  1. So who designs evil Jan, God doesn’t, He hates it, He does not cause us to suffer but does bring good out of everything for us who Love and obey Him, the rest reap the evil they sow the same as we do until we come to our senses and Repent accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

    Psalm 97:9-11 For thou, Lord, art High above all the earth thou art exalted far above all gods. Ye that Love the Lord hate evil He preserveth the souls of His Saints He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the Righteous and gladness for the upright in heart.

    Psalm 107:16-18 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities are afflicted.

    The teaching that claims that God deliberately inflicts us to mold and shape us has caused people to walk away from Christianity rejecting God as a Sadist and even out of fear to Suicide. We can’t really Trust someone whom we feel will deliberately hurt even if it is sugarcoated.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

    Proverbs 10:20-22 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.

    The Scriptures tell us Jan, it is slander to even say Believers do evil to bring good out of it, even more so to claim God does this, He is LOVE!. Romans 3:8

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

    • In all things we know we can trust His heart. He is a good good Father. Always. Who can know the mind of God that he should advise Him. His ways are far beyond anything we could ever conceive and always good and acceptable and perfect. In all questions we must begin with the premise that God is our Friend. He is is always light and there is no darkness at all in Him. Yet if you are convinced God is all knowing and all powerful you can be certain He is the prime mover, the beginning and the end of everything. Before creation God was the Lamb which was slain. Why?? Because He wants sons and daughters that are free in their will and love Him with all their hearts and minds and souls as He did them. He saw His angels treachery and treasons before He created them yet He still created them. He saw all the crooked roads mankind would choose yet He pressed on to be the Kinsman Redeemer. Who are we to define our circumstances as from the hand of evil or good when God says He is ALWAYS preparing a table for us in the presence of our enemies? Sometimes physicians must re-break in order to set, cut in order to mend, tear away on order to heal. The physician is seeing the whole and healed within his inflicting of pain. Michael Angelo saw the David inside the stone with every cut of his chisel. We are destined, in Christ, to ALWAYS win. We are more than conquerors. That’s our destiny. That’s how God sees us and purposes that not one encounter with disappointment, heartache, evil, is without the satisfaction of retribution and vengeance on our enemy and restitution and glory and honor for His kids. We are His posse, His priests, His ambassadors, His warriors, His heroes. His family.

    • As always, your responses are faithfully found in God’s word. You are a Berean and most noble of heart. May we always have courage to question and be the iron sharpening iron. God’s favor and joy fill your day!

      • Very True Jan, we are indeed more than Conquerors in Christ Jesus, which all of us that God knows as His own will be .

        What is a Doctor doing Jan, inflicting pain needlessly or healing what is already damaged ? God does not design pain for us to Mold and Shape us, He does this by giving us opportunities to choose to walk in the Spirit with His empowering, this puts our Carnal flesh to death and brings us close to Him and than Satan flees, he cannot stand goodness and evil cannot co-exist in Unity with what is good.

        As you know Jan I have have torn ligaments in my shoulder from an accident and yes accidents happen to most everyone so does chance happen too which is not always good and as we age our bodies wear out and people hurt us but before the fall these were not so. They are not from God but He heals through Medicine, Doctors or Natural remedies etc and at times He will heal Miraculously when needed. People will often respond to kindness and Love even when they perceive us to be their enemies but regardless we still need to forgive them. God also sends good happenings and blesses His Children greatly, protects our Soul and comforts us.

        Why did God create Satan and the Angels that followed him, why did He create you and me knowing we would hurt Him that our Sin would make it necessary for for His much Loved Son to have to suffer to redeem us and yes that we would suffer too because of sin in the World.

        Do you want to see your Children suffer Jan, would you plan for than to do so but what if you had a choice not to have them and never know their Love, so they would never know pain in this life would you rather have never known their Love.

        I have 7 Babies in Heaven that have only known Joy in God’s Arms and yes this comforts me but I have longed to hold them, to tell them I Love them, to hear their voices saying Mummy I Love you, to see them play, laugh and smile with joy but it was not to be, why I still don’t know, nor do the Doctors although a few things were suspected as the reason they did not survive but they were not confirmed. Did God kill them No! but He knew they would die and prepared and strengthened me for the heartache.

        He has filled my arms and heart with other peoples Children all my Life and I have known great Joy, yes sadness too but the Joy is so much greater. I wish we could have a cuppa together Jan, I would ear bash you for sure about the wonderful expressions of Love I have had from Children over the years..

        If we have no choice Jan but to do what is right we would have no free will, we would be Puppets, God does not want Puppets but for us to willingly choose to Love Him above all things and we all need to do this to be complete, we were Created to Love 100%.

        Yes we will reap the evil we sow, it’s God’s warning and discipline so that we will seek to do good and of course He knows those who will repent and choose Jesus as their Lord and Saviour even before we are conceived and by this foreknowledge He chooses us to be conformed into Jesus’ image, which means we will be Righteous in all our ways and this He has known from Eternity.

        If it was just to have your whole hearted Love Jan, God would have Created all He did even knowing you would hurt Him.

        Love always Hopes it does not give up!

        Christian Love Always – Anne.
