Bible Quotes
The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.
(Genesis 6:5-7) ESV

Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. ...
(Psalm 37:1-10) ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
(Proverbs 6:16-19) ESV

The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
(Ecclesiastes 12:13,14) ESV

You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.
(Matthew 5:21-22) ESV

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
(Matthew 7:21-23) ESV

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, ...
(Matthew 25:31-46) ESV

And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.
(Matthew 25:46) ESV

But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.
(Luke 12:48) ESV

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
(John 8:44) ESV

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 6:23) ESV

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
(Romans 13:9) ESV

The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,
(1 Timothy 1:10) ESV

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
(1 John 1:8-10) ESV

Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
(Jude 1:7) ESV

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.
(Revelation 21:8) ESV1

Why do Evildoers Prosper?

I often hear people question why do people prosper in this world even when they are some of the most wicked people. This often happens when people become discouraged with the way things are going the world about them. As a song that we often sings states, we often "wonder why others prosper, living so wicked year after year." The song goes on to state that "we’ll understand it all by and by." But I believe that by looking at the Scriptures we can come to some understanding of this now.

I don’t believe that it can be denied that the wicked upon this earth do prosper physically. One can easily confirm this by looking about and observing others. The inspired writers of old were able to observe this fact (Job 21:7-15; Psa. 73:3-13). They observed that the wicked lived long lives, became powerful, lived in peace and safety, became wealthy, and had everything they could possibly want. It appears that this is also true today.

I am afraid that many people who seek a reason for the prosperity of the wicked, are plagued by a misconception of how God deals with man in this physical world. They like to think that God rewards the righteous physically in this life and punishes the wicked in a similar manner. If one holds to such an idea, I can certainly see where he would be confused when observing the physical condition of the wicked. The fact that one prospers physically, however does not indicate whether he is approved or disapproved by God. We are told that "He makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matt. 5:45).

One who holds to the idea that God should physically punish the evil doer is also in danger of accusing God of injustice when the wicked are not so punished. This is what happened in the days of Malachi. They accused God of showing favoritism toward the wicked and neglecting righteous judgment (Mal. 2:17). They also claimed that it was of no use to serve God, because the wicked fared much better (Mal. 3:14-15). They were disappointed with God’s system of judgment.

A fact that we must face up to is that God does not necessarily punish the wicked while they are still on this earth. It is certainly true that the wicked sometimes have to suffer the consequences of their actions, but that is not necessarily divine punishment. God, however, has chosen to allow the wicked to prosper on the earth and render judgment upon them later. The fact that the wicked prosper in this world, does not mean that they will prosper in the next world. God’s justice will prevail.

The Bible assures us that the prosperity of the wicked benefits them only in this life. The writers of old, although recognizing that the wicked prospered, also recognized that the wicked would eventually be punished (Job 21:16-34; Psa. 37:1-17; 73:17-19). They inform us that the wicked are reserved for destruction, their prosperity is momentary, and that they are to the eternally cut off. The wicked may indeed prosper. But they prosper only in this life, not eternally (cf. Luke 12:16-21).

There is another reason that one may raise the question about the prosperity of the wicked. It may be that one is unhappy with his own lack of prosperity, even though he is trying to serve God. I would remind this person that the righteous are content regardless of their physical condition (Phil. 4:11-13). If we truly trust in God and His righteousness, we will not have to worry. God does not promise to make the righteous rich, but He has promised to take care of their needs (Matt. 6:25-34). David said that he had not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging food (Psa. 37:25).

The wicked may prosper, but that should not concern us. Instead, we need to take the gospel to the wicked so that they might prosper eternally, because we realize what the end of the wicked is.3
