Cold Case Christianity

God's Existence

Does the Existence of Evil Exculpate God As the Cause of the Universe? (Video)

J. Warner Wallace, author of God’s Crime Scene, discusses the nature of the universe and the evidence for God’s existence. Does the existence of evil and injustice in the universe eliminate the possibility of God as the Creator? Why would an all-powerful, all-loving God allow evil to occur? Is evil a form of exculpating or inculpating evidence? How can we respond to the “problem of evil” in a reasonable way? Can evil be explained from “inside the room” of the natural universe, or does the best explanation for the evil lie “outside the room”? For more information about this “inside” or “outside the room” approach to the evidence in the universe, refer to J. Warner’s book, God’s Crime Scene.

For more information about the scientific and philosophical evidence pointing to a Divine Creator, please read God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe. This book employs a simple crime scene strategy to investigate eight pieces of evidence in the universe to determine the most reasonable explanation. The book is accompanied by an eight-session God’s Crime Scene DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
