Can there be an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God at the same time evil exists? Or asked another way, "If there is a God, why does He allow evil to exist?" In this second episode of our apologetics series, we tackle this question. If you haven't asked it, your friends certainly have. Ready for an answer? Romans 8:19-23 Hebrews 5:14 Matthew 13:24-30 Also, in this episode we touch briefly on the issue of whether or not people have the ability to choose between doing good or evil. Do we have choice? Or are our decisions the result of naturalistic inputs such as our DNA or environmental surroundings (Determinism)? While we don't intend to fully dissect that topic, it is pertinent when it comes to the question of evil. A PBS interview of Richard Dawkins is referenced, and you can find it in the link below. https://www.pbs.org/faithandreason/transcript/dawk-body.html.
