Evil and Suffering

Today I shall be wrestling with evil and suffering.  Here’s the question that popular culture seems to like to pose: If God is good but cannot prevent evil and suffering then He is not all powerful but if He is all powerful and chooses not to prevent evil and suffering then he cannot be good? Either way there is nothing attractive or helpful to those struggling to make sense of a life that seems short, lonely and bewildering.

We can wrestle together and I’ll come back to you with some ideas to kick around later.
