Hello Doc,<quoted text>Yes,John,it is strange how some evil people are allowed to continue in their evil ways before God intervenes. But the same could be said about Satan himself: WHY?? Why is God allowing Satan and his evil,wicked fallen spirit being followers to continue,instead of stopping them and destroying them,now?? Well,probably for two very important reasons. First,because our thoughts are not God's thoughts,and our ways are not His ways. Yes,I'm very certain that the Lord SEES all of the sinful,evil,WICKED things that godless,Christ-rejecting men are committing in this world. And I KNOW that He harbours HOLY,JUST ANGER towards the wicked for their deeds. Especially their deeds towards those who are helpless to defend themselves against their WICKED WAYS. And that is why I know the Lord has NATURALLY put it in the hearts of the law-enforcement people of this nation and world to seek and to punish those who would delight themselves in evil,wicked acts against society. And another reason I firmly believe that the Lord has suffered Himself to allow evil to continue in this world is because the appointed time for the eternal doom of Satan and his fallen angels has arrived,and because the Lord is making EVERY EFFORT,through every avenue,whether it's human,written,or technological,the Lord wants to harvest as many human souls as possible before the very end comes. You know,it's REALLY REALLY sad that it will take something as awful and evil as the reign of the anti-christ in the very end-time to convince millions and probably billions of people to finally open their spiritual eyes and R-E-A-L-I-Z-E that...CALVARY is what they where needing all along. The REALITY of anything,any religion,that keeps a person from the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ just shows how firm a grip Satan the devil has had on the minds,the hearts and the souls of unbelieving people in this world. And he will FIERCELY attempt to retain every soul that has lived their lives for him in rebellion against the Lord Jesus Christ the Saviour. Have a blessed day,brother.
You have echoed there some of the things I have put to God. I have even been guilty of asking God whose side he is really on. Oh yes I have! Things like the Taliban and Al Qaeda? Chemical warfare? Nuclear Bombs? These things exist because of the evil in man. These things are acts of men. Mankind made in God's image. God is love. It's clear to me that mankind is not in God's image. The fall of mankind has to be true. It's Christ who brings us to God's image.
God bless you. Have a great day.
