The Problem of Evil


Someone asked if it is God’s will when evil happens.

I suspect it is God’s will that we have the right to reject Him and choose evil, because He wants us to have the related ability to freely choose the love, grace and rule He offers us.

I also suspect that He grieves with us at what some have done with those choices.

  1. There is a great book I highly recommend on the issue of God, evil and suffering. It’s called ‘How Long O’ Lord’ by D.A. Carson. There is even a Kindle edition. Great read. Gets into the theology of evil and suffering with a Holy and Righteous God without becoming unbalanced or having every answer. Also, he backs his conclusions with scripture which is always a plus for me.
