Many people blame God for the evil and suffering that is in the world. The truth is–it is men who commit evil acts upon others and the suffering that touches so many lives is caused by people, not God.
Isaiah 59:15-16 is one of those verses from the Old Testament that really gives us tremendous insight into the mind and heart of God. Looking from heaven at the plight of man, God sees what great suffering is taking place on the earth because of sin. From Adam onward, all men are born sinners with a tendency towards evil continually. The world which exists today has become a place of unimaginable evil, suffering, and death.
