If God is Good, Why Does He Allow Bad Things to Happen?

God created a perfect world.

Genesis 1:31 “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

God did not create death, diseases, or wars. These things came into God’s perfect world and wrecked it, when man disobeyed God.

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”

God loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son Jesus into the world to die for us so we can be saved by believing in Him.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Most of the problems in the world are caused by people refusing to accept God’s free gift of salvation.

The problems in the world are not God’s fault, they are the result of sin, at the very least Adam’s sin of eating the forbidden fruit.

People can have peace in their lives if they would simply obey God. Christians still have problems, because we live in a wrecked world. But God is always with us, and if we listen to Him, then He will give us wisdom on how to overcome our problems, and even how to avoid many problems. He will also give us perfect peace as we go through our problems.

Philippians 4:6-7 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
