WHY DOES GOD ALLOW WARS?

“If there is an all-powerful God behind the scenes,” people often ask, “why would He allow such horrible wars? Why doesn’t He put a stop to all that if He’s in control?”

Although God hates war and its blood-thirsty perpetrators and is soon going to intervene and set things right when He “destroys them that destroy the Earth” (Rev.11:18), He hasn’t yet because in so doing, He would have had to put a stop to the main idea of His whole Great Design–Man’s Choice!

Man brings all this evil upon himself through his own sins, his own hand, literally dying by his own hand because of his refusal to receive the Lord, follow God or obey His Word! But if the people would just turn to the Lord and repent of their sins and ask for His forgiveness, He would lift the curse, and remove the whole thing, but they won’t! So He has to let the wars come and all the horrors that man brings upon himself, to show what a mess mankind is without the Lord!

Are you a person of peace?–Or a wager of war! “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God!” (Mat.5:9). Join the peacemakers and help bring peace to the hearts and minds and souls of men!

Mummy was sunning on the deck aside the deep end whilst I splashed in the shallow, turning circles in the cool water. A little boy came over with his mother, both terribly large people, though the boy was m’ age, and his mother struck up conversation with m’ mummy as I turned circles.

Mummy called me over and told me to go play with the new boy whilst she spoke with his mother, and so, we tottled off to the shallow end to check each other out. We splashed a bit and stood awkwardly and I piped, “Do you want to play?” to which he replied, “Well, I dunno…” And so I turned m’ back and ran m’ fingers along the smooth edge of the pool wall.
