From the Wikipedia article on the subject:
The problem of evil refers to the question of how to reconcile the existence of evil with an omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent God (see theism). …
The problem of evil is often formulated in two forms: the logical problem of evil and the evidential problem of evil.
Originating with Greek philosopher Epicurus, the logical argument from evil is as follows:
My question is, what is the biblical basis that such a logical problem exists? More specifically, what is the biblical basis that God has unlimited power, has the capacity to know everything that there is to know, and has unlimited or infinite good will or disposition to do good?
Edit: I had hoped for answers that would have taken a more holistic view of the Bible (that is, that these attributes are always with God and have always been with God).
- If a verse states is that God is Omnipotent and maintains the universe in its order, then how and why does God rest? (cf. Genesis 2:2–3)
- If a verse states that God is Omniscient, then why does God ask men questions? (cf. Genesis 3:9, 11, 13; Genesis 4:6, 10; Acts 9:4) or why does God change his mind? (cf. Amos 7:6)
- If a verse states God is Omnibenevolent, then why does God have evil plans or do evil things? (cf. Jeremiah 26:13; Jonah 3:9–10; 1 Chronicles 21:15)
Note: this is not asking for a discussion of how to answer or defend against the problem of evil such as these questions:
The following question is different because: (1) does not contain all three requirements of my question and (2) is only bounded by the general understanding of the term and not by the philosopher's meaning of the terms as framed by their question.
