One of the most difficult aspects of understanding God and the problem of evil is the amount of evil there is in the world.

The Bible is the only holy book that unambiguously states that God existed before the beginning of time, and that time itself even has a beginning. Before God created “the heavens and the earth”, and that God is capable of doing things even before the dimension of time was created.  The Bible along describes God as acting independently of the physical world and its 10 space-time dimensions for he is not subject to length, width, height, and time for he is the one who brought them into existence. Scripture also defines God in ways that defy explanation in terms of… Read More »
