Probably no charge has been made with greater frequency or with more intensity against the Christian faith than that the existence of evil cannot be harmonized with the existence of the infinite God of the   Lecture 20 - Responses to Suffering and Evil: Lamentations and Wisdom Literature Overview. This lecture begins with the Book of Lamentations, a short book of dirges that laments the destruction of Jerusalem and moves on to introduce the third and final section of the Hebrew Bible - the Ketuvim, or “Writings.”

      A. The Problem Non-Christians almost always raise the question: If God is good and God is great (all-powerful) then how can there be evil in the world? Since there is evil, there must be no God. Or if there is a God, he must not be good or he must not be all-powerful. I think we need to deal with a couple of issues: Is this a good argument against the existence of God? Pain and suffering are the result of evil, not the cause (Genesis ; Romans ). Satan reverses that truth and would have mankind believe that God is the source of evil and must be placated.

    That’s what C.S. Lewis considers with an elegant sidewise gleam in an essay titled “Divine Omnipotence” from his altogether fascinating book The Problem of Pain (public library) — a scintillating examination of the concept of free will in a material universe and why suffering is not only a natural but an essential part of the human C.S. Lewis’ The Problem of Pain is another attempt at Christian theodicy, the defense of God’s goodness in the face of the world’s evil, written by the well-known pop theologian and author
