In this final interview of the four part series with Pastor Douglass Riggs, we discuss the principle of how God will be ultimately vindicated through His allowance of evil. We discuss the origins of evil which began with Lucifer’s rebellion against God in heaven before man was created and prior to Genesis 1:2. The theological term for God being vindicated through His sovereign permission of evil is called “Theodicy”. Doug cites the story of Job as a biblical example of this important biblical theme. We also expose the heretical teaching that says because Job “feared” and had “unbelief” is the cause of his suffering.
We discuss North Korea, it’s occult connections and the atrocities that are occurring within its borders. Doug also explains how in the Millennial reign of Christ, referenced in Revelation 20 , will be the final historical consummation of the vindication of God defined as Theodicy.
This is excellent discussion in understanding why God allows evil.
