Omnibenevolence is sometimes defined as "The quality of always choosing the most morally good option out of several different ones." Literally, omnibenevolent means "all-good." The term is usually applied to God.

Problems with omnibenevolence

If God is defined as being not only omnibenevolent but also omniscient (all-knowing) and omnipotent (all-powerful), then this is the foundation for the problem of evil.

Furthermore, defining God as omnibenelovent contradicts the numerous Old Testament verses in which he orders genocide and murder, as well as Isaiah 45:7 Bible-icon.png in which God says, "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these." (emphasis added).
