The Atheist are in a real quandary when he tries to argue for the problem of evil, he has to first make a moral judgment that is objectively correct. Objective moral judgments can only be grounded in the transcendent God of Christianity. ... [I]f atheists are going to say that is absolutely evil then you must have an absolute standard of good. Only God can provide that. ...
The Bible reveals to us that God is all good and all powerful and tells us that evil exists in the world. The Bible, because its true is consistent, and therefore those three things are consistent.
The Atheist will claim that it is not consistent and THAT is the nub of the problem here.
Atheists think its inconsistent and God thinks its consistent, who are you going to believe?
Ultimately this is a question of authority. The authority of the Atheist's logical powers verses God' logical powers. Atheists are using their logical powers to show there is no God, logically speaking. What does God tell us?
Bahnsen explains it this way. God tells us that sin has obscured our understanding. That is to say that if Adam chose to sin, Adam would enter a realm of darkness that even he would not understand. It would obscure his thinking, it would make his thinking foolish, it would thwart his ability to understand things properly.
Interesting. I was under the impression that Adam sinned by eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Whoda thunk that knowledge would cloud one's understanding. God is mysterious indeed.
