I’ve been thinking about a few things lately and I came to think about good and evil. People ask me about why God would let bad things happen to good people, and I never had a direct answer to give them aside from “freedom of choice,”.
Now I’ve come up with an answer: God never said that he was good or evil. It simply said the he simply ‘was’. Evil is a very powerful device in this world. Bad things happen simply because good and bad is a circle. Everything is connected, including good and evil.
If God is only good, then there is a power equal if not * greater than He, Evil. If he is just evil, then that means that the Bible and all the ancient stories were all lies. Do you get my drift?
God doesn’t make bad things happen on his own. Everyone in life has planned out their path in life and bad things happen to teach us lessons that are critical to our very being. The same goes for good things. Everything teaches us.
* when I said that evil was stronger than good, I meant that it is more powerful in a sense where it teaches us better than anything else. But remember that good and bad are both a matter of view.
