  • 4.3 - God and human suffering
    • Adam and Eve
      • Eat fruit God had forgiven
      • Leaves people wondering why God chose to create Adam and Eve if he knew they were going to be disobedient
    • Iranaeus
      • Suggested man was not created perfect, but immature, needing to grow and develop to perfection as planned by God
    • Evil is necessary for us to understand goodness
      • Because of evil, we are aware of goodness
      • The existence of evil teaches us lessons
    • Test of faith for believers and punishment for the wicked
    • Job
      • God allows Devil to bring evil and suffering on Job. Job remains faithful and is rewarded by God
      • May believe have been tested at difficult times in their lives
