Sunday Terminology: Sadism


Sadism is the belief that God is not concerned of evil – pain and suffering –  that is inflicted upon his creation. He takes delight on them, or at least, is very unwilling to deal with evil in the world. Relatively, God in Sadism is all-powerful; yet he lacks love and goodness.  In other words, he is quite able to deliver us from evil but he does not. He, in truth, is limited in his power to love and show goodness to the creation. This view is held by most of bitter theists. Some satirical atheists also pick up this idea to ridicule theists.
