Rev. John Coleman discusses the word theodicy and the necessity of justifying the existence of God in the face of evil. He then speaks about the dilemma that students often face when posed with the question of the existence of both God and evil: either God is not all powerful or God is not all good. He makes the distinction between a mystery and a problem and then relates that distinction to the existence of evil.
