THEODICY: GOD’S ROLE IN SIN – Part 1

As every Christian can affirm, Bible study groups can be frustrating.

THEODICY: GOD’S ROLE IN SIN – Part 2

From the outset, in order to understand a Reformed soteriology and therefore be faithful to Scripture, it is crucial to underscore a fundamental doctrine pertaining to the origin of sin.

THEODICY: GOD’S ROLE IN SIN – Part 3

The example of Israel’s unbelief found in Romans 9 adds further insight into the question of how God ordained evil to accomplish His purposes and did so without impugning His character.

THEODICY: GOD’S ROLE IN SIN – Part 4

We come now to the conclusion of this series that provides a biblical answer to the question posed by the curious, and perhaps cynical, Sunday school class member (Part 1) who asked: “If God is in charge of everything, and if He hates sin, why would He allow Adam and Eve to sin?” We have concluded throughout this study that He ordained to allow evil to enter His perfect universe through the voluntary choices of moral creatures in order to dramatically display His glory through His holiness, wrath, mercy, grace, love and power.

THE DAMNING TYRANT OF SIN

If you ask the average person, “What is sin?” you will typically hear answers like, “Sin is doing something God doesn’t like,” or “Sin is breaking one of the Ten Commandments,” or “Sin is just another word for mistakes,” or “Sin is doing unto others things you wish they would never do unto you.
