Replying to James Sterba’s argument for the incompatibility of the world’s evils with the existence of a good and omnipotent God, I present an argument for their compatibility. This argument depends on God having reasons for permitting these evils and for not intervening to prevent them. The Free Will Defence and Hick’s Vale of Soul-Making Defence both need to be contextualised in a world of natural regularities that a good God wanting to create free rational creatures would provide. Sterba’s arguments from ethical theory and from the limits of post-mortem compensation are problematised. God is not an omnipotent cosmic by-stander, and predicates used of God need to be appropriate to the level of the creator and the ethics of creation. View this paper
