Why So Much Evil?

Galatians 1:10 NKJV
For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

Genesis 6:1-8 NKJV
Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, [2] that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. [3] And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” [4] There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. [5] Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. [6] And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. [7] So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” [8] But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Matthew 24:37-39 NKJV
But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. [38] For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, [39] and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

2 Peter 3:1-7 NKJV
Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), [2] that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, [3] knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, [4] and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” [5] For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, [6] by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

The first time God destroyed  the wickedness and evil of man by flooding the earth with water. Sparing only eight people. Noah and his family. The next time, God will purify, cleanse, and destroy evil and wicked ungodly men from the earth with fire.

[7] But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Therefore, if you are lost and unsaved, you must repent of your sins. Because if you die lost in your sins, you will be cast into the lake of fire.

However, you do not have to die in your sins. God wishes that none will perish.

2 Peter 3:9 NKJV
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Matthew 7:11 NKJV
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Ask and you shall recieve.

Revelation 3:20 NKJV
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Jeremiah 10:23 NKJV
O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself; It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.

The lost and unsaved are evil and wicked by nature.

What sort of excuse for a human being would pack large nails around an IED for the purpose of deliberately killing and maiming innocent children, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, leaving their bodies terribly disfigured and horribly burned? What sort of a human being would take a knife and cut off a person’s head while their hands are tied behind their back?
What sort of person would put people bound in a cage and set them on fire while they are alive? What kind of person would put over 20 people bound in a cage and drop them over the side of a boat and raise them to the surface 20 minutes later with all of them dead by drowning ? What kind of person will throw men alive and bound into a den of hungry lions and watch and cheer as they are being ripped to shreds by the hungry beast? What kind of person would hang men bound and alive from a playground swing set, and build a fire underneath them and continue to throw wood on the fire until it reaches the man and engulfs him in flames and burns him alive ?

The answer I’m about to give may anger you, but I believe that the cause is what The Bible commonly calls the human nature or the natural sinful man. It’s called sin. Sin is the most deadly disease known to mankind. Everyone is born a sinner. However, Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. You must be born again.

It’s that same sinful human nature that fights for the right to kill children in the womb, and doesn’t see that as being evil. What if you had been terminated in your mothers womb ? What about that ?

Evil is the wickedness of the human heart, what the Bible calls the natural man. Without Jesus Christ, those who are lost, not born again by the Spirit of God, are capable of, and are engaged in evil and wicked acts. We see and hear about the evil and wickedness of mankind on a daily basis.

It’s the same human nature that rapes women, shoots schoolchildren, beats and robs the elderly, shoots people watching a movie in a theater. It is the same evil spirit of wickedness that kicks in the doors at night of peoples homes to rob and to kill the innocent.

It’s the same evil spirit of wickedness, that convinces a suicide bomber to fasten a belt laden and packed with high explosives, to take his own life and as many other innocent bystanders as possible.

It’s the same evil spirit that caused WWII and all the other wars combined.

That same sinful human nature that motivated atheistic communism’s killing of 110,000,000 people.

Human nature is so evil, it demands that Hell should exist for such terrorists, child rapists, and those who murder. The evil and wicked lost are so blinded by their own self-righteousness, they would never deem themselves worthy of going to hell. Evil is severely wicked when it calls itself good.

Hell exist for those who die in this lost state of evil and wickedness. Those who have not been born again. You must be born again or you cannot see or enter the kingdom of God.

God will not allow His Holy Heaven to be ruined and polluted with sin, evil and wickedness.

But it gets worse for humanity. God sees each of us from a viewpoint of Holiness, Moral Perfection, Justice, and Righteousness. He says the very best of us are desperately wicked. Jesus even said of His own disciples, that they were “evil”.

So what is the solution to the evil and wicked heart of lost mankind ? How do we get out from under the Wrath of Almighty God ?

Here is the answer for sinful, evil, lost and wicked mankind.

Colossians 3:5-17 NKJV
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. [6] Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, [7] in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. [8] But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. [9] Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, [10] and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, [11] where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. [12] Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; [13] bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. [14] But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. [15] And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. [16] Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. [17] And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

God provided the remedy for evil and wickedness of the human heart, through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by Him.

You must be born again.

John 3:16-21 NKJV
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. [17] For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. [18] “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [19] And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [20] For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. [21] But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Revelation 20:15 NKJV
And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

John 3:3 NKJV
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Do you see your need for a Saviour, His Name is Jesus Christ ? Salvation is  available through Him alone.

Where will you spend eternity when you die? In Heaven, or hell ?
