Epilogue: “Does God Cause Evil?”

What if God was serious when he told humans to steward the earth?  What if all humans really were “but a mist” (James 4:14)?  What if every thing that ever happened (good and evil) was being used to bring the most people possible to the throne of God’s grace (Ephesians 1:11)?  What if the tortured and murdered child existed forever in heaven, justice was served to the murderer (either through Jesus’ cross or his eternal torment), and glory was given to God for both for the purpose of every person’s joy?  It will all make sense.
