Why Does God Allow Evil

“And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.  Romans 8:28

How can a good God allow evil?  Its an age old question.  A best selling book some years ago attempted to answer the question.  Called Why Bad Things Happen to Good People, it proved in the end not able to answer the question.  In this passage from the bible, the question is answered in the affirmative.  All the things that happen, whether we judge them to be good or bad, are allowed to happen as part of a process.  This process works good for all who love God and are not rebelling against Him. What looks good or bad to us is seen only through our short sighted lens.  God sees through a telescope.  God sees around corners where we can’t see.  But I do believe this…if we could see what God sees, we would agree with what God does.
