If God exist why are there so much evil in the world?

This is the question that more and more people are asking everyday. With all the violence that we see happening, different shootings that’s been taking place, young innocent kids dying, people getting raped or sexually abused mercilessly and other heinous things that takes place.

God does exist and he’s seeing all the evil going on but he gave mankind a choice to do good or evil.

Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

In this world there is good and evil and we make a choice to do either one of them. No one forces us to do either one, not even God himself.

He tells us what we should choose and the consequence for what we choose.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

God is very patient with all of us, including the ones that are committing the most heinous crimes, as he’s giving us all a chance to get it right before he sends his son back to take vengeance on those that are and have committed evil without repenting.

Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

So the point to all of this is for us to live according to the teachings of Jesus Christ as God will be taking vengeance on all the evil doers in his own time.
