Evil Choice

Evil Chaos

Do you ever wonder about the evil  in this world?

Augustine was right when he mused that evil is not a “thing” God created, but the act of choosing less than what is from God.  Neither did Satan create evil, either – nor even sin.  Satan only corrupts what God creates, and makes it less than it ought to be.  (Satan creates nothing original, only chaos.)

In contrast, “Everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.  (1 Timothy 4.4-5)

And God’s promise is that he is restoring what has gone bad to it’s original beauty:  “Behold, I am making all things new.”  (Revelation 21.5)
