Theodicy and God
If the Abrahamic God is real, then He cares more about the rapist’s freedom to rape, and the murderer’s freedom to murder, than He cares about the lives of their victims.
The problem of evil is a very old, and very real problem, which rejects any pat answers. Especially, when pursued to their logical conclusion.
When people give pat, uniformed, poorly thought through answers they can turn God into a cosmic rogue who is either orchestrating evil or stands idly by while great evil occurs everyday.
Theodicy refuses pat answers. Pat answers simply do not account for the totality of human experience. “God did it” or “The Lord works in mysterious ways…” might seem comforting when things are going OK, or you simply don’t understand how something might be happening, but intellectually, “I don’t understand, therefore, God” or “Who are we to question…” is very poor thinking.
