Evil is a thing of the heart -Romans 14:20,22,23 ".....All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.....Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith, for whatsoever is not of faith.(whatever you don't have complete confidence in, hold off doing till you acquire more information on the subject; don't just freeze up, do nothing and shy away; but be eager and open minded enough to seek for more information, until you can make a solid decision; if you are having difficulty making a decision, maybe it should't be made just yet).is sin."-Sin means to be 'missing the mark' as the original has it.

Evil involves things troublesome, injurious, pernicious, destructive, baneful and of bad nature.(hate, greed, etc.), that which takes you down a step further and hurts you and/or others and can often accompany the arrogance some develop from a self imposed lifestyle of ease.
    People need the leisure time necessary for them to carve their own pathways of living. Governments, along with 'greedco's', by their burdensome tax schemes deprive populaces of this.
    Many must work more than 24-30 hours weekly just to make ends meet, so they can continue to work another day. This is cruelty.
    More time working leads to less time thinking, and perhaps that's what many rulers in governments want. 
    This is one factor-hindering development of the individual toward greater contributions in society. 
    In past ages when people had more leisure time we saw meticulous work done on masterpieces in art. We saw great creativity, as in the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.('revolution' because it altered society outstandingly and swiftly). People had time to think, to create, to contribute, as their families could easily be looked after without the woman 'having to have a career' just to help make ends meet. A man's mere 16-20 weeks of work a year would easily provide for a family of six. Today is one of the worst ages in all history for lack of important leisure time. Fewer and fewer people have the freedom necessary for thinking and creating.
    Satan is behind all evil. It's his job! And God allows this. Evil is there so that we have something to struggle against, something to overcome, developing a character set in the process, all with a high reward in mind – in God's mind, for you!
    And so it is very hard, very difficult at times, but not forever! Life ain't easy baby, but it's possible!
    Be glad He is a God of love -Romans 11:22. Nothing is more powerful than God -Romans 11:34-36; Daniel 9:14; Psalms 62:11
    It's His universe. He is in charge of everything -Revelation 1:18; Job 12:10,14,15,23; Ecclesiastes 9:1. He's in charge of His word reaching the world.(Amos 8:11,12).and of the calamities.(Luke 21:7-36).which have occurred and may yet occur on Earth.(verse 22), the calamities which cause our trials and sufferings and as you'll soon see, even the evil.
    He even had Jesus crucified! -Romans 8:32 "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all.(Isaiah 53rd chapter), how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" If God so lovingly gave His only son so we could eventually inherit all God has, hey! What kind of love do you think this is?
    Christ was in on it all too – all part of the plan -Ephesians 3:9; Acts 15:18. He IS God – Almighty! That's why He said...

-God brings evil.(calamities and various strokes of affliction).into one's life -Exodus 4:11; 2Samuel 12:11; Isaiah 45:7; 2Samuel 16:12; Proverbs 20:24; Jeremiah 32:38-42.
    And God turns it all into good, eventually -1Corinthians 10:13; Romans 8:28.
    God doesn't dwell with evil, but He controls all evilby using he who was created for that purpose.
    That's why were told not to resist evil -Matthew 5:39. But, why not resist evil? -Proverbs 20:22; 24:29; Romans 12:17-19; 2Thessalonians 1:6. All things are for learning to trust God implicitly. But are we to stand up as a country against aggressors?
    Perhaps you caused the evil you're now in? You may be like Derek was, needing God's help in some particular area currently causing trouble.
    Hardships are here for us to deal lovingly and wisely with.(Matthew 5:44,45); learning from life's experiences and observations. Learning what? That it's all of God, for our character development; to develop love like He has -1John 4:8,16.
    God engineers circumstances today as He has always done -Acts 7:6; Genesis 15;13,14; 2Samuel 16:11.

-God is responsible for one's repentance.(changing of heart -2Timothy 2:25; Ecclesiastes 7:13).and the faith we need to be saved -Philippians 1:29; Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 2:20.

-God sends rain, bountiful harvests and joy -Deuteronomy 11:13-28; Job 5:10; Jeremiah 5:24; Joel 2:23-25

-God works behind the scenes determining outcomes of things -Acts 17:26; 2Chronicles 18:19-34; Exodus 4:11. In this He uses both good and evil angels, as all are under His direction. What is there that can resist His will? When God wants something done, it gets done!

-God, works with those who don't know Him, has even caused you be in the particular family you're in, even with the particular name of your family, the location you are in, and, God says there is none like Him -Isaiah 45:4,5,6; 46:9. In this, God manipulated Pharaoh to show something.

-Nobody finds God. He 'finds' you. When He wants to, He'll reveal Himself to you. Paul's awakening came in such a dramatic manner. Without God's grace one could never find salvation. And grace is a gift from God -Titus 2:11; 3:7

-God predetermines one's spiritual awakening to Him and other things, even details -Isaiah 45:4,5; Romans 9:11-24; Luke 8:12; 1Peter 1:20; Acts 2:23; Isaiah 53:6,10; 1Samuel 17:46; 1Samuel 18:10,11; Jude 1:4; Acts 4:26,28; 3:18; Revelation 17:17; John 6:70; Luke 22:53; Ephesians 4:11. God keeps His truth for those whose minds He has presently opened to receive it -Matthew 13:13-15; John 12:37-40. He is definitively in charge of all! 

-God gives us the will to follow certain paths important in becoming the strong individuals.(God does not want clones).He would have us be -Philippians 2:13. In this He delivers us from the evil world only to the extent that He determines -Galatians 1:4. Why?

-God has caused us to be physically and spiritually born at this particular time in all eternity for His reasons -John 1:12,13; Romans 11:33; Isaiah 44:24

-God wants nothing in His presence that's unlike Him -Philippians 2:5,6; 2Peter 2:4-9. That's why He predestinated Christ to appear. It's all part of His overall plan. We're made in the image of God. We're the same, preferring to be around those who think much like us.....continues
