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.
