I wanted to bring something up to you as a possible sermon.

Several people in the movement that I have spoken to have lost faith because they have seen so much evil in the world between what is done to animals, and the evil that people do to each other, or have done to each other, the holocaust for example, that they believe no loving God could allow this to happen.

I understand that we can't blame God for what people choose to do, and the reality is that the potential for evil is a consequence of freedom.

God's choice, as I understand it, was that either humans could have freedom and also have the potential for doing evil.

The only way that God could have prevented evil from coming into the world would have been to make people as automatons with no ability to choose, but most people don't understand that.
