Mr H Posted January 25, 2022 Share Posted January 25, 2022 (edited) I wanted to know what is your best explanation as to why God allows evil in this world? I have heard many answers over the years, some great and some not so great. This morning after experiencing some suffering myself I decided to ask the question.... So I will share my answer below....and it's just an answer, not THE answer.... So all there is, is God. Anything we see or experience is a modulation of God. From this absolutist point of view, there is nobody there to do anything to anything or to anyone, because there are no selves, just god. No one is really doing anything to anyone but to themselves....... The above is true. But is not very helpful. Because we experience existence as so called selves, so I will dive deeper.... A humantistic viewpoint - we have been given an individual like experience by God - we could say in this sense, God gave birth to us. This means we are God, or at least, God like - modulated into a limited human form - limited in terms of that we feel like we have a body and our own thoughts etc....... God is Sovereign. Because we are an "extension" of God, we are also Sovereign. Because we experience as individuals we could claim to be sovereign individuals. Now we zoom to the creation type stories of how God gave the Earth to Humans to look after and essentially do as thy will. This is your kingdom... In God there is no duality. Only IS..... But for humans to exist into the "future" there needs to be duality, needs to be male and female. So this is the inception point of the possibility of duality. Before this it didn't exist, no good nor evil only is...... So good and evil is an extension of this world of duality that we need to function on this planet as humans. It is a result and natural process into the exploration of being a human. Now why does "God" not intervene. Well 2 things. 1. God gave you the responsibility as a sovereign individual to do as you please on this planet. Therefore, it would be a contradiction to then intervene because you wouldn't then be sovereign. 2. More truthfully, you are God. In both of the above, the proper intervention for dealing with Evil if this is deemed not to be something we wish not to experience would be for you as either a sovereign individual or God, to take the appropriate action. However, we must also understand the duality of things. We cannot have good without having evil. And it is pointless trying to communicate with the God presence where duality doesn't exist to intervene. It is at this level of consciousness/god that we have to intervene if we don't like something. My guess is that we are on the return journey to God, where duality doesn't exist and we just learn to live o this planet in peace - neither in good nor bad. Be interesting to see what explanations you have on the topic. With blessing. MR H Edited January 25, 2022 by Mr H Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
