The Problem of Evil is NOT a "Problem"

in steemchurch •  last month  (edited)

The problem of evil refers to the challenge of reconciling belief in an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent God, with the existence of evil and suffering in the world. This is a theological argument against belief in the Christian God of the old and new testament.

One writer posed the problem of God this way:

“Epicurus' trilemma”

  1. If God is unable to prevent evil, then he is not all-powerful.
  2. If God is not willing to prevent evil, then he is not all-good.
  3. If God is both willing and able to prevent evil, then why does evil exist?

In today’s video I will respond to this “problem of evil” argument, and hopefully show why it lacks adequate foundation for logical coherence… in other words, it just doesn’t stand up to criticism.

The Problem of Evil is NOT a "Problem"

Closing Remarks:

In closing I will leave you with two famous quotes that speak to our desire for justice amidst suffering, pain and loss, which I believe redirect this “problem of evil” on to the real ground, which is “the problem of good”…

"We are travellers…not yet in our native land"
– St. Augustine

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
― C.S. Lewis

As always, thank you so much for your time and attention. I hope you have an amazing day; God bless you and yours.
