God is HUGE!!!

My friend, JD Walt had this on his website and I thought it was awesome. EssBee...I'm not real sure who this is but I'm thinking they don't believe so much in God. Check this out and see what you think! 

1) If God wants evil to exist he is not all-good.
2) If God does not want evil to exist he is not all-powerful
3) If God doesn’t know that evil exists he is not all-knowing.
Let’s discuss this one a bit. What if you can choose 3 sides of the triangle above? What if in the wisdom of God, God has chosen to limit the expression of his sovereignty for a period of time? What if God limits the expression of his power without diminishing his power at all. (i.e. the Cross) What if we actually do live in the age of the mercy of God, when God is holding back, patiently waiting for all who will respond to his invitation, before expressing the absoluteness of his power? 
What if C.S. Lewis had it right when he wrote this:
When the author walks onto the stage, the play is over. God is going to invade all right. But what is the good of saying you are on His side then, when you see the whole natural universe, melting away like a dream, and something else, something it never entered your head to conceive comes crashing in. Something so beautiful to some of us and so terrible to others that none of us will have any choice left. For this time it will be God without disguise. Something so overwhelming, that it will strike either irresistible love or irresistible horror into every creature. It will be too late then to choose your side. There is no use saying you could choose to lie down when it is become impossible to stand up. That will not be the time for choosing. It will be the time when we discover which side we really have chosen. Whether we realized it before or not. Now, today, this moment is our chance to choose the right side.
God is holding back to give us that chance. It will not last forever. We must take it or leave it.     C.S. Lewis. Mere Christianity
