Tonight I hold my dog in my arms

Tonight I hold my dog in my arms and suddenly am aware that like so many canine companions before him, the time will come when his body gives in, when the pain of cancer or whatever finally takes him from me will be unbearable. Of course he could outlive me; in either case the problem of evil is there for me, as real as his life itself.

“The problem of evil only exists for those who believe in God. This is a God who is held to be both unlimited in power and in benevolence/love.”
