If God is really powerful and omnipresent, why evil is on the rise?
I was just wondering that if God is so powerful and omnipresent, why doesn't he prevent evil before it happening. Everyday news on TV and other media force me to think like that. A lot of innocent lives (including children) are being tortured and eliminated by terrorists who has no right to do that. They even don’t know who they are and where do they come from.
I think there may be a reason for that and God needs our help to wipe out evil from this world. And this way only we can make him more powerful and bring back world peace. I have heard that most of the terrorists have a mentality that “they are OK and others are not OK”. If a person believes in this he is destructive. If somebody is having a mentality “I am OK and others are also OK”, he is the ideal human being, striving for world peace. But if somebody believes “I am not OK and others are OK”, he is suffering from depression and diffidence.
I think we cannot blame God for the current situation. All these troubles are our own creations and we need to correct it.
