One of the hardest questions that I believe there is for a Christian to answer is why God doesn’t intervene to stop evil or at least stop those who are doing evil in some way. Ravi is asked this in a very pointed question in this video and I think he does a great job answering. . . check it out.
This is the second post in a series answering the question of how evil exists in a world that is ruled by an all powerful and all good God. If you have not read the first blog I suggest that you read it here.
A paradigm shift that I think all Christians need to make when dealing with the problem of evil is that God is not concerned with making us happy He wants to make us good. We usually have in our minds that Gods greatest goal is for our happiness and this is frankly not the case.
Gods greatest goal for us is to become good, not for us to be happy.
