  • Challenges to Irenaean Theodicy
    • liberty of spontaneity is enough to be truly free
    • are virtues worked for more valuable than virtues given
    • why does an omnipotent God need evil
    • is the suffering worth it
      • only for the sake of God and His love relationship
    • soul making at whose expense?
    • could God have achieved soul making with less suffering
      • there may already be a limit on suffering
    • random evil is unjustified as the process is not completed in this life
    • guaranteed salvation
      • takes away freedom
      • defeats purpose of Christ's death
    • too reliant on growth through suffering
