I am sorry if it came across that way. Let me ask you then to gain clarity. Are you fluent and educated in Hebrew?
Secondly, typing in caps is considered yelling. Let's just talk in calm peace please. Thank you, God bless.
I feel like I need to apologize to you for the post earliar about your statement that "God created evil".
I have read it over a few times and it was out of character of me to be so brutally opinionated on your thoughts about the subject so I do apologize. to you for the hashness of the words I said.
I like everyone else have many problems to confront every day. I have always been a very passionate person.
I am passionate about My God, my family and and my country. I sould be as James tells us, in his book, chapter 1:17-18..."be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath".
It is just that at my age and the experiences I have had through this life, I can not in any way believe that God would intend evil on His children. Chatisement, YES, correction YES. But evil, no.
At the age of 4 years I opened the back door of my fathers car and fell out onto the highway and the doctors told my parents that I would not live. BUT God in His goodness had allowed the head nurse from the local hospital to be the car right behind my dads car and because of her actions, I did in fact live and now for about another 60 or so years.
I survived a plane crash at the age of 16.
I survived the combat of Vietnam and without a doubt should have died except by the grace and goodness of God.
If He was the author of evil, then He certainly would not be a good God that is worthy of worship and praise, much less trusted to have our well-being in mind. The idea of a good God creating His own enemy and the object of His wrath seems inconceivable. It would be inconsistent for a good God to mastermind the idea of evil, will it into existence, and still be considered a good God.
Rather, God created man in His image with the freedom to choose. With this freedom came the opportunity to rebel against Him. Man did rebel ( Genesis 3 ), and the rest is history. The annals of human history chronicle how God uses everything -- even the chaos of this world -- to bring about His glory and purposes. Those purposes include our growth in becoming more Christlike.
Heres hoping you understand.
