My friend Chang Yuon wrote a very insightful article a while ago concerning God and the problem of evil. This can be a very emotional topic and I can understand why many Christians say that God COULD NOT HAVE CREATED EVIL. But, is this really the case? If we are to understand that God is sovereign over all of creation, how can we reconcile his sovereignty with evil somehow simply springing up out of nowhere?
