Mission Hills Church
The Problem of God and Evil
For most of history, people didn’t think of God as a “problem” so much as a solution. But times have changed. Today, belief — let alone trust — in God seems to be hard to reconcile with science, evil and suffering, hypocrisy in the church, questions about the reliability of the Bible...and more. Whether you’re wrestling with these questions yourself — and who doesn’t sometimes? — or know someone who is, you won’t want to miss a single weekend of this series.

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

Two kinds of people listening right now:
// #1 - People who have faith and questions.
//#2 - People who have no faith because they have questions.
On a scale from 0 to 10, where am I with faith in God?
Christians say that God is good and great.
Christians say that God is good and great…but evil exists.
Christianity offers the only complete explanation for the existence of evil, our reaction to it, and the solution for it.
"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. (Mark 10:18a)
The first step in answering the question of evil is defining “evil."
Attempt #1: Evil is the opposite of good.
Attempt #2: Evil is whatever is unpleasant.
Attempt #3: Evil is whatever society agrees it is.
Attempt #4: Evil is whatever is counter-productive.
Our belief in the existence of evil is very difficult to explain without the existence of God.
Christianity says: Evil is whatever is not like God.
Only people who believe in the existence of God can talk about the existence of evil without hypocrisy.
These arguments are not weapons, they’re medicine.
Our belief in evil is evidence for the existence of God.
Where did evil come from? Did God create evil?
If God knew we were going to choose evil, then why did He create us with that ability?
If God is good and great, why did He create us with the ability to choose evil?
If God is good and great, why did He create us with the ability to choose evil? Because our ability to choose ultimately leads to great good.
Great struggle often leads to greater good.
God didn't leave us to solve the problem of evil ourselves.
What's next?
1. Is God calling me to reach out to someone who is struggling?
2. Am I willing to take another step towards trusting God?
