TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO
Dave: Evil exists in our world, and that’s a hard thing to reconcile with a loving God
Jeff: Many atheists say that if God really was smart he would’ve designed creatures who could do any evil.
Dave: What would that look like?
Jeff: Well, it would a bunch of robots! LOVE is the greatest good that exists. But to be able to love…
Dave: a creature has to be FREE to choose.
Jeff: Yes! and because God wanted us to be able to love, he gave us free will
Dave: And with freedom, comes the possibility of choosing to do evil
Jeff: That’s right. C.S. Lewis, in his book Mere Christianity, says, “Some people think they can imagine a creature which was free but had no possibility of going wrong; I cannot. If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad”
Dave: And that’s why evil exists – so that we can be free to love!
