“The author of both good and evil” …… Yes, I’ve read that verse before. He created all that is; the creation sinned and messed up our world …. He didn’t. The enemy is really speaking through you Carl. Guess what, the enemy speaks through us as Christians at times also…… especially when we are confused, discouraged, etc., and especially when we are not walking closely enough w/God. I myself have been mad at God at times in my life. Yet, I remain with God and realize that God Himself went through much suffering while here……. more so than most of us will ever know. We as Christians are called upon to suffer for Christ at times, especially in other parts of the world where it’s ongoing and has been for many years. According to the Bible it’s to become much worse suffering wise worldwide (here too). If I live long enough…… I will likely go through much suffering for Christ myself…..along w/other Christians. I pray for strength from God, and the same for my brothers and sisters in Christ. …..The unsaved in the last days will be suffering directly from the judgments sent from God, then will suffer eternally in hell. Please accept Him while there’s time Carl. Take care.
