The problem of pain

A very concise rebuttal of the atheist’s use of ‘the problem of pain’ from the wise Mr Motyer, re-discovered as studying his helpful commentary on Amos.

“A convinced and consistent atheist may well be ready to say that chance rules all, but if he does so he must give up using ‘the problem of pain’ as part of his anti-God argument and he must tell the rest of the world why suffering is universally held to be a problem and not just one of those things.”

J A Motyer, The Day of the Lion, IVP 1979, p31.
