Why Was Sin Permitted? — 5 Comments

  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!
