Geez, Tim. You keep coming up with these simple answers for free, =
you're gonna put a lot of theologians out of work.
That is actually one of the common answers: evil is due to humanity.
The problem, in Christianity, is now we have to reconcile three =
- God is good and loving
- God is all-powerful
- People have free will
which I would argue is possible, though perhaps not obvious.
For Tim, I think the problem is:
- The Universe is Good
- People are Evil
- There is no external, personal source of evil (i.e., Devil)
So, where does evil come from? Did man invent it himself? Is not =
man a part of the universe?
