With regard to the problem of evil, three things can be asserted with confidence:-
1. The evil reality of evil, Isa 5:20.
2. The all-embracing sovereignty of the Lord, Eph 1:11.
3. The perfect goodness of God and of his work, Gen 1:31.
There is, no doubt, great difficulty in reconciling these three, yet we hold them all to be true. Indeed, we find them intertwined on the cross, ‘an evil than which no greater can be conceived’ (Hick), which, nevertheless, was predestined by God, (Acts 4:28) and which was the ultimate expression of the goodness of God.
Henri Blocher, in Universalism and the Doctrine of Hell, 285f.
