Is it ever okay for us to do something evil if the end result will be good? Sometimes people will do bad things just to get attention. We have been seeing this happen more and more in the past several years. There are those who think the only way to get a point across is to do something bad. But the Bible says this should not be. Romans 6:1 says; “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?” Verse 2 says; “Certainly not!” Yet evil is in the world and it does happen, so where does it come from? Not from God. Jeremiah 29:11 says; “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace not of evil…” We need to remember that Satan is the author of evil, not God. But sometimes God will allow evil to happen in order for His purpose to come about. Joseph said in Genesis 50:20, “You intended it to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” This doesn’t mean that when evil does happen we should say that it is a good thing. Isaiah tells us,” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” We may not always know why bad things happen, but for us to have comfort and rest in this world we need to remember that God is in control and that Romans 8:28 says, “…that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God…” So as Christians, we need to be the light of the world that God wants us to be. And remember what Romans 12:21 says, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
