Dear Anonymous at 1:23 pm,
God allows ALL those things to happen because He respects the freedom of man. God is not going to FORCE people to follow His commands, which is the reason why sin and vice are still being committed.
Nevertheless, the NCW stands not because of sin but because we are part of the Catholic Church, which was built by Christ. Jesus built a church for sinners. Since the beginning, the Church had always been filled with sinners. And the Church stood for over 2000 years not because faith and reason sorted the good from the bad. After all, the Church TODAY is still filled with bad people. ALL of them are sinners. The Catholic Church and all the organizations within her (such as the NCW) still stand because Christ is the Head and leads His Church where He wants it to go. The Church and all the organizations within her (which includes the NCW) still stand because Christ made a promise that it would.
Sin and vice will always exist, but only God has the power to turn something bad into something good. After all, the greatest evil was committed against His only Begotten Son. Killing an innocent man is evil, but from His death came the redemption of mankind. So, you see.....despite that we killed Christ (a bad thing), God allowed it to happen so that something good (mankind's redemption) can take place. Only God has the power to do with this.
The Catholic Church is a hospital for sinners. The purpose of the Church is not to sort the good from the bad. Why? Because ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The purpose of the Church is to heal sinners so they become holy saints. It is only Christ through His Church that accomplishes this feat of turning sinners into holy saints. Only God has the power to take a sinner and sanctify him/her into a holy saint. The Church is a hospital for sinners, and God is the physician who comes to heal.
