: Premise 1: Evil Exists in the World : Premise 2: God is all good : Premise 3: God is all knowing : Premise 4: God is all poweful : Conclusion 1: God knows the evil exists : Conclusion 2: God allows it to exist : Conclusion 3: God could stop it : Conclusion: God is not all PKG

Everything is right as you state, except the last conclusion; seems you are presupposing the mind of God.

Let me suggest to you the Calvinistic view of God from another individual on the net...

"Calvinism focuses on the sovereignty of God and compares it to the depravity of man. Calvinism exalts God to the highest level of glory as the soveriegn Lord who's will is accomplished in the universe and in man. It also recognizes the justice and holiness of God and the required punishment of the sinner who does not fall under the blood of Christ."

You seem to forget that God is perfect, and in being perfect this means perfect love, and in perfect love you must have perfect justice and discipline. God did not create evil. Man's rebellion towards God is his decision, not Gods'. How could we have an authentic relationship with our Creator if we did not have free will?
