De Divina Providentia

This is the original text of: De Divina Providentia, by Emanuel Swedenborg


How does one take a belief in a loving God and square that with the all too obvious evil in the world? Divine Providence offers a solid argument that allows for free will in human actions, and a Divine love that is always flowing towards us to work together in a way that makes sense.
