¿DIOS creó el mal?



Un profesor de universidad retó a sus estudiantes con esta pregunta: "¿Acaso Dios creo todo lo que existe?.

-Un alumno respondió: "Si"

-El profesor dijo: "Si Dios creó todo, entonces Dios creó el mal y como nuestras obras nos definen, entonces Dios es malo. Ven ustedes. Una vez más les he demostrado que la fe cristiana es un mito"

-Otro alumno preguntó: "¿Profesor, cree usted que existe el frío?

-Qué pregunta es esa -respondió el profesor- por supuesto que existe el frío. ¿Acaso nunca los has sentido?

-Los otros estudiantes se reían de la pregunta. Pero el estudiante continuó: "En realidad, señor, el frío no existe. Según las leyes de la física, lo que llamamos frío es en realidad ausencia de calor. El frío no existe. Hemos creado la palabra para describir una condición en que hay poco calor.

El alumno continuó: "Profesor, existe la oscuridad"

El maestro quedó callado pero el alumno continuó: "Usted debe saber que la oscuridad tampoco existe. Llamamos oscuridad a la ausencia de luz. Podemos utilizar el prisma de Newton para descomponer el rayo de luz en muchos colores y estudiar sus diferentes hondas. Pero no se puede hacer nada semejante con la oscuridad.

El alumno concluyó: "De la misma manera ocurre con el mal. No existe en sí mismo sino que es la ausencia del bien. Igual que el frío y la oscuridad. El mal es una palabra creada para describir la ausencia de Dios, la ausencia del amor. Dios no creó el mal.

El hombre puede apartarse de Dios. Entonces su comportamiento es malo porque carece amor.

El mal es la ausencia de la presencia de Dios

Did God create evil?

A professor challenged his students with this question: "Did God create everything that exists?"

"A student bravely replied, "Yes, he did!"

"God created everything?", the professor asked. "Yes, sir," the

student replied.

The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created

evil, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works

define who we are, then God is evil."

The student became quiet before such an answer. The professor, quite

pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once

more that the Christian faith was a myth. Another student raised his

hand and said, "Can I ask you a question professor?"

"Of course," replied the professor.

The student stood up and asked, "Professor does cold exist?" "What

kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?"

The students snickered at the young man's question. The young man

replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of

physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat.

Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits

energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit

energy. Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; all

matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature.

Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we

feel if we have no heat."

The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"

The professor responded, "Of course it does."

The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not

exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we

can study, but not darkness. In fact we can use Newton's prism to

break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths

of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light

can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you

know how dark a certain space is?

You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct?

Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is

no light present."

Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?" Now

uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course as I have already said.

We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man.

It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world.

These manifestations are nothing else but evil."

To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it

does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is

just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe

the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is not like faith,

or love that exist just as does light and heat. Evil is the result of

what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart.

It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness

that comes when there is no light."
