Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves?

On the Ropes Message Series
Have you ever finished watching the evening news with all the violence and injustice in the world and in frustration asked, "Why isn't God doing something?" Why do the wicked and the dishonest people prosper? Well, that's not a new feeling. A prophet named Habakkuk felt that way around 620 B.C. and wrote a book about it.

Habakkuk's name means to "embrace" or "wrestle." His name has something to do with the message of his book. He was wrestling with a difficult issue: If God is good, then why is there evil in the world? Why do the evil prosper? What is God doing in the world? And the bigger questions: What is our responsibility? How do we as Christ-followers respond?
