An excerpt from "Desiring God.org" entitled, "Seven Things the Bible Says About Evil" by Jonathon Bowers, states: "How can we reconcile God's sweeping control over creation with the existence of such horrors as cancer, famine, genocide, sexual abuse, tsunamis, and terrorism?" The author lists seven biblical affirmations:
1. Evil is real.
2.All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
3. God is good.
4. God ordained all things that come to pass, including evil.
5. Man is responsible for his actions.
6. God did not spare His own Son.
7. Heaven works backwards.
