Why Would God Allow a Rapist to Exercise His Free Will But Deny the Free Will of the Victim? (Video)

J. Warner Wallace answers questions following a presentation at Ohio State University. If God allows certain forms of human evil to protect the free agency of his created beings, why would he allow someone to act freely at the expense of another’s free agency? Why wouldn’t God preserve everyone’s free agency? Does the fact that a victim’s free will is limited in an act of evil eliminate this common defense offered by Christian apologists? Be sure to check out Eric Chabot’s ministry on the campus of Ohio State.
