Q: Why didnt God stop sin? God knows the future so why didnt He stop it from happening
A: Dear Nia,
My answer to your question is going to seem a little weird but please read on. God didn't wipe out sin because He loved us too much to do that. Wow, you say, that doesn't make much sense, so let me compare it to your life. Just suppose now that when you were born your parents locked you in your bedroom and never let you out. Year after year went by and when your were old enough you asked them why they didn't let you go outside to play. What if their answer was, "Oh Nia, there are so many things out in the world that can hurt you, so because we love you so much and we want to protect you, we're going to protect you as best we can by taking away your freedom." Would you feel very loved by their answer? Of couse not. The best way they could show you their love was to do everything they could to protect you, but still give you the freedom to do those good things that would make you happy. Because God loved Adam and Eve so much, He gave them the freedom to choose what they would like to do after He told them what would be best for them. Sadly they chose the wrong thing and obeyed Satan instead of God. That's why there is sin in our world.

Thanks for your question
Pastor Don
