The purpose of The Problem of Evil is to discuss what evil is, to define it and to answer the many questions related to it.

The student will learn how to answer questions like:

What is the origin of evil?

What makes us sin or do evil?

Why do bad things happen to good people or what is the purpose of evil?

If God is all good, why does He allow evil?

If God is all powerful, why doesn’t He destroy evil?

If God knows everything, He knew evil would exist before He created anything, then why did He create anything?

If God is the creator of everything and evil is a thing, then God created evil?
