The Book of Habakkuk – The Righteous Live by Faith (mp3)
The problem of evil, its existence and how God will solve it, is a problem that will evade our understanding forever. We are also, thankfully, not the first to ask such questions. How can God allow evil? Why does he not abolish it forever? What’s more, why does he use evil in the world, even if it is to bring about that which is good? Habakkuk has these same questions, and yet the answers that he gets are not the answers he desires. Nevertheless, he is content to simply trust in the Lord to work good through their wickedness. Can we say the same?
1. The inability of the law
2. The injustice of the Chaldeans
3. The righteous will live by faith
4. The response of faith
