An Approach to the Problem of Evil

The so called “problem of evil” is a favorite among Philosophy 101 professors in attacking the faith in an omnipotent and omnibenevolent God.  If God is all-powerful and all-good, then why does evil exist?  Their argument points out that the existence of evil cannot be reconciled with the existence of such God.  This “problem” argues that God is either not all powerful and therefore is unable to stop evil, or He is not all good and therefore He allows or even causes evil.  This argument is nothing more than a philosophical weapon in the armamentarium of depraved humans “who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth” (Rom 1:18).

Here is how pastor Voddie Baucham approaches this question, in an entertaining but powerful way.  Enjoy 🙂

      • Excellent approach by Voddie to put the discussion into proper perspective. I believe Voddie is the pastor I’ve heard Paul Washer cite a few times….usually something about God-honoring labor.
