lmarion is ignorant of even the basic tenants of the Bible and the issues involved as to why God allows wickedness in this world. First off the world God created was two perfect human beings in a paradise called the garden of Eden. Their existence in their surroundings was so perfect that even though they were naked, they were not suffering from any kind of exposure, they couldn’t even stub their toes or injure their unprotected feet. There was no shortage of food even though they knew nothing about farming.

Now along comes Satan, who sows the seeds of dissatisfaction, and convinces them that God is being oppressive in his ruler ship over them, by not allowing them to eat from ONE tree in all the garden. That ONE tree was only there as a symbol of His sovereignty over them. In other words His right to decide what is RIGHT and what is WRONG.

Satan made many accusations, such as the creation itself (mankind) was flawed, that God could not rule the universe by love, that no could live forever and not sin, but most of all he made the accusation that mankind would be better off ruling itself, but of course with his help.

So God in his infinite wisdom decided to let all His creation, both in heaven and those upon the earth to see for themselves who was right and who was wrong. Satan or God. This of course would be a limited and an only one time demonstration for all time the folly of disobeying His sovereignty.

At the moment that the transgression occurred in the garden of Eden He went into a covenant with His son for a Kingdom. That if he would give up his lofty position in heaven and come to the earth as a man and teach the world about His justice and wisdom and what He had planned for the future of mankind. And then after that task was finished offer that perfect life up, so the benefits of that life could be applied to obedient mankind on behalf of the perfection that Adam had so callously thrown away. And his reward would be ruling the earth for a thousand years and bringing the earth and mankind back into a state of perfection and reconciling mankind back to God.

Now because of Satan and his accusations the arrest, conviction, and execution of Jesus was brutal. God had to let it occur the way that it did because Satan would have simply said you made it to easy for him. We know this is true because of the account of Job.

So Jesus proved that even under the most adverse conditions a perfect man could maintain his integrity to God if he so choose. Even right at the end of his dying on the stake, when God pulled back His protection from His son, which made him cry out “Father why have you forsaken me,” he maintained his integrity. And God had His answer to Satan’s accusation, “You made it to easy for him.”

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
