The problem of evil hardly needs to be described since we all live within its influence and are touched by it to some extent every day of our lives.

But since we aren’t quite ready to talk to God yet, let’s try to define not just the experience of evil but why it bothers us so much and even why we blame God for it.

There is a distinction between the secular problem of evil and the religious problem of evil.  The first has to do with the existence of evil in and of itself (as we experience it) and the second with how religion, specifically Christianity, deals with it through belief in a personal God.

There are many steps along the way and decisions have to be made at key points in our journey.  Let us begin.
