Does God Overcome Good With Evil? 5

Does God Over Come Good With Evil?

1. As we are required to love our enemies, may we not safely infer that God loves his enemies? If God loves his enemies, will he punish them more than will be for their good? Would endless punishment be for the good of any being?

2. If God hates his enemies, why should we love our enemies? Are we required to be better than our God? If God loves those only who love him, what better is he than the sinner? (Luke 6:32, 33.)

3. As we are forbidden to be overcome of evil, can we safely conclude that God will ever be overcome of evil? Would not the infliction of endless punishment prove that God had been overcome of evil?

4. If man does wrong in returning evil for evil, would not God do wrong were he to return evil for evil? Would not the infliction of endless punishment be proof positive that God was returning evil for evil?

5. Will not an infinitely good God do the best he possibly can for the whole human family? Would not the infliction of endless punishment be the very worst that God could do for any being in the universe?

6. As we are commanded to overcome evil with good, may we not safely infer that God will do the same? Would the infliction of never-ending punishment be overcoming evil with good?

7. Is God “without variableness or even the shadow of turning?” If God loves his enemies now, will he not always love them? If God will always love his enemies, will he not always seek their good?”

Rev. A. C. Thomas
