Those who profess a belief in an interventionist deity struggle with the 'problem of pain'. Xtians particulary as their holy books implicitly says their God directly acted in ways that could only be seen as evil himself. Theodicy is the ability to rationalise how a good god can do or allow evil in the world.
The Greek philosopher Epicure said it best 300 years before gentle Jesus was mentioned. He wrote.. 'Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? then why call him God?
Theodicy? the ability to not admit the bleeding obvious.
