Is God Good?

Kinetic type animation that briefly explores the nagging question, “If God is all-good and all-powerful, why is there evil in the world?” Thanks to Cornelie (VO) and Tim Gale (Audio).

Here is a transcript of this animation I wrote:

Is God Good, if He is why is there suffering and evil

let’s assume for the moment that God is all powerful,
this means that God can do anything that is logically possible.
So he can created galaxies and subatomic particles and rain forests and you,
but God can not do what is logically impossible.

He cannot make a square circle or a one ended stick.

So can God make a rock so big that He can’t lift it? No.

So what if When God Created Human beings, He wanted them to
to be free.

Freedom is a good thing but if humans are to be free, they cannot be forced to obey God,
because freedom without choice is like a square circle. It’s a logical contradiction.

No choice no freedom. God didn’t want robots, He wanted real people.

The first humans endowed with the power of free choice abused their freedom

The tragic consequences of their bad choice and our bad choices ripple across the world

God is responsible for the Fact of Freedom but Humans are responsible for their Acts of Freedom.

But lets remember we don’t suffer alone. God will put an end to suffering and evil.

And God became a man to suffer with us. God is Good and he wants real people like you to know him But the free Choice is yours.

    yes thats why he elects people to go to hell, this comment makes non sense in a calvinistic context

    • Thanks Tony. I do not think so does not make sense in doctrine of grace theology.

      Example: Think of a drug addict John. John is able(possibility) to be clean, but if you know about drug addicts, you will know that John is not capable (moral capability) to be clean without outside intervention. Like John, we, after the fall, are addicts of sin. Paul used metaphor of blind, deaf, and dead in Spiritual things.

      God intervening to save those He chose and draw to His Son and passing others is not robotic but grace because those He chose Christ went to hell for them at the Cross. All received God’s righteous wrathful judgment for their sin. It is amazing grace that those whom God elects judgment fell on the cross.

      Did that make any sense. I would love to expound more.

    I believe in God and Christ Our Savior.
    I’d still like to see a One-Ended Stick even so.

    yes there is a god and it will be evil to deny such greater force and being.

    the conflict that i have is with every organized or housed religion ,
