- Gregory Boyd in “Is God to Blame” talked about how God limits His own power by giving humans freedom of choice meaning God can not foresee some of events (Boyd 72).

This is another example of a good theodicy because it shows that suffering does happen from freedom of choice like the women who rushed into having a child without really praying and waiting for God’s answer (Boyd 13)....   [tags: God, Bible, Free will, Theodicy]
