Addressing the Emotional Problem of Evil
William Lane Craig: "Undoubtedly the greatest intellectual obstacle to belief in God - for both the Christian and non-Christian - is the so-called problem of evil."
Dallas Willard: "Feelings live on the front row of our lives like unruly children clamoring for attention."
Augustine: "There can be no evil where there is no good."
Kenneth Samples: "The atheist, in effect, depends on the objective moral system of Christianity in order to raise moral objections against the Christian God."
In the most recent Christian Research Journal, my article: "Addressing the Emotional Problem of Evil: Why Christians Hope" looks at how we can respond when this topic arises. I encourage you to pick up a copy or become a subscriber of the journal at www.equip.org.
