A Study on Evil (Replay)

Back in 2007, I read the book, "When Skeptics Ask" by Norman Geisler & Ron Brooks.  While reading the it, I was prompted to look more at evil and decided to share my findings.  This study lasted to what equated to 6 days worth of write-ups, but it was over the course of a month.  Today will be only the introduction.  Be blessed folks!

Good afternoon family.

I hope that everyone is doing well today.  Yet again, it is another scorching 102 degrees outside and my grass looks like hay but that's a different story :-) .  Today, there is not really a WFTD per say, but rather an introduction to a study in which I am about to embark.  I should have said that we all are about to go down this road on the study because I will be sharing all of what I receive.

Why a study on evil you may ask?  Why not?  The question of the existence of evil in the world is a big hindrance to some individuals believing that God is real.  You get questions like, "If God is real then why does He allow so much evil in the world?".  When it all boils down to it, that is a valid question and it deserves a serious look.  Look at Judas, who betrayed Jesus.  In the very beginning, Jesus knew who would betray him but yet he said nothing.  Let's look at John 6:68-71:

"(68) Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. (69) We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."   (70) Then Jesus replied, "Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!" (71) (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)"
Jesus had just finishing teaching that He was the bread of life and the many disciples had a hard time believing it.  All but twelve of them deserted Jesus, but still there was one of them possessed by evil.  So, it's not like evil just started.  It's been around for a long time so it is worth taking a look.

Until next time, when we begin our journey.  Be blessed.
