William Lane Craig was on the Christian radio show Unbelievable where he was described as a master of apologetics Craig Debate
is an interesting take by William Lane Craig on the problem of suffering.
Craig said :-
'We can summarize this new version of the argument from harm as follows:
1. If God exists, gratuitous harm does not exist.
2. Gratuitous harm does exist.
3. Therefore, God does not exist.
Now the most contentious premiss in this argument is (2). The first version of the argument from harm posed an essentially internal problem about the consistency of Christian theism, since the Christian is committed by his own theology to the truth of the propositions God exists and Harm exists. But the Christian is not committed to the truth of (2). How, then, will the atheist prove that the harm in the world is truly gratuitous?'
An excellent point by a top Christian philosopher.
How is anybody going to prove that the harm caused by abortion is truly gratuitous?
Do 'masters of apologetics' really think there is no 'truly gratuitous' harm done in the world?
Craig digs himself in deeper....
'All right, but then that makes it all the more difficult for the atheist to prove that truly gratuitous harm exists, for how could he possibly know what in God's providential plan of history does or does not contribute to the ultimate salvation of the greatest number of people?'
There you are.
Abortion and other harms in the world today actually lead to the ultimate salvation of the greatest number of people.
So keep aborting babies.... Every abortion , and every other harm in the world today, is in 'God's providential plan of history' for the 'ultimate salvation of the greatest number of people'.
Truly Craig is a master of apologetics....
