Dan Wasserman’s Aug. 16 editorial cartoon regarding 1060 AM’s “Try God” billboards asks: If there is a good God, why does he not eliminate the world’s problems?
Evil and suffering did not originate from God. The book of Genesis explains that everything God made was good. To enjoy the perfection God created, human beings had to remain in harmony with God. But Adam and Eve’s sin ruptured the relationship and allowed evil, and thus suffering, to enter the world, precluding their descendants from ever living in the perfect world God had intended.
