Question? Since all of humanity has been reconciled and saved and adopted and included in the life of the Triune God, WHY IS THERE SO MUCH EVIL IN THE WORLD?

Most of humanity does not know or realize that they are included in the life of God nor do they know Who they are in Jesus. Their only motivation is fleshly from self directed objectives and desires. Couple this with the fallen nature all humans have inherited from the "first Adam" and you have a classic recipe for all sorts of evil from that deceitful heart in all humans.

Then, as if this were not enough, throw into the mix the evil influences of Satan who is the "god of this world" ( II Corinthians 4:4) and also the "prince of the power of the air" ( Ephesians 2:2) and you have the leader of a powerful evil combine mentioned in Ephesians 6. This group of spirits continually war against humanity and influence all kinds of evil practices.

In the end, all evil will be destroyed, even death, and only life, love, relationships, beauty, and glory in the presence of God will endure forever.

Just how God is going to do all of this is in His sights now. But, in Jesus it is as good as done.

May God hasten that day.

Pastor Paul




Paul, are you saying that the fact that all humanity has been reconciled, saved, adopted and included in the life of the Triune God really doesn't change anything for the time being?
We all seem to live in a world of "towers of Siloam" and share the same experiences.
If it's the believer's awareness of a better future that makes for a better present then why isn't that the focus of the message that's being shared today?
It seems this brief post of yours is an exception rather than the rule.

It changes everything for the person who accepts it and believes it. Their life is changed by their change of mind--repentance--metanoia(Gk).

Compared to modern Western Christian Theological teachings based on Plato's Greek philosophy and Augustinian philosophy and Calvanism and Armenianism--Western Christian Theology--my post IS an exception.
