disease, and a broken relationship, but you cannot give up. That trial is not easy to overcome, butyou can definitely find a way to step up next stage. I am not sure how many more times we are going to suffer, but each experience will create our character that is God desire and our life. God always cares for our suffering, so he is not evil and he will help you to develop a strong person.According to Chapter 7 in the textbook, how might the problem of evil and suffering lead one to the conclusion that moral absolutes exist? Evil and suffering lead to moral absolutes because moral absolutes are created by desires. Moral absolutes are means to justify desires that seek personal pleasure. So, when these desires are impeded by some wrongdoing, this brings about a sense of injustice within an individual. The feelings of injustice imply an underlying belief of moral absolutes. Moral absolutes guide the pursuit of ethical understandings. This is to understand right and wrong, justice and injustice. The feelings of sadness, pain, and suffering that comes to an individual when someone commits an act of evil that hurts the individual causes a desire for understanding of why these things happened. The pain that is brought about manifests moral absolutes through the desire for findinga logical reason. Within humanity, there is this natural desire to find reasons to put logic behind these feelings of injustice, pain, and sadness brought about by various events and acts. These are natural within people and shows that everyone has absolute morality. However, the reasons for these absolute morals are believed to be provided by means that change based on the worldview of the person. Based on the Christian worldview, it is believed that these moral absolutes are
revealed by God and given to us (DiVincenzo, 2014). In other worldviews and belief systems have the belief that humans naturally have these morals and desires and ethical understandings. However, it is universally agreed upon that every various society and culture has unique ethics and morals. But these absolute morals primarily are ethical things that everyone can agree upon together. So, when terrorist attacks, murder, and other wrongdoings occur, people can absolutely agree that what happened was terrible.
