The Problem of Suffering and Evil Part 3


In last week’s post, Dr. Craig explained how two hidden premises in the logical problem of evil,

1 - if God is all-powerful, then He can create just any world the He wants and
2 - if God is all-loving or all-good, then He would choose to create a world without suffering

are not necessarily true.

In this week’s lecture, he begins by demonstrating how God and the existence of evil are consistent then moves on to the probabilistic version which states that while the existence of God is not logically inconsistent with evil, it is nonetheless improbable.  He then begins explaining the first of three points that demonstrate the solution to the probabilistic version.
