Most People Blame God For Injustice But….

Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind: Get ready to answer me like a man; when I question you, you will inform me. Would you really challenge my justice? Would you declare me guilty to justify yourself?” Job 40:6-8 CSB


So many people blame God for the evil in the world, resulting in their further disobedience against God because they refuse to humble themselves before Him as God. They blame God for all the evil in the world, and they see themselves not as the problem but as the judge of God Who fails to intervene, making themselves better than God. Therefore, it is unnecessary in their minds to humble themselves before God. Yet nearly all the evil in the world is conducted by people. It is man against man who violates man. God does not interfere and block every evil action by every person, for doing so would remove our free will, for none of us are holy, and all of us act selfishly, constantly, and consistently. Each of us is guilty before God, Who is holy, perfect, and righteous, which we, too, must be for living with Him. We define good by our lack of evil, not by doing what God says. When we say we are good people, we prove ourselves by listing the bad things we don’t do. This is not the definition of good. The good God will reward is obedience to His commands, the building of His kingdom upon earth as it is in heaven. How good are we at accomplishing His will on earth, glorifying Him before all people all of our days in obedience to all His ways? We will all stand before the judgment seat of God, Jesus the Savior. He perfectly obeyed the will of God. He will not have an epiphany by our plea that we were good because God was unjust, not running the world as we imagined He should. When we see Him, we will realize then the foolishness of our thinking, resulting in the disobedience of our living, creating the eternal consequence of banishment from God and His people forever in pain and suffering. Our only escape is to humble ourselves today, repent of this arrogance, pursue God, and do His will.
