Father Barron comments on God and the Problem of Evil

Father Barron explains, “God is love through and through. God can’t cause the non being which is evil. Evil in a metaphysical sense doesn’t exist. Its the lack of being that ought to be there. God allows evil to bring about a greater good, that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. God wants the great good of free will. He desire us to be his friends not his puppets.  He wants free will. You can’t have free will and not allow the abuse of freewill. Allowing bad, someone like Hitler, so as to bring about the greater good,  Free Will – for creation to have its own integrity.”
