Making sense of evil  

Posted by Denis Haack in , ,

“God with his infinite perspective, and for reasons known only to himself, knows that we finite human beings cannot, indeed must not, ‘make sense’ of evil. For the final truth is that evil does not make sense. ‘Sense’ is part of our rationality that in itself is part of God’s good creation and God’s image in us. So evil can have no sense, since sense itself is a good thing.”


[From The God I Don’t Understand by Christopher J. H. Wright (Zondervan; 2008) p. 42.]
