In this podcast, J. Warner examines the difficulty involved in responding to rhetorically powerful objections based on the problem of evil. Jim talks about the need for a cumulative evidential response, and then provides six considerations to help you prepare a defense.

    Hi Jim,
    Thank you for all the great content. I really appreciate your approach and ability to simplify topics. I wanted to ask you to clarify something. I was listening to your podcast on evil and you mentioned the category of “Natural Evil”. When I think of an evil act, I see it as a person or group that has intent to cause harm to another person or group. Obviously a tornado or earthquake has no intent to cause harm, but wreaks havoc none the less. While it is tragic to see what happens during natural disasters I would not be inclined to call it evil. Would you mind clarifying this comparison or addressing my question. I am really thankful for your ministry and all you do to share the love of Christ.
