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”?

Can An Understanding of Eternal Life Change the Way We See Evil?

If the Christian worldview is true, evil must be assessed through the lens of eternity, not through the limited perspective of our mortal lives. And eternity changes everything.
