All Powerful and All Good?

“The philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806–1873) used this argument in his objections to Christianity. He wrote, ‘Not even on the most distorted and contracted theory of good which ever was framed by religious or philosophical fanaticism, can the government of Nature be made to resemble the work of a being at once good and omnipotent.’ He was saying that because of the undeniable reality of evil, he could not conceive of a God who was both allpowerful and all-righteous.” -R.C.
