Title: Why does God allow EVIL ?
Post by: ReasonableVoice on February 02, 2015, 08:24:18 PM
( This is not a question/answer that applies only to a certain organized religion )

Question:  Why does God allow EVIL ?

  Answer:   GOD is LOVE.


LOVE is the greatest GOOD.

The greatest GOOD for humanity is accepting GODís LOVE.
The greatest  EVIL  for humanity is rejecting GOD.

Genuine LOVE requires FREE CHOICE.

FREE CHOICE must allow all of the possible choices.  <-- core immutable point in answer to the question

To stop EVIL is to stop FREE CHOICE.
To stop FREE CHOICE is to stop LOVE.
To stop LOVE is to stop the greatest GOOD.
To stop the greatest GOOD is the greatest EVIL.

This is not a question/answer that applies only to a certain organized religion.

This is based on the hypothesis that . . . God is Love.

If anyone wants to call Love a who, a what, a why, or whatever,
then okay, but I see that as a distinction without a difference..

Personally, if God is not Love, then I want nothing to do with God.

Wouldn't it be team satan causing evil in the world?

I think what we have here is a false flag attack, the criminals are dressing up as Indians to get the Indians blamed for the criminal acts.

Only if 1) you believe in team satan
and 2) you don't believe that you(regardless of team satan) have free will to choose good or evil.


Personally, I believe each has free will to choose good or evil.

If each does have free will to choose good or evil
do all of those who choose evil become part of team satan ? :-0)

1) you believe in team satan
We don't have to use the term satan, we can just as easily substitute the word negative, they are equal, imo.

2) you don't believe that you(regardless of team satan) have free will to choose good or evil.
Why would free will alter anything?  People switch hit all the time, sometimes they create positivity, and sometimes negativity.

I agree, it is very important to the reason we were put here.

They are, at least, batting for team satan.
How could it be any other way?
Satan is a spiritual being, not flesh and blood, he needs flesh and blood to work his plan.
When one chooses to create negativity in the world they are doing the work of satan.

Because having free will means it is the person's choice, not satan making the choice.

It could be another way because of this combination . . . freewill and imperfect

And imperfect is a result of choice by man.

Yes, the person is freely choosing to serve satan's ends, ie, creating negativity in the world.

As is the choice to do evil.

How did you come to the conclusion of what god has said?
