What is the Problem of Evil?

A very short video – just a basic definition of the Problem of Evil..

The logical format into which the problem is put is that of three statements which the theist wishes to take on board, but which seem to entail a contradiction, these being :

 (i) God is wholly Good (omnibenevolent)

(ii) God is Omnipotent (all-powerful)

(iii) Evil Exists
