Is God Fair?
Why? “Why did this person do this?”
“Why did this horrible tragedy take place?”
“Why didn’t anyone do anything prevent this?"
All of these questions ultimately lead to the issue: “Why does God permit such evil to exist in the world?”
This question has plagued prophets, kings, philosophers, teachers, preachers and pundits alike. More than 2,600 years ago the prophet Habakkuk leveled this very complaint against God. He cried out, “Why do you idly look at traitors and are silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he?” (Habakkuk 1:13). Centuries before Habakkuk, a man named Job cried out to God asking a similar question: “Why do the wicked live, reach old age, and grow mighty in power? Their offspring are established in their presence, and their descendants before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, and no rod of God is upon them” (Job 21:7-9).
“Those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.”
1 Peter 4:19
