Confusion concerning God’s holiness, free will, sin/evil and Hell; a Christian response to follow:“But god creates evil. Sin exists not because of free will, but because of the definition God ascribed to things as “Sin.” Could god not have created free will without sin? If the answer is Yes, then why didn’t he? If the answer is no, then why can’t he? He is either evil, or not omnipotent. Both logical outcomes lead to a God not worthy of worship. God’s willingness to condemn me to hell for eternity is a showing of his power, not his worthiness.”
God is Holy, He does not create evil but only the possibility for same so that free will can reign supreme which is essential for love and relationship with our Creator to manifest with purity and authenticity. Note that the KJV translators in Isaiah 45:7 incorrectly translated the Hebrew “ra” as “evil” but the correct translation in context is “calamity.” See: https://biblehub.com/text/isaiah/45-7.htm
There is no “free will” void volition; one must possess the ability to choose and in order for that “choice” to exist, the antithesis of love and good and righteousness and obedience must also exist.
God is omnipotent and omniscient and though His Plan for Time and Eternity is immutable, the process by which that Plan comes to fruition is fluid; in other words, God allows you and me to make our own individual choices concerning our destiny in Time and Eternity and He works through and around those choices to bring His perfect will and Plan for Time and Eternity to completion.
God the Father has provided you a Way to find forgiveness for your sin and He has provided a pardon from death in sin and death in Hell if you will “choose” to repent of your sin, believe in your heart, confess with your mouth, that Jesus Christ is God who died to pay your sin-debt and that Jesus was resurrected from the dead for your justification (Romans 10:9-10). God does NOT will or choose to send anyone to Hell (1 Timothy 2:4), Hell was not created for mankind but for Satan and the fallen angels (Matthew 25:41); man will enter Hell by first climbing directly over the Cross of Jesus Christ.
The power of Hell is not God’s will for your life but God is Holy and He will NOT permit your unrepentant, destructive sin to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of your body in Time (Revelation 21:27); therefore, you will deal with your sin within the Age of Grace through faith in Jesus Christ – OR – you will deal with your sin at the Judgment of the Condemned and lose both body and soul in Hell. Man will enter Hell by “choice.” The choice to live with God forever or lose both body and soul in Hell is yours to make (John 3:16; Revelation 20:11-15; Matthew 10:28). Please choose wisely, please choose life?
