The Fourth Way

Theodicies are great tools to help us see that while we don't know why evil exists, its existence doesn't logically necessitate throwing off belief in the God of the Bible. However, most theodicies have some pretty big holes in them, so adding in another facet is always great. I try to contribute to the issue by creating what I think is a theodicy which comes from an angle only the nonviolent could envision.
