Survey Results: “What Does Good Mean?”

I informally surveyed my friends and asked:

What does good mean? How do we determine if something is good? What is “goodness” in your own words? What is the standard?

Something Evil from the Mouth of God?

Do you ever wonder about God and evil? The problem of evil?
How do we really know that God is good, and what does the Bible even mean, “God is good?”

Upstairs in a cozy corner of the church, my youth pastor put down his guitar and asked a question:

“What are you reading in the Bible? What’s hard to wrap your mind around?”

I thought I had a show-stopper:

God Saw That It Was Good.

What did God mean when he looked at his creation and “saw that it was good”? If you asked ten Christians you might get ten answers!

As Christians, we need to take a deeper look at the important concept of “goodness.” Genesis 1-2 is a logical starting point. In these chapters we find the word “good” twelve times!
