Why Doesn't God Destroy Evil?

Have you ever wondered or been asked why God doesn't destroy evil? Here are some thoughts to ponder that a friend sent me:

"Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine." 1 Chronicles 29:11

Have you ever wondered why God doesn't obliterate the devil and eradicate all sin?
If God destroyed evil, God would destroy every opportunity of choice. And if God were to destroy every opportunity for choice, then God would destroy every opportunity for love. Therefore, God would destroy the highest good. For God to destroy evil would be evil. God doesn't destroy evil; instead God defeats evil.
How? Through Calvary and the resurrection. God turns every hurt into a hallelujah. Every defeat into victory! What do you think? Let me know. Leave a comment!


  1. Mr. Fisher,

    I really like how you put it about God not destroying evil, but defeating it. That is such a good point...I can't wait to share that with others! Thank God we have the victory through Christ Jesus!

    By the way, I like your new photo on the side. Who is that with you? One of your sons?

    God bless you richly,

  2. I wrote a blog similar to this some time ago, although it was more focussed on that freedom of choice He gives us ...

    I like the way you put it :D

  3. Never thought of it that way before. Very interesting!
