In this second of the series, Dr. Don G. Pickney presents evidence clarifying the true meaning from the Hebrew and Greek concerning the word, "evil," as it pertains to God's actions in judgment and doling out punishment in the Old Testament, and several cases in the New Testament, specifically,
1) when Ananias and Sapphira fell dead immediately after lying to Peter regarding the amount they sold property for in a fund raising effort to gain greater support for the Church and its beginning;
2) when a man in the church at Corinth was having an open affair with his step-mother was "turned over to Satan" by Apostle Paul, "for the destruction of his flesh;" and finally,
3) two men, Hymenaeus and Alexander, who were traveling from church to church teaching that the rapture of the Church had already taken place and were "overthrowing the faith of some," were "turned over to Satan for the destruction of their flesh," that they might "learn not to blaspheme."
Pastor Don reveals from the Hebrew and Greek that "evil" is within its definition, neither "morally right or wrong. It simply mean, "harmful, injurious, hurtful, creating bad circumstances," etc. He goes on to explain, according to scripture, "evil" in the hands of God for judgment, etc. is morally good, but in the hands of humanity it is morally wrong. God said that we should not “render evil for evil, but contrariwise, blessing; as He reminds us, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
Therefore, when God created "evil" as a part of His divine ability to deal out injurious circumstances upon the wicked, as stated through the Prophet Isaiah, He created it for purposes of justice and judgment. It also enables Him to be an enemy to our enemies, and an adversary to our adversaries; enabling Him to bless those who bless us, and curse those who curse us; so that if they come "against us one way,” He see to it that they would “flee seven ways," etc.
