- By the Gulag wall.
For God to create us as human, He must give us the space for faith. If God stopped evil from happening, then we would not have the freedom to do evil, and hence, we would not have the freedom to do good either - anymore than a programmed machine does. If God stopped evil, then we would know that God exists, and so would not have the freedom to believe in God, or have faith in God (or in anything else either). I do not believe the Sun exists. I know the Sun exists. Therefore the Sun cannot give me any freedom or moral agency.
