The Problem of Evil: A Philosophical and Theological Investigation

4 pages | 1080 words

The problem of evil is a philosophical and theological problem that asks how to reconcile the existence of God with the existence of evil in the world. There are many different ways to formulate the problem, but it typically comes down to two conflicting beliefs: that God exists and is all-good and all-powerful, and that there is evil in the world. A theodicy is an attempt to explain how these two can coexist, typically by positing that evil exists because beings have free will or that it serves some greater good.
