How could there be a God when there is so much evil in the world?
Dr. Michael Baxter shares his thoughts on the question of how there could be a God when there is evil in the world, which is a question he believes is posed from a position of disbelief. He does not think evil exists because God is causing it, but rather because humans are pulling away from God and creating evil. Dr. Baxter thinks that the real question on the topic of the existence of God with evil in the world is the question of “what does one do in the face of evil because one believes in God”. His answer to this question is that one takes on the suffering of the world in an attempt to alleviate it.
