Evil and Suffering: Where Does Evil Come From?

A Christian view


Good vs. evil is a popular theme in movies and books, probably because it is a struggle we see around us every day. Few people would deny the existence of evil in the world. But where does it come from?

This is a big question which philosophers have debated for centuries. The question gets tougher if you believe in a good, creator God. After all, if evil is created, then doesn't it contradict God's essential goodness, His omnibenevolence? Or does its existence deny God's power, His omnipotence?

In this film, discover one Christian's take on this ultimate question of the origins and nature of evil.
