Sin is the root cause of all evil. Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil. It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin….
In some ways it may seem that violence is worse today than in the past. Weapons are more destructive than ever before. There are more guns and knives and more ways of hurting people than ever before. As these weapons get more powerful, so does the power to hurt others.
But in reality, violence and evil come out of evil hearts that are separated from God. As long as people rebel against God, we will have violence and evil in the world.
Key Verse: Romans 12:21
