There are four possibilities:

  1. God is NOT able to stop evil and does not care to.
  2. God is NOT able to stop evil, though He would stop it if He could.

Mankind of every generation and culture is getting an unforgettable, firsthand experience with sin and death. But why? What good can come of this? Listen to this important podcast to scripturally answer these age-old questions.
