I take a WorldView class every Friday afternoon. The past two weeks we've been reading "Know Why You Believe" by Paul Little. We've been discussing all the questions non-believers have and how to respond to them! One of the chapters is titled "Why does God allow suffering and evil." Our dilemma is:
Either God is all-powerful but not all-good and therfore doesn't want to stop evil... or : God is all good but unable to stop evil; therefore He is not all powerful.
A Christian Response: (I love this)
"One reason sin and suffering flourish, results from sin's being treated like a cream puff instead of a rattlesnake. "
That makes me think... so I thought I share it. Please comment.
