Criticisms of God on the Basis of the Existence of Evil and Suffering
The God of the Bible is supposed to be both loving and all-powerful. Despite these characteristics, God seems to be unable or unwilling to prevent the vast amount of evil and suffering in the world. Why would God allow natural and moral evil into His creation? Are the skeptics correct in saying that a loving God would never allow evil to exist?
