The Bible told me so

Why do so few Christians know about Isaiah 45:7? God states that he created evil? Why did he do that? Doesn't seem fair.

You must remember that men wrote the Bible and it shouldn't be taken that seriously. If you do it can drive nuts

I believe that God created evil in order to see how many of His children would follow Him rather than the evil ways. It's doesn't seem fair.God does not want to make it easy for us to decide which way to go.That is why he also made Freedom of Choice and our Power of Will.

You might not feel at times that God is there, but God will always be there for us. There are trials that test our faith. This is the most important thing, can we still trust God through those bad or worst times? Or do we just trust and have faith on Him if we are experiencing all the blessings? We should not expect rewards here on earth, because the inheritance that God will give is in heaven. Always remember that God is fair and everything happens for a reason.

I use to believe in fairness in justice, but now I hate that word. Justice. what a joke. Evil was created simply because he was bored, and all peace would be a little too pleasant. So because of that evil, people deal with events like the Japan Tsunami. in fact the only way any of this makes sense is if you believe in no God or Multiple Gods. Multiple would probably argue and during an argment,miss seeing the Tsunmi about to happen, but even that sounds silly

ok and why does he allow bad stuff to happen more often to the good people, yet the bad get rewardede so much easier? This has always puzzled me.I know somebody who doesn't have a mean bone in her body, yet bad stuff always happens to her. She had a hard life since birth and its getting worse. She is a devout follower of Christ even tho i sometimes tell her how silly i think it all is, because she isn't rewarded.

The word "evil" has two meanings. One is moral evil or sin - it will drive you nuts if you assume that that is the meaning intended by the Holy Spirit in Isaiah 45:7. The other is providential evil or harm - this is what God creates for man as justice or chastening as a result of man's embrace of moral evil. Being in hell will always be evil for its inhabitants, but their being there will be good in the sight of God and His redeemed and glorified saints - how many tears did Abraham and Lazarus shed for the poor rich man? Could there be a similar paradigm in the meanings of the word "good"? Or is "Who will show us a way to please God?" what the many mean by what they ask in Psalm 4:6? ... Pull the other one!
