Evil and Sin
God's attributes, traits, and character determine how He responds to evil. Mercy, grace, and holiness work together to save us as He upholds justice.
Day One: Is God evil?
The web site evilbible.com endeavors to do two things: (1) demonstrate that the Bible is not the Word of God, but instead is only a book written by "evil" men, and (2) disprove the God of Christianity...

Day Two: Is God cruel?

Day Six: God's Goodness and the World's Evil
The evil in the world did not come from God. If Adam and Eve had only obeyed God, then they may have lived on earth forever, walking with God, tending the garden, working together—what might God's "Plan A" have been?...
Day Seven: God's Omniscience and Satan's Rebellion
This is a two-part question. The first part is "Did God know Satan would rebel?" We know from Scripture that God is omniscient, which literally means "all-knowing." Job 37:16; Psalm 139:2–4, 147:5; Proverbs 5:21; Isaiah 46:9-10; and 1 John 3:19–20 leave no doubt that God's knowledge is infinite...

The Bible says that God created all things—including us—for Himself. He is glorified in His creation. "From him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen"...
