Reeve

Philosophical Problem of Evil

In the philosophy of religion, the problem of evil leads to the question of how do we reconcile the existence of evil with that of a deity who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent. This critical argument delves into attempts to show that the co-existence of evil and such a deity is unlikely or impossible, and attempts to show the contrary have been traditionally known as theodicies. Yet the LDS faith offers a unique paradigm to reconcile this age old question.

Chris Reeve hosts this episode of we reconcile evil in the world in a way that leaves room for Faith.
