God, Justice and Evil

Great conversation between Habakkuk and God about evil in the world, and what God is doing about it.

So many people these days don’t understand why the Christian God, apparently loving and all powerful would allow for evil to be in this world. So many question what He is doing about it. Habakkuk 1 and onwards is a great conversation between hab and God. Hab asks why, why,why and God answers, tells him judgement IS coming( in Gods timing). This chapter is one of the many locations that helps us understand how God works and what He is doing about evil in this world.

It also demonstrates mans impatience,and then once justice does come, mans thought that from his perspective the punishment wasn’t right, or adequate or whatever. God is obviously a lot smarter and wise than us and we need to start seeing things in that light… Ie,maybe God has a plan and knows what He is doing??!!

(NET) Habakkuk 1:3 Why do you force me to witness injustice? Why do you put up with wrongdoing? Destruction and violence confront me; conflict is present and one must endure strife.
