Why are there bad people in the world?
The Bible tells us in Ps 14:3 “They have all gone astray; they have all together become evil. There is NONE GOOD, no, not one.” Evil people have been in the world since the fall of the human race. In Luke 17:1-2 Jesus said to the followers, “It would be impossible for abuses not to happen (in a fallen world): but sorrow will surely come to those who hurt others! It would better for them to have a large stone hung around their neck, and be drowned in the sea, than to hurt one of these little ones. Evil people do exist, but this verse clearly tells us that one day they will come to punishment. We are all evil by our fallen nature, but only with the proper training and God’s grace can we learn to be truly good. Goodness is given to us by God, who helps us defeat our sin nature through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
