Looking at the world and seeing all this sickness and suffering, one has to question where all this evil comes from. From a Christian’s point of view, God created the world and everything in it. So, did God create evil as well?
17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
19 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”
God cursed the the earth because of Adam’s work…
But God also created a way for us to be saved. He gave His only Son to redeem us from our sins.
