A good friend of mine came across the following video clip where John Piper, an influential Christian leader, articulated his view that God causes evil. It is rather rare to hear modern Christians clearly articulate such a view, without qualification. But, in my judgment, that is exactly what the Bible teaches. God is the author of everything, including evil. If one does not understand that evil is actually created by God for his purposes, then one understands neither the biblical concept of God, nor the biblical concept of evil. John Piper, it would seem, agrees with me.
