Job and the Existence of a Good God

This deserves a post of its own, since I have been speaking about Job and a good God here, and here.


1) If God exists, and if he is good, and if he wants us to believe he exists and that he is good, then he should have a morally acceptable reason for causing intense creaturely suffering that is remotely understandable from our perspective.

2) There isn't a morally acceptable reason for an existing good God to cause intense creaturely suffering in our lives that is remotely understandable from our perspective.

3) .: Either God doesn't exist, or he isn't good, or he doesn't care whether we believe he exists and is good.
