Ravi Zacharias on the Problem of Evil

 

ravi

In response to the objection, “There cannot be a God, because there is too much evil in this world.” Ravi responded as follows (Can Man Live Without God?, p. 182):

“When you say there’s too much evil in this world you assume there’s good.

When you assume there’s good, you assume there’s such a thing as a moral law on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil.

But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a moral Law Giver, but that’s Who you’re trying to disprove and not prove.

Because if there’s no moral Law Giver, there’s no moral law.

If there’s no moral law, there’s no good. If there’s no good, there’s no evil.

What is your question?”
