Is God fair to His created beings?

Hello,

Thank you for contacting BibleAsk.

God is fair in that He created human beings with the freedom of choice- freedom to do good or evil (Deuteronomy 30:19). Sadly, humans chose to listen to the devil and do his will (Genesis 3). The devil is full of hate and his pleasure is to see the destruction of God’s creatures (John 8:44). Every person that follows the devil becomes evil and will set to harm his fellow men. There is so much suffering and sorrow in this world because humans submitted to the devil and continue to follow him (Romans 6:16).

We cannot blame God for the choices we make. This would not be fair. Every person is responsible for his/her own actions (Romans 14:12).

But the Lord in infinite compassion, offered His innocent Son to die for humans to redeem them back from the devil’s dominion. Christ shed His blood for mankind and carried the penalty of their sins in his body (John 3:16). Thus, all those that accept Christ’s death on their behalf will not die eternally (John 3:36). And God will give them the power to live righteous lives (1 Corinthians 15:57). The truth is that the most One that truly suffered from our bad choices is God Himself.

There is no greater love than this that someone may die for those whom he loves (John 15:13). The Lord creates humans to give them the chance to get to know Him that they may have eternal life (John 1:12). Life is a chance to know the Creator and prepare for eternity (John 10:28).

And one day soon, God will finally destroy sin and will reward every person according to his deeds whether it is good or bad (Revelation 19:20). And sin will not rise again (Nahum 1:9). Then, the redeemed will rejoice in God’s new Earth “and everlasting joy [shall be] upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; [and] sorrow and mourning shall flee away” (Isaiah 51:11).
