Can the Problem of Evil Be Answered by Christianity?
Far too often I hear Christians say that they don’t have an explanation for why God allows pain and suffering. While it is okay not to have an answer to everything we should at least attempt to know why there is evil present in the world. After all, it is one of the reasons why unbelievers and skeptics aren’t Christians. They claim Christians can’t explain it within their worldview.
As a Christian who has witnessed my fair share of evil it doesn’t make me question my faith in Jesus and I hope you can say the same.
