Another Cause for Pain and Suffering in the World
The last post relating to the question “what are some causes suffering in the world” we looked at one cause for suffering being the devil. We know although God is Lord over everything, satan along with his angels rule this world thanks to the sin of Adam and Eve. We know he will be cast out of this world at the final judgement “Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. (John 12:31) But until then evil is very much alive and present, doing his best to fool you and me into joining him in hell by getting us to act against God. Evil reigns prevalent over the earth and over us and as you can see is doing a bang up job of getting people to embrace the smallest sins announcing them good for the soul and persecuting those who refuse to adopt their twisted logic.
Now we move on to some ways we let evil in our life. And this is the truth everyone hates to admit, that we all sin everyday. ( 1 John 1:8) People like to believe sin is reserved for murderers and thiefs, you know only the really bad guys. What kind of person are we? Who we are, how we act, what we think and what we say absolutely has consequences to the kind of life, experiences, relationships, work and family atmosphere we exist in.
…Are you telling me if I cheat on a test or lie to my boss I’m the cause of some bad stuff in my life? …Are you telling me that although my wife and I are Christians but because we don’t read the Bible or celebrate God in our house bad things can happen?(well that disqualifies you as a Christian) …Are you telling me, a Christian, that because I haven’t cared that my boyfriends weren’t Christian that that’s why all my relationships have been crap?…….Yup, yup and defiantly yup!
