I have an essay on the problem of evil and my main two arguements are:
- Evil is not seperate from good, but rather a lack of good. Just as dark is a lack of light, cold is a lack of heat, etc.
Thats all fine and dandy.
But my second arguement is a little more confusing. Basically, would it make sense to say that:
God cannot not stop or interfere with evil because it interferes with our free will, which is a quality of our being as created by Him, thus He would be contradicting Himself?
Does that make any sense?
