Nature itself proves that there is a God.
The beauty and goodness in the world proves that God exists. And since we are created in His image, these are His attributes that we have inherited by design.
The bad things in this world proves that evil exists. Evil is not from God but from the adversary, the devil. This we inherited not from God but from Adam’s fall and failure to obey God.
God created man In innocence without any knowledge of evil. God gave man dominion over all the earth and over everything that creepeth on the earth with one condition: not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil for in that day that he did, he would surely die. This was not physical death but spiritual death and death to innocence for man could no longer claim to be innocent. Man did not obey. He ate from the forbidden tree. His eyes were opened and he now knew evil. He knew instantly that he was naked and covered himself and when God called him he was ashamed to come out for he knew that he was naked.
With this he unwittingly turned over the dominion that was rightfully his, to the enemy being Satan. This gave Satan freehand to rule the earth and the hearts if men as he wished and set them against God. It took the sacrifice of God’s only begotten Son Jesus to redeem it back to man by His blood.
Once this was accomplished Satan was a defeated foe with no more authority to exercise his de facto dominion. But like all criminals, they operate without authority but on mere brute power and ability. Though he was stripped of his authority, he was not stripped of his power or his ability. Rather Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to fill all believers with His power, authority and ability to overcome the enemy by His word and in Jesus name and authority. So Jesus secured dominion back for man and to man and made man responsible once again to rule the earth.
So when bad things happen it comes from the enemy but it is man’s responsibility to rectify and overcome it to let God’s will be done on earth as it is done in heaven. If it would not happen in heaven, then it should not happen here on earth.
There is no vacuum.
“Well, I’m just neutral.”
Even nature proves there is no vacuum. Even a black hole will suck in all the matter around it.
When you die, who will claim you? When you die, whoever owns you will claim you. If you do not belong to God, you will belong to the devil by default.
Seek Jesus now while you still have time. Tomorrow is promised to noone.
