Why is there evil?
God is the source of all things good. He created a perfect world. In the beginning God gave the first man and woman equal dominion over all the earth. God gave them everything to live victoriously with Him in His perfect world of love and peace and no evil.
The first man and woman were created in the image of their Creator, one with good.
God gave the first man and woman the power of choice. Choose to partake of life, or to choose to partake of the knowledge of good and evil.The first man and woman chose to partake of this knowledge. As a result chose to be one with both evil and good. This activated evil into God’s perfect world, giving power to both evil and humanity’s selfish desires. Humanity continues to reproduce both into God’s once perfect world, lost in darkness. A darkness so heavy it could be felt.
God in His great love became humanity’s deliverer from evil, selfish desires and death, restoring peace and harmony to the universe. Evil is still in this world, yet God is working, even in the darkest places. God is gathering together in one all things, in heaven and earth, in Jesus, under His rule and reign.
In future time when Jesus returns, the fullness of His Kingdom> will be realised. Heaven and earth will become one and evil will be totally eliminated.
All who have received and believed in Jesus’ eternal flesh and blood sacrifice will enter into an everlasting state of perfect resurrected bodies. Bodies that never age, never wear out and never die. Together with God humanity will live in a renewed world of love, peace and no evil.
