The Holy Standards of God:
God is pure holiness. All of his ideas, solutions, and laws come from a holy source. Here are a few verses suggesting His holiness:
God's laws and standards are very different than our own. But why? Well, think about it. The Lord is the pinnacle of holiness, therefore, His laws are more righteous than our own. Simply the fact that God is omniscient alone should be enough to acknowledge His superiority in regards to laws.
God's holiness trumps our own to such a degree that His laws might no make sense to us. Here are a few verse in regards to our inferior holiness:
Therefore, debating God's evilness is very difficult considering the fact the He knows beyond what we do.
Many people leave the Christian faith due to God's "treacherous" behavior or actions. In reality, the Bible states that, once you are a Christian, there is literally nothing that can separate you from the Lord. Therefore, those that leave the Christian faith because they disagree with God's words were never actually a Christian in the first place. They debate that somehow their own idea of holiness outclasses God's, which is purely illogical.
I will also go over a misconception regarding Isaiah 45:7:
(Credit goes to Scribble)
Though, I see how this would be confusing to the reader, it is not what it seems to be at first glance. In every other recent translation of the Bible, the word "evil" is replaced with "calamity" which refers to hardship. Hardship is not evil, and, if anything, actually is a punishment used by God. This "evil" is also considered punishment in Isaiah 47:10-11.
Here is another source that supports this idea:
Why did God create a world that He knew would be evil? Well, for instance, we have already established that God does not create evil, but punishment. The Bible states that God gaved us, unlike everything else of this earth, freedom to make choices.
So humans ultimately made the evil of this world. Though God knew of all the people going to Hell, it is actually fine. Through God's standards, which I have proved is far greater and stranger to our own, has it that all evil people will go to Hell.
Only through the forgiveness of Jesus Christ will one escape what we ultimately deserve.
I give some serious credit to Pastor John Piper for today's look on things. He did a very good job with his message, and I fully support listening to it.
I hope anyone reading this has a God blessed day.
