Theologians and religious philosophers of every stripe are forever bumping their heads up against the “unsolvable” problem of the theodicy–the question of why God allows evil. Beyond perhaps assuring them a measure of job security, I have no idea why they or anyone else should find the theodicy such an enduring conundrum. If you accept as real an overseeing, all-powerful God–and certainly if you accept the figure of Jesus as a manifestation of that God—the theodicy is solved.
Also, just a quick note about Xtranormal.com, the site whose free online tools I used to make this and my other Xtranormal movies. When making Xtranormal movies, you have very limited choices with regards to setting, characters, and voices. For this movie, I chose the character of Jesus (which Xtranromal introduced only yesterday); I gave him the British voice I did because of the three other English-speaking voices it seemed best suited; and for the setting I chose “Airport”—because, again, of those choices offered, I liked it best.
I’ve done this video because I thought it might be a good way to, in a unique (and hopefully engaging) way, bring forth a thought or two central to Christianity. I know illustrating Jesus in this manner is tricky business; as a Christian, I’m certainly sensitive to anything slighting Jesus. I don’t think this does. I hope you agree.
