053: Making Sense of Evil and Suffering (w/ Jimmy Akin)

053: Making Sense of Evil and Suffering (w/ Jimmy Akin) April 1, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I’m joined once again by Catholic Answers Senior Apologist Jimmy Akin to help us unpack the problem of evil and suffering.

Why would a good, all-knowing, all-powerful God allow evil and suffering to exist? Why do innocent people suffer? Does the existence of evil make God less powerful, less good, or something other than what Christians say that He is?

Listen to Jimmy Akin, a veteran apologist, explain what the Catholic Church says about suffering, why it exists, and how to understand it.
