PHI337 Philosophy of Religion Microessay The Problem of Evil There are 3 main themes in the problem of evil. These three are that evil does not exist independently, evil is a parasite on something good, and there is no evil where there is no good. In the aesthetic belief the universe is seen as ultimately good. Therefore, sin and punishment must coexist equally. God would not have created man knowing that they would be evil. Lucifer was not created evil but became evil by own choice and was made a mockery of by the angels. All beings are good. Because something is an absolute being means that they are good. God cannot create something that is not good; He can only create something that is like himself. All beings are like God to some degree. Each being is a different reflection of God. The harmony among beings also reflects the goodness of God. Everything comes from God goes back to God. In the mind of God there is infinity of ideas. God doesn’t create a world that is chaotic. Defects reflect disharmony.
