Why Doesn’t God Eliminate Evil & Hate?

Why Doesn’t God Eliminate Evil and Hate?

Why can’t we have this ‘heaven on earth’ now?
If God is so powerful certainly He could do that.


For now, evil and suffering is with us. But there
is a day coming where all will be changed. Evil
and death will be cast into the fiery lake forever.
The Redeemed will live with God where there
will no longer be pain and suffering.

“And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “..God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain;” (Revelation 21:3-4).

Still, why not do that now? Why must we endure this present darkness? The answer to this is more of a journey or a book. It begins in the Garden of Eden where sin entered humanity and ends when the Lord God creates the new heaven, new earth, and new Jerusalem. The vast majority of evil and suffering is a direct result of man’s choices. The bible says, “..there is no one righteous, not even one..” The good creation was marred by man’s choice to disobey God. Creation itself groans for that coming time of deliverance from sin. We are born into a world made chaotic and unfair by a humanity in revolt against it’s Creator.

Join the journey. Be thankful for blessings. Live in anticipation of the perfect heaven. Be a blessing. Be the good that you want to see. Love deeply.
