    Theodicy in The Urantia Book If God is infinite, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and wholly good, why is there evil or, if that is too loaded a term, even merely pain, in the universe?

Theodicy (literally God's justice) is the problem presented when good people suffer or have bad things happen to them.
