Christian worldview tells us what is evident form the fall is that evil exist in our world because we were created with free will. Which gave us the choice to serve God or serve ourselves (CWV-101 Lecture 6). Now with suffering and evil, we can maintain the knowledge of God it makes us realize who Godis.Imagine that a close friend has just suffered through a great personal loss (death of a loved one, natural disaster, disease, job loss, divorce, or a broken relationship) and your friend asks you why God would let such a terrible thing happen. How would you respond to your friend?
I am not sure how I would approch this. I would try by explaining That is all part of Godsplan. He takes people when he is ready for them in heaven. If it was a divorce or a brokenrelationsip I would say God knew it was for the better. If it was because of a lost job I would explain that God knew there is something better for them and wants them t o be open to find it. God allows us to suffer for us to be better people. According to Chapter 7 in the textbook, how might the problem of evil and suffering lead oneto the conclusion that moral absolutes exist?References:
