attribute all good and positive occurences to their god and none of the blame for misfortune.
  • God, whatever its name is, the supreme being. I dont think the human being has the capacity to understand evil. what is happening with humans today isnt evil. its human nature. it is us. not another entity. its part of our grand design. we all die and graduate.
    • ReiSan
      That is an extremely bad design.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, it is actually a good design. Intelligent design can be defined as a theory that holds that certain features of living things were designed by an intelligent cause as opposed to being formed through purely natural means.
  • I`m not really religious,but do believe in God.And these things have worried me alot...I look at it this way,we are not supposed to know or understand everything.Bad things might need to happen for a reason.Domino effect,if this happens then that will not happen...We humans see death as bad,but I don`t think God sees it that way.We just can`t see the meaning,does not mean there isn`t one.
    • ReiSan
      Many events do not occur for any reason. You are blind to the misery in the world that God allows if he did exist.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, quote: "Many events do not occur for any reason." The supernatural is based on energy. Action is energy. Nothing can exist unless it is attracted.
  • The disciple James says this at James 1:13-15 - (James 1:13-15) When under trial, let no one say:
  • not sure how they cope with god and evil
  • All evil, no matter in what form, can beblamed on the influence of Satan. (Revelation 12:12) On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.
    • ReiSan
      A sane God would not allow this. This tale is quite absurd.
  • If evil did not exist, we would live in a world without morality. Satan is the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 4:4), (Ephesians 2:2) The Bible frequently uses the world to refer to the present evil system of opposition to God.
    • ReiSan
      Why would a decent god allow Lucifer to lead people to eternal torture. God is incompetent, uncaring, powerless, sadistic or juwst a cruded fictional character.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Quote: "Why would a decent god allow Lucifer to lead people to eternal torture." Freewill is a necessary condition for being morally responsible for one's actions, then the incompatibility of freewill and determinism would entail the incompatibility of moral responsibility and causal determinism.
  • When you read the bible it speaks that everything God created was good. That each seed shall bear after its own. When he made men he blessed them and gave them dominion over the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. He beheld everything and saw that it was good. Hence no killing for meat. When God made Adam he saw that he was lonely and so made Adam a help meet by taking Eve from his side, this is why God said that when a man leaves his father he shall marry his wife and cleave to them as the two shall become ONE flesh. When God made Adam and Eve they were naked but not ashamed. God told them not to eat from the tree of good and evil as on that day they'd surely die. The way he went about it was to say, if you obey your Father then you will have all your needs fulfilled, but if you disobey and do not believe what your father is saying is true, then you will die. When Eve was beguiled by the serpent (nachash meaning shining one, one who whispers or enchants) chose to eat the fleshy fruit because it looked good, and good to taste, and that it would make her wise, not only did they disobey God, through temptation but showed that they wanted to be like God, (pride) much like Lucifer, but they also did not trust God by their rebellion, they lost faith. Hence, pride goes before a fall. From then on God could not allow them to eat from the tree of life. As soon as Adam and Eve were separated from God they were aware they were ashamed, they were afraid of God a God that had walked with them in the garden. They had to leave Eden, bliss a state of fulfilment. Hence, God brought in the law, however man could not do as he should, he was persistently given into temptation to the flesh, but God brought it so man might be led to Christ (Gal). Since earthly Adam had lost faith in God, redemption would come through faith in heavenly Adam, Jesus Christ, who not only would overcome the curse and the law, but who would overcome death by dying in the flesh, and being resurrected so that all those who had faith in him would also die with him and been reborn of spirit as sons of God not of natural descent. Romans 8:3 John 1:13. Then the Holy Spirit of wisdom - John 14:15-17. The wheat and the tares parable explains that although we are from God the whole world lies in the power of the evil one 1 John 5:19, but until the kingdom of heaven, they are allowed to grow together. Isaiah 6 - 9 speaks of when it will be like before. Lucifers wisdom is corrupt - Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
  • Not saving someone's life is NOT the same as killing them.
  • What Glen Blaylock said!
  • How do they cope with those thousands of contradictions. Simpl, they just say "God works in misterious ways and a mortal can't understand". They havnow even taken that same mentality into politics so now when their politicians are demonstrated to be liars they simply say that all accusations are "fake media news". It's bullet proof ignorance.
    • Archie Bunker
      Yeah Joe, but alot of the media news is BS.
    • ReiSan
      Media is inherently deceptive at its roots. Media depends upon advertising for its main revenue, so it will praise highly any product that it is paid well to advertise, even if that product is pure junk. Many people love Rolex watches and Glock pistols, because th3e media praises them so much. Both brands are highly overrated by naive people who are slaves to media. The liberal media lies constantly about the POTUSA, and many media slaves mindlessly believe all of these inflammatory lies that are bringing civil war..
  • You see in the answers that they feebly try to excuse this extremely bad fiction that is so senseless. God is incompetent if he created humans who displease him so badly, he is coldly uncaring, he is a psychotic sadist who loves to kill and torture his creations or he is merely very bad fiction.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Quote: "God is incompetent if he created humans who displease him so badly," In a perfect Creation, mankind made the decision to disobey God. The ability to choose, think, and act voluntarily. For many philosophers, to believe in freewill is to believe that human beings can be the authors of their own actions and to reject the idea that human actions are determined by external conditions or fate.
  • Jehovah God IS going to eliminate evil...but with HIS own timetable...not ours,,,HE is giving us all plenty of time to change our ways...THEN he is sending Jesus...[ spiritually ] to sort us out...Revelation 6:2. And it is soon...ALL the signs are in place... And have been for 2,000 years... (2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away. Up till about 1900, not all the signs were...People then were mostly religious...but no more...
  • probably not that great
  • Thankfully God will get rid of evil and those who carry out evil acts ,God
