Struggling with big questions

For the past two weeks I've been in a class that was titled "God and Human Suffering." It addressed the theodicy question inherent in the Christian tradition. That question rests on three assertions that are in tension with one another:

1. God is all-powerful.
2. God is all-good.
3. Evil is real.

For my final paper for the class I chose the option to write my own argument on this issue. It's still a work in progress, but here's where I landed for now.
