Love IS The Answer!
God, are You good? Are You everywhere and know all things? Yes? Then why does evil exist? (Theodicy) Evil: Harm. Injury. And the decision to cause harm and injury. Enter the villain.
What overcomes evil? Gumption? Bacon? A can-do attitude? All good thing—maybe even great—but that’s not the Biblical, or even the philosophical answer. Love: A feeling of constant affection for a person. The great commandment and the golden rule. Enter the hero. Theologian pumps fist in the air. “Yes! Free will to love God keeps Him from destroying evil at this time, allowing us to choose the greater. Or the worse. But choice is indicative in the definition of love.” Thank you. May I have the mic back, please.
