Questions about reacting to evil in light of God’s use of evil, whether goodness entails purpose, and how to respond when charged with the “No True Scotsman” fallacy.


  • How should Christians define or react to evil if God uses evil for good purposes?
  • In order for something to be valued as good, must it have a purpose?
  • When an atheist uses a Christian’s actions against Christianity, and I respond that he isn’t really a Christian, how should I answer the charge that I’m committing the “No True Scotsman” fallacy?
