He has all power, all might, and all dominion; He is the Almighty. He has all power to do all that he wills to do. He is the Creator of worlds without number. If it were possible to number the particles of millions of earths like ours the sum obtained would not be a beginning to the number of his creations; and the whole sidereal heavens, all of which are the works of his hands, move through the midst of immensity at his word. Truly he is infinite and eternal without limits or bounds. His power is immeasurable, his might is without end, and his ways cannot be fathomed. There is no power yet to be gained that he does not now possess. If it were otherwise, our faith in him could not be other than limited and partial.
The argument is that if God is all-loving, all-powerful, and all-knowing, then the existence of evil is inexplicable, for such a God could create a world without evil—he has the power and the knowledge to do so—and he would create it, for his love would require that he do so. According to the argument, therefore, the existence of God is incompatible with the existence of evil. For many, the suppressed conclusion is that it is irrational to believe in God if one recognizes the existence of evil, as most people do.
