certain forms of Hinduism holds “the view that evil, along with the whole of the visible world is an illusion or maya.” (p.163) Explaining that the entire idea as well as the experience of evil does not exist, though this idea is not accepted, officially, by Christianity or Judaism there was something, according to the book, like this suggested by Mary Baker Eddy as one of the doctrines of Christian Science. There is another thought of this that denies that evil has a substantial reality meaning that it was not God’s intention for this matter to be evil because all things created by God are good. This leads to Augustine’s theory that if things are evil it is because it has been perverted and contaminated to evil. 2. A limited God- God has limitations in his powers which makes him unable to prevent the evil that is happening in the world 3. Denial of God’s benevolence- a denial of the third affirmation of God’s complete righteousness. 4. Karma theories- found in Indian religions it is the view that the evil one suffers in life are the effects of deeds done in a previous life. 5. Harmony Theories- “universal harmony, a harmony that either is believed to exist now...” (p.166) 6. Free-Will Theories- this theory makes an emphasis on free will insisting that free will’s existences explains why evil events happen because people are allowed to make their own choices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
