Influential Christian leaders including Jackie Hill Perry and Levi Lusko recently discussed the goodness of God in a fractured world, the reality of spiritual transformation, and how demonic forces continually call into question the character of God.
During a Passion 2021 Conference session hosted by Shelley Giglio, Perry, an author and hip-hop artist, revealed that the more she reads about God, the more she realizes that He is “good.” While circumstances are tangible and loud, God is invisible, and thus, it takes faith to understand He is good when things are bad.
“I had to look throughout the Scriptures, and then see that at His right hand are pleasures forevermore, or the fact that while I was in sin … Christ Jesus died for me, or the fact that I’m sealed I have an inheritance in Christ Jesus,” she said.
Though Scripture is clear about God’s goodness, there is a “real devil, a serious enemy, and demonic forces that really tempt us to judge God in accordance with how we feel rather than what He’s revealed in the son,” Perry warned.
“And so I think that’s the task: stop discerning or judging or projecting onto God these behaviors that don’t fit Him. He cannot be anything other than Himself, which is holy. Out of that which is good, faithful, gentle, kind, loving, patient, just.”
