The fact that "Good" exists, is not proof that God is Good.

God is described as being good.

Theists will point out the fact that good exists, is proof God is good.

And not evil or incompetent as some argue.

Here's the issue I have.

Consider charity.

We can all agree that charity is a good thing.

If I donate money to a food bank, that's charity and it goes to help people in need.

The problem is, charity is in response to a need, in this case hunger.

People needing charity to feed themselves is not a good thing.

Because people starving is not a good thing.

So a good act (charity) existing to correct a non good situation (starvation) does not show that God is a good being.

If God were good, he would not allow starvation to happen in the first place.

Millions of people die every year due to starvation..

God is not good.

As long as one person lives to tell their story God will immortalize even their dust. God is good.
