Evil has two forms, sin and suffering. Good has only one - God. But critics challenge by pointing out what seems to be the obvious contradiction. Why does a good God allow both sin and suffering? I’m always wondering is that really the right question? How about this… Is a God who allows sin and suffering really a contradiction, or is the allowance of sin and suffering just the unknown-unwanted reality of a sovereign God’s world? A sovereignty that humanity either chooses to deny or resent. Over many years I have learned that most good people don’t really want to sin, and none of the people who sin want to suffer for it. But that doesn't make it reality and certainly doesn't make it right. Truth is that we all end up doing some things we don’t want to do - and if those things we do are bad, the reality is that someone will suffer for it.
