Classic Quote

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

Epicurus – Greek philosopher, BC 341-270

Excellent quote. My thought has always been, God does not particularly care. Good and evil are both necessary functions.
