The permission
of evil is designed to work out a greater good –
a lasting and valuable lesson.

"For thou art
not a God that
hath pleasure in wickedness..."
Psalms 5:4

 

Though opposed
to evil,
God does
permit it.

 

 

 

"Good" and "Evil" are
the results of
right and wrong principles
in action.

God did not
make man
a puppet.

 

Why didn’t God limit man’s experience?

God
permitted man
to experience
the exceeding sinfulness

of sin.

Cain and Abel

Only
by comparing
results
can man
properly
appreciate
good and evil.

 

 

Liberty
of choice
is a part

of man’s
original endowment.

God desires intelligent
and willing
obedience, rather than
ignorant, mechanical service.

Four avenues
of knowledge:

1.  Intuition

2.  Observation

3.  Experience

4.  Information

 

 

 

 

 

Man learns
by practical experience.

 

Adam and Eve yielded to the temptation which God wisely permitted.

Eve.jpg (4052 bytes)


Although deceived,
Eve was a transgressor.

Adam wilfully shared Eve's act of disobedience.

Adam1F.jpg (3944 bytes)

Man, through impairment of his moral nature,
desires sin.

GoldenCalf.jpg (5683 bytes)

God has
permitted sin,
but is not
the author of it.

Evil is
not always

sin.

Man’s noblest quality is liberty of choice.
If this were taken away, man would be inferior

to insects.

Insect.jpg (8780 bytes)

When man
was permitted
to choose
for himself,
he fell from divine fellowship.

Adam2A.jpg (20677 bytes)

God did not force man
to sin, but in His loving wisdom provided
a means
for his recovery.

"For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ

our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Life is a favor,
a gift of God.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of Lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow
of turning."
James 1:17

The doctrine of Eternal torture
is NOT:

1. Scriptural
2. Consistent with God’s character
3. Part of
God’s plan

As all in Adam shared his condemnation...

All in Christ
will share in restitution blessings.

 

Christ purchased Adam’s race.

"All that are in their graves...
shall come forth."

"If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

"For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."
I Corinthians 15:19-22

Second Chance

vs.

First Individual Opportunity

 

 

 

Jesus36AngelsA.jpg (23061 bytes)
"Good tidings
of great joy
which shall be
unto all people."

Why
so much misery upon so many?

Grief3.jpg (7673 bytes)

 

If given an individual chance,
how many would have been found worthy

of life?

wpe666.jpg (2756 bytes)

The wisdom of God confines sin to certain limits.

Other objections to giving an individual chance now:

1. Would require a redeemer for each one condemned

2. Would not permit selection of "the body"

The ransom
is a solution to many perplexities.

Blessings will result through the permission of evil.

All will be able to see clearly God’s
--Wisdom--
--Justice--
--Love--
--Power--

as shown in the ransom.

The Law
of God
is Love.
