  1. Hallo, Why sin was permitted has been my long time question. I thank God I came across this. Am now understanding why. Blessings.

  2. Why was sin permitted for such a long time? Satan has already been given enough time to fully develop his principles, to the extent that even the Son of God was crucified. All we are seeing is repetitive evil. Is it necessary? Can someone answer this question?

  3. You say we must use the Bible to fight the devil, but I many people who believe in God bad things happen to them. And He says He is testing us, but I do not understand why he hurts us like this, isn’t he supposed to love us and be our father and protect us. He allows stuff like COVID-19, why?

      Yes, many question God in these difficult times. But it is not a vengeful God that allows tragedy to happen to the world. The World is under a curse inflicted upon us by the treachery of the adversary of God - Satan. God provided a way for us to be saved out of this world doomed to destruction.
      Continue to faithfuly search the Scripture to find answeres to questions like 'why bad things happen'. See how God has led His people through turmoil and distress home to meet Him in Jesus. Remember always the assurance we feel when we trust Him. God's words in Psalm 23 will comfort all who trust in Him.

      We grieve when we experience loss, we rejoice when we experience blessings, and God continues to work in mysterious ways.
      Rom.8:23-28 - v.28 'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the Called according to his purpose'.

      God gave us His precious gift of Faith, directing us to use this Faith to support our walk with Him. Only Faith helps in times when we do not know the answers to our 'why' questions.

      God does not change - Heb.13:8. We can rest assured that God will never leave us or forsake us: Deut.31:8. When doubts arrise or hope grows weak, then we insist to walk by Faith.

      Matt.22:36-40 - We determin to continue by Faith to love our Heavenly Father and our Savior with all our heart, mind and soul. We are assured that He will guide our thoughts and strengthen our heart.
      He offers you to turn to Him in time of need, speak to Him and ask Him your questions. Ask Him to guide you to find His answers when searching His Word of Truth.
      God bless you!

  4. With this heading " Why was sin permitted" many people do believe that the is God who permitted the sin! I expected the the above passage to elaborate openly the following at black and white level:
    - The creator is one then who created the sin ?
    - On creating Lucifer, this bad attitude in him together with its cause in the heaven and on earth as well was not detected (overseen)? Is there any power refused the God to see that?
    - I do not believe that is the God who permit sin and at the same time to send His bogotten son for salvation; why to do so?

  5. To help vindicate God.To show God's love for fallen humanity through repentance and confession to repopulate heaven with the ransomed of earth.To involve the entire universe in seeing God's love for His subjects.

  6. The succinct answer to the question of why sin was permitted is this:

    God wants the service of love from all His creatures—service that springs from an appreciation of His character. He has no pleasure in forced obedience. He grants freedom of will to everyone, that they may freely give Him service.

    God created all beings with free will, because only with free will is love possible. He was willing to take the terrible risk of sin and giving His life to and for humanity so that free will would not be violated and love could flourish. That, in itself, reveals the loving heart of the Creator.
