Is evil and suffering evidence that there is no God? Does evil and suffering prove that God does not exist? Is it reasonable to conclude that since wickedness and suffering exist, that then there is no God?
Some might reach that conclusion but does that conclusion make sense?
Let’s suppose that we looked around and saw many men with no shoes. Would that be evidence that there are no shoemakers? Or, if we saw many homeless people; would that prove that there are no architects and no home builders? Does the fact that there are guns prove that there are no people?
Itwould be just as illogical to conclude that because there is evil and suffering in the world: that gives evidence that God does not exist or cannot exist.
So ok, there is a God, but does not the existence of wickedness and suffering prove that God doesn’t really care what happens to us humans?
Again, some might reach that conclusion but does that conclusion make sense?
Let’s reason a bit. Are all humans evil? Are all people suffering? Why are some evil and some are not?
If God didn’t
So, the logical conclusion is that there is a God and that He cares.
Evil and suffering are not evidence that God does not exist. Still, we may have many other questions about God and what is going on in this world. Now wouldn’t it make sense to keep on searching for answers to any other questions we may have about God and how He does things?
Wouldn’t a loving God help you to find the answers? Most assuredly! Also, please be assured that God will do something about the evil and suffering in the world and that it is not too far at this time.
