How do we explain evil? In our post Christian society, where God has been set aside, most of us do not find the answer to that question easily. Many discuss the issue, but few consider the matter with reason and logic. So it is that some years back I featured a popular chain email that was floating around the Internet, GOD VERSUS SCIENCE. Supposedly, a smart and courageous Christian student put an Atheist professor in his place. Since the point of the email was to make ourselves feel good about ourselves, I criticized that email.
Here, however, I would like to praise the author of this post. If you need a good, concise, Biblical explanation for the existence of evil, I think this is a good one. With careful reasoning and logical explanations, the author examines what we mean we say God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
In a word, no. If you need an explanation, read on.
This subject came up in a discussion at Insanitybyte’s blog with her post, “Mirrors and Conundrums,” which included fellow believers and an atheist. This is a vast subject which I will only be able to briefly touch here with summary statements.
