Evolution and the Problem of Evil
One question that human beings come face to face with time and time again, as they face the trials and struggles of life on this earth is the question of evil. Why would God – an all good, all powerful, and all knowing creator – allow evil and suffering to haunt His creation?
As we travel life’s road, we work hard – sometimes too hard – to feed ourselves. In our families and communities, we see illness and accidents take the health and lives of those we love. Sometimes violence affects us in terrible ways, whether that violence is inflicted by chance, or by the intention of others.
Why? Why does life seem so hard? Why does death come too soon?
Through all of these challenges, throughout history, people have turned to a being (or beings) larger than themselves for the answers.
