If Life Could Be Good, Then God is Good

One of the best reasons to believe in the existence (and goodness) of God is to consider what our world would look like if every person lived God’s way instead of his own way. For example, just imagine the difference if:
–Theft of money and property never occurred
–Violence and threats were never used for people to get what they wanted
–Gossip and rumors were never spread about anyone
–Husbands and wives stayed married to each other for their whole lives
–Parents never abused or neglected their children
–Anger never became uncontrolled and led to sinful behavior
–No person ever took the life of another person
These are just a few examples, but think about life in this world if every person obeyed God instead of himself or herself. This hypothetical situation strengthens my faith in the One who intends for life to be good, just as He is good. If a life lived God’s way is much better than a life lived any other way, then the source of that better life must be true, and right, and, once again, good.“
Oh that they had such a heart in them, that they would fear Me and keep all My commandments always, that it may be well with them and with their sons forever!” – Deuteronomy 5:29
“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’” – Jeremiah 7:23
