Enduring Evil

Dr. Paulson makes a transition into his chapter on evil. He and Caleb discuss the difference between overcoming evil and enduring it.

Here, he makes an essential distinction between Christ's conquering of evil and our endurance in faith. These ideas expand the first few pages of Luther's Outlaw God chapter 9. Of particular interest is the issue of answering the "why" of evil. Caleb and Dr. Paulson discuss bad attempts at answering this question. Notable examples include the idea that evil enables goodness or that God makes a wager that the potential for good outweighs the consequences of corruption.
