Is God a Fair God?

Updated on September 1, 2013

Is God a fair God?

See results

We struggle to Understand?

Some Christians struggle with this "to see God as a fair God".

If they cannot see God as a fair God they struggle to trust Him.

They will say that if you look at the world around us, at the death, destruction and chaos, God is unfair to let all this happen without intervening, and it also comes upon them and their loved ones.

They will argue that a ungodly man will live a wicked life, then moments before he dies he comes to repentance and goes to heaven, but a better person will live a good life, try to please God and go to church but still goes to Hell because he did not come to repentance.

They will argue that that wicked person may have sent a lot of people to Hell by his actions and may even have murdered people. But the better person did not harm a fly or cause others to end up in Hell, yet he himself goes to Hell.

This is a good argument!

God knew this question will burn in some hearts so He gave us a parable to help us understand.

Lets look what the word says.

The Lord is not a Human?

Isaiah 55:8-11: For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [II Cor. 9:10.]

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.


He has created all things and has His own purpose and design for all things.

God can see the intent of your heart, whether you are sincere or not.

Your life in His hands!

I want to ask you a question?

If you get onto an aeroplane to fly from South Africa to England, do you ask for the pilots qualifications, hours of flight experience ect? No! Of course not, yet you sit back and enjoy the flight.

You place your and your loved ones life into hands of a total stranger and you believe that you will have a safe flight.

But God Almighty who created these pilots and all that is, you do not trust! God is the only one that can guarantee that you will have a safe flight.

So come on, if the Lord says that He will protect you, He is willing and able to do just that.

Without faith we cannot please God.

We trust in so many things but today I challenge you, trust in Jesus.

We need faith in all we do and are.

Let’s look at faith, so that we can trust in Him unconditionally!

The Beginning!

Let’s go back to the beginning of Mankind. God created man to rule over the seen world. Man was the top of God’s creation but then Man sinned and in sinning he gave his power, his domain and all its privileges to that snake the Devil or Satan.

The Devil legally got all that belonged to mankind. That is why it is written that the world is under the rule of Satan.

The earth belongs to the Lord but the world and the powers thereof belong to Satan. That is why God sent Yeshua as a redeemer to legally save us from his rule over us through sin.

God can only regain the power He gave to mankind in a legal way.

Through the sin of one man, the power that God gave us was transferred to Sartan. Through the sinless life of Jesus and His victory over death, this power was restored to mankind. You only need to accept the death and resurrection of Jesus and to recognise Him as God’s only son to inherit this restoration of dominion.

Only humans have the legal right to be born into and to live and to rule the earth. That is why God sent His only son in the flesh, the legal way to be our saviour. God in the flesh had to go to hell to claim back the key of life that Satan had legally taken from mankind. Yeshua had to give up His life, so he could die and go to hell.

Jesus had to become sin for us because without sin he could not enter hell. He took our sins and gave us righteousness in exchange. He went and he got the key back legally and now we are entitled to have Dominion over life, if we are in Him.

God the Father made a way for us to be saved by Jesus and it is our choice to except it or not. God the Father placed all his anger on Jesus at the cross, there is nothing left in Him.

God is not unfair to those who choose not to accept Yeshua. If you have wealth and riches and lack nothing and I ask you is God fair, you will immediately say "yes", but if I take it all away, and ask you again, you will probably say "no".

Some people see God as unfair because they struggle in life and lack the basics, and it seems that God is unfair to them because they are not getting the same as the rich people.

When it goes well they pray to God and when it goes bad, the same people will curse and shout at God that He is unfair.

These people lack knowledge in God’s Kingdom and some think that everything must be handed to them on a tray. Some have the attitude of "God made me and He must look after me", while they lay at home, to lazy to live.

God is perfect and so His fairness is and will always be fair in total perfection.
