Short Talk

The Creation Narrative and the Problem of Evil

Date recorded: 27 May 2013 | Speaker: Bruce Little


This session conducts an inquiry into God’s moral justification in allowing so much horrific evil in this world. Realising that everything on this earth is allowed by the all good, all powerful God, the question often asked is: If God could stop all the evils in this world or at least the worst of evils, why doesn’t He? In light of this question, it is suggested that an understanding the structure of creation will yield helpful information to answer this question.
