The Comfort Zone on "Why is there Evil?"

Saw these really good videos on YouTube. They really provided food for thought. The first one reminded me of one of my favourite ever quotes by R.C. Sproul: "Why do bad things happen to good people? That only happened once and He volunteered." And the second one really helped me to see yet again how we should reallly be seeing the problem of evil as being within us and not just simply external things or "big" evil events like murder and rape - in God's eyes, covetness and lying are evil too. I'd love your thoughts on what these two videos brought up!

Also, apologies for the lack of posting here lately, I don't have an excuse but if you have been going through a hard time lately and would like some spiritual encouragement on a slightly more regular basis, I try to update the Facebook page for this blog frequently, so you can go there (click here).

God bless!


  1. Good stuff, Violet! First off I must say, before this accident I never even knew of Paul Walker. From what I understand is that he was raised Mormon & then became a non-denominational Christian. Dont know the validity in any of this. Sad either way.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful videos with us!

    blessings upon blessings :)

  2. I did forget to answer that Ray Comfort is a favorite in our home :)

  3. Hi Patrizia,

    Thanks - it is good isn't it? It really helped me to suffering in light of God's goodness to us. I recently discovered Ray Comfort, and been finding their videos very challenging!

    Haha, yes, I hadn't heard of Paul Walker either! :P So you're not the only one! It is sad, but so reassuring to know that the Lord is in control!

    God bless you too!
