The Keswick Lectures 14 - David Robertson

The Apologetic of Evil - how evil demonstrates the existence of God

Length: 59mins

If God is good then surely he would want to stop evil. If he is all-powerful he could. Evil exists; therefore the all-powerful loving God of the Bible cannot exist. It’s an old but still common argument against the Gospel. In this talk David Robertson will seek to show that rather than being a reason to disbelieve in God, it is in fact the very opposite. The existence of evil, and the recognition of evil, is in fact a powerful apologetic for the Good News of Jesus Christ, who is the answer to the ‘problem of evil’.
