Is God Good or Evil?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I have heard this question wrestled with lately. Is God good or evil? Does He perhaps have a mix of good and evil? Does He have a side of Him that is sadistic, liking to see people suffer?

Is God Good or Evil?

This question comes up more often today because of the pervasive humanistic thought that has eroded our society. If you come from a humanistic point of view, then you get these questions of God being good or evil. Whether He intends good and bad for us for His pleasure.

If we are going to think of this rightly though, we must come to a couple of foundational truths. They are that God is eternal, God is perfect and good, and God made everything that is in existence, including people.
