Be Prepared: Why Doesn't God Stop Evil?

Questions about faith in God, why does God allow suffering? Why doesn't God stop evil
Dear Christians, let's be prepared to answer this difficult question:

Why doesn't God stop the terrible evil in our world?

First, let's put evil in context: Death, decay, sickness, natural disasters, and sinful men are all results of the Fall. Adam's sin damaged God's perfect world (Genesis 3). 

Next, let's put evil in perspective: Life involves suffering, but life is short compared to eternity (2 Corinthians 4:8-18).

Finally, let's ask ourselves the same question: What are we doing to stop evil?

If we're honestly concerned about evil, we'll deal with evil in ourselves by trusting Christ and letting Him transform us (Romans 12:1-2). This won't answer all our questions about evil, but it will give us comfort in our suffering so we can help others (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).

And it will give us a relationship with the God who hates evil so much that He suffered and died on a Cross to free us from sin and give us an eternity of joy (John 3:16; Revelation 21:1-8).
