Good God and an Evil World | Habakkuk 1:1-2:5
December 13, 2020
Pastor Joshua Lim
The prophet Habakkuk confronts God with the problem of evil: How can we make sense of a good God in an evil world? Through this dialogue, we see that God remains sovereign even over an evil world, without being complicit in the evil He sovereignly oversees. The paradox of His goodness is that He intentionally allows evil to accomplish His good purposes. The greatest demonstration of that paradox is ultimately seen in the Cross! The call then for Christians is to live with steadfast faith in a good God even in the midst of an evil world.
