The Problem of Evil in the World

Atheists seem to struggle, deeply struggle, with the problem of evil in the world. If God is all good and all powerful, why is there evil? They ask.

I don’t really struggle with this question because for me, it is only a question for which I have no answer.

Why do we feel the need to have all questions answered here and now?

What I do know about God and my personal experience with Him is more than enough to ensure that there is a perfect answer for this difficulty, but it simply isn’t yet known.

Most atheists don’t struggle, I am guessing, with the question, “If there is no God, why is there love in the world today?” They don’t have an answer.

Sometimes “I don’t know,” is the perfect answer.
