There are three types of evil that exists in the world that we see every day. There is moral evil which is evil committed by willing people that cause such things as: war, crime, cruelty, discrimination, racism, suicide bombings and injustice. There is natural evil that involves such things as: hurricanes, tsunamis, flood, earthquakes, and so forth. Then there is social evil which are things such as poverty, hunger, and homelessness. In all of this, we often ask of our own suffering and the suffering of our friends as a result of these evils, "Why?" Dr. Merritt explores the origin of evil, it's purpose, and our response.


"Virtues like character, perseverance and determination are only formed and strengthened through adversity, never in prosperity. God's purpose for those of us who follow Him is not to make us happy. It is to
make us more like Jesus Christ." --Dr. Merritt
