I could use your help!
I responded that, first of all, Pharaoh and the Egyptians were doing something very wrong – enslaving the Hebrew people, and that God’s purpose was to bring about an end to the oppression. My wife added that God always gave Pharaoh an opportunity first to repent but, since he refused, sent punishment as a corrective.
Even so, the young lady seemed unsatisfied, and I have to admit, my wife and I were too, because, in essence, we still seemed to be saying that God used evil to bring about good.
How would you respond to this issue?
