God and Evil If God is such a nice guy, why is there so much misery and suffering in the world? Kola Abimbola examines an ancient problem. One of the principal challenges to the belief in God is the problem of evil. J.L. Mackie stated the problem as follows: God is omnipotent: God is wholly good, and yet evil exists. The basic problem of evil in Christianity and other monotheistic religions comes down to the following: If God created the world, and we believe God is all-powerful (omnipotent), all-knowing (omniscient), and wholly good, kind and merciful (omnibenevolent), how can evil exist? In other words, if God exists, then evil should not exist.   All moral beings have, therefore, to do with the holiness of God: to them it is as central and vital as is the sun to the planets; it is the shining glory of God! To good beings, the holiness of God is that on which they rest, the anchor of their security, the source of their blessedness, and the theme of their adoration and praise. To evil.

A vindication of God's moral character: as to the cause and origin of evil, both natural and moral. Wherein the case of liberty and necessity is considered, with regard to human actions. In a letter to a friend.

Adherents of the Abrahamic religions have traditionally held that God is morally perfect and unconditionally deserving of devotion, obedience, love, and worship. The Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scriptures tell us that God is compassionate, merciful, and by: 8.

Supposing God to possess perfect holiness, he would certainly prevent all moral evil, says the atheist, unless his power were limited. This inference is drawn from a false premiss; namely, that if God is omnipotent, he could easily prevent moral evil.

The cross is the vindication of God's righteous character. God can remain holy and just because He has punished sins and sinners in His own pure. No faithful servant of God should take the cheap way out. God’s vindication is more important than our face, our likes, and our years of prayers and hopes.

Moses and Aaron were meek; they submitted to the hand of God. They could have reasoned with God, but they chose, rather, to not argue. They did not pray for themselves even to the end.

His moral character is the standard of good and evil, and His commandments are a reflection of His character, and these determine right and wrong. Moreover, as I argue in chapter 4 of my book “Inference To The One True God”, I think only the Christian conception of God is compatible with this argument’s conclusion.

Every moral agent, whatever influences for good or evil may operate upon his mind, is the responsible author, and his will the responsible origin, of his moral character. On this ground God holds men responsible for their character and conduct. Evil is necessary for the development of moral character.

To account for, and excuse the tyranny of man, many ingenious arguments have been brought forward to prove, that the two sexes, in the acquirement of virtue, ought to aim at attaining a very different character: or, to speak explicitly, women are not allowed to have sufficient strength of mind to acquire what really deserves the name of virtue.

I wonder if everyone who has commented in this thread, realizes that if you say that God created evil, and by this we actually mean moral evil, then you are also saying that God is morally evil, because that would mean that God is the source of moral evil, that God Himself conceived of and produced moral evil.

if that were true then God would. But although moral goodness cannot be necessitated to exist, yet God has attested his abhorrence of vice and his approbation of virtue, by the dispensation of natural good and evil, of pleasure and pain.

INTRODUCTION TO A Vindication of the Rights of Woman At the heart of Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman, are the twin virtues of freedom of thought and devotion to family.
