Theodicy or Why does God allow evil?

Why does God allow evil?

This is rather a silly question.

God DOES NOT allow evil! It is us who are responsible for all the suffering in the world! It is us who are not living according to the Torah and it is us who are allowing all the evil to thrive!

God gave us free will and therefore we have a choice to be good or evil. Some people choose to do evil and this is why we have evil in the world. This is the price we pay for having free will. Would you rather have no evil but no free will? Would you really be happy in a Borg-like society? 

Since our society is very far from Torah society, the amount of evil is astounding. However, Torah promises that evil will end once all people of the earth will agree to live according to the Torah of One God. I am not saying that evil will be completely eradicated, it is just going to be reduced to almost non-existence.

So it is up to each and every one of us to do our best to choose good and to choose life!

Yes, sometimes temptations can be insanely appealing and sweet. However, this is just an illusion that evil is projecting. The punishment for evil is death. So you must fight evil within yourself no matter what! We have the power to rule over evil!
