God is All-Good--and opposes evil.

God is All-Knowing--and foreknew evil.

God is All-Powerful--and can defeat evil.

              Why then did He permit it?

 

The Problem as it is posed by the world.

1. God created all things.

 2.  Evil is something.

 3.  Therefore, God created evil.

 

 The Christian Response:

  1.  Evil is not a thing.

  2.  Evil is a corruption of a good thing.

 

The Christian Response:

  1. God created only good things.

  2.  Evil is not a thing.

  3.  So, God did not create evil.

Norman Geisler
