"To Eliane on the Problem of Evil"
I read your answers to M.A.P. concerning the problem that many do not
understand about the existence of evil in the world when God could end
it immediately. I agree with your answers and can see clear reasons that
God needs to replace the fallen angels with spirits that have shown
their loyalty in an earthly life, so that the mutiny that occurred does
not recur. Makes sense to me.
In your reply, at the end in a sort of summary, you quote my favorite
verse for daily living. It is Isaiah 26:3 "Thou shalt keep him in
perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in
thee..." When in pain and unrest, I have sometimes repeated that verse
many times and received comfort and rest.
God bless and keep you, Eliane.
