But, man received the provision of physical death instead. Ultimately, this provision is beneficial to mankind. As Hugh Ross explains,
For humans, God uses physical death as one tool for restraining the spread of evil. Wicked people are limited by physical death in the amount of malice and evil they can spread. They are also limited by death in the number of righteous people they can torture and kill. The Genesis Question (Ross, 2001).

Brother Riser, I like this apologetic thread, but what about George Soros, the evil communist who is 90 yrs old and has done and is still doing a lot of damage to counter Christian values?
I don’t know Soros, except what I have heard in the conservative media. However, no matter what Soros does and it may seem as though the “damage to counter Christian values” is not corrected, eventually all wrongs will be righted.
