Tomorrow, the USA as a nation is going to commemorate the day as a Memorial Day – the day around 3000 people lost their lives in the terrorist attacks in the Twin Towers in New York City and Pentagon in September 11, 2001. The whole nation mourned and shocked in disbelief that the most powerful nation in the world was under heinous terrorist attack. People from all walks of lives questioned how that could have happened! Followed by the 9/11 incident, Christian faith on the existence of good, powerful, and benevolent God was put under fire. Our faith was challenged. Many Christian ministers and apologists were posed with the classical questions about the existence of God and the problem of the evil in academia as well as invited to debate in public.
In this video, Paul Copan, a Christian theologian, apologist, analytic philosopher and author provides a brief summary of the problem of evil and answers to the questions how good God can allow something evil happen in the world if He is all-powerful and all-good.
