THE MERCIFUL GROWER

Passage: Matthew 13:24-43

Speaker: Pastor Daniel Lepley

Category: Main Service

Our gospel lesson answers one of the most difficult questions of the faith. “Why does God allow evil?” The reason God allows evil in the world is because He is merciful to all. This doesn’t make sense when we suffer at the hands of evil. But our nation’s forefathers followed similar wisdom when they enshrined, “innocent until proven guilty,” as a tenet of our justice system. It is love, not wrath, that allows evil to endure so that evil doers may be forgiven for the sake of Jesus Christ.
