    James White vs William Lane Craig: Calvinism vs Molinism on the problem of evil

    Play Episode Listen Later Dec 3, 2021 92:54


    Calvinism and Molinism are two very different ways of understanding God's sovereignty. But which one best addresses the problem of evil?  James White argues that Calvinism - God foreordaining all human behaviour both good and evil - is the more Biblical and coherent view. William (Bill) Lane Craig argues that Molinism - a view which reconciles human freedom and divine sovereignty - is Biblically consistent without making God the author of evil.
