What is God Doing About Evil?? "Does God Need Glasses?" part 5

5. The most obvious way to put an end to Evil and suffering is to wipe us all out and start over. God has chosen not to do that. This video says why.
This is nr 5 of the series about one of the heaviest subjects in Theology: -the Problem of Evil. Is there an easy-to-understand answer? The answer is “Yes!” Clear away the cobwebs of folk-lore and fairytale concepts, and read the Creation Stories the way they're really meant: as Philosophical parables!
They show how God can be good and creator of all things, and not be the creator of Evil. Each part is something to think about, yet makes up a part of a bigger thread of ideas.
I have deliberately kept them as short and simple as reasonable, -this is not enough to cover the subject in depth- but enough to get through easily and grasp the point. In any case, length and academic wording are not the same as profundity.
At the end of the day, however, there is only one important thing to make your mind up about - and only you can do it for yourself: Not “what -ism is this?", "who influenced it?" or “what background does this person have?" but the ultimate question that finally matters and the only truly valid ground for accepting, rejecting or believing anything at all: "Is This True?"
