Lecture 4, The God of Prosperity and Evil:

God warns in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” We would expect a good and righteous God to say things like that. But things start to get a little confusing as we read on in the book of Isaiah. In chapter forty-five, verse seven, God seems to be saying something that doesn’t appear to fit into our understanding of His good and holy character. God plainly says, “I make peace, and create evil.” What do we do with a statement like this? How can a good God create evil? Looking at this difficult saying in this message, Dr. Sproul helps us understand “The God of Prosperity and Evil.”
