I encourage you to read and reflect on these three verses:
I think that far too often people perceive the Bible to be a book about getting rid of things (i.e homosexuality, adultery, foul language, idolatry, etc...), but the New Testament gives us the hope that Christ adequately fills us up and supplies us with all things. So, getting rid of homosexuals isn't the answer; the blood of Christ is. Fooling college kids (like Michigan's AD) to pass along what appears to be a great lesson of being careful, appears-on the surface-to be intellectually stimulating; but it was vain attempt to solve a problem that only a relationship with Christ
Now, to tie all that into this discussion, I look at the absense of evil in the same light. It will be eliminated when Christ returns. However, it's not the elimination of evil that people should soley rejoice in; but the everlasting joy of knowing our loving Creator on an intimate level, and knowing that we will eternally know nothing but kindness, love and compassion to a degree and understanding that we can't comprehend at this time.
