“I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightening. See, I have given you authority…over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10: 17-20). These astounding words spoken by Jesus in the midst of his Galilean ministry are like a declaration of war by a King over his adversary; a King who is determined to take back what was unjustly taken from him. Was Jesus deceived, or was he divine? Is there an Evil Power that we must confront as Jesus obviously did...or is evil an illusion, the spiritualization of anti-social behavior? There is nothing which reveals the similarities and differences between worldviews and philosophies more than the problem of evil…and our dreams of justice, goodness, and setting the world right. We can divide the rival conceptions of God into roughly three groups…those who believe that nothing is God, those who believe that everything is God, and those who believe that God is God (the One who made everything out of nothing).
