The problem of evil is commonly used and is the favorite of the self-deluding people (those who call themselves atheists, skeptics and agnostics).

They say, “If God is All-Knowing, All-Powerful, Good and Loving, how could there be evil in the world? It is either God wants to eliminateĀ evil but has no power to do so or God can eliminate evil but does not want to because he does not care.”

Well, this blasphemy has been the all-time favorite of all those who are still unconverted and is still in their rebellion to God. People who constantly use this argument do not see that they are part of the problem and that God is in fact showing them tremendous kindness by not annihilating them or putting them to Hell immediately.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
