Why is there so much evil in the world?

Our world is a dichotomy between beauty and disaster, good and evil, and goodness and cruelty.  We all live somewhere in between these.  We all live with the tension of how we know things should be and how they are.  Many look at the beauty of creation and are instantly convinced that a good God created our world.  Others look at the evil in our world and are equally convinced there couldn’t be a good God and probably no god at all.

Do we need to keep asking for forgiveness?

The real question is, “if Christ died for my sins, do I need to keep asking God to forgive my sins?”
