Why Does God Allow Suffering?

Why does God allow suffering? If God is all-powerful, loving, wise, and just, why is the world so full of hatred and injustice? Have you ever wondered about these things yourself?

didnt u read ur bibble its because of greedy eve n long throat adam, hahaha, even animals in the wild. suffer, u dnt think a wilderbeast enjoys being torn apart by a hungry crocodile, suffering like every other thing is part of nature, even plants suffer, 4 everything there is a trade off and for every thing there is an opposite, if there is enjoyment some where by all means some ones nuts sld be getting kicked somewhere, although i dnt enjoy suffering, infact suffering n enjoyment sld not be in the same sentence, i cnt help thinking how boring life wld be, at least for now.

without it, for starters this thread wld not exist, cos there wld be no need for it to exist and thus i wont be leaving this comment cos u wldnt have asked this question, n i wont be enjoying this rear oppurtunity to talk about suffering the possibilities r endless, cnt u see

i hope i have been able to convince u n not confuse u that suffering is natural and prob necessary, tank u pls

This is simple if you think about it; I posted this one another topic but it is about this. The whole thing is a matter of free will, If God stopped bad people from doing things to good people them he is interfering with their free will. Now this is not how He wants it (He never wanted us to suffer, that’s not how he made the world) but it is in accordance to his will. That sounds contradictory but its not. Look at it like this.

God in order to not have a bunch of toy soldiers running about gave us free will. In doing so he gave us the opportunity to not obey him, and even not believe in him. Now if you were God and you made people out of love, wouldn’t you want them to love you? Sure, thing is if they had no choice than it’s not really love. So by giving us a chance to choose to believe in Him and to love Him the love we show is real. But on the other hand we have now the chance to never believe in Him at all nor love Him. This is not what He wants, He wants us to all know and love Him as He loves and knows us. But it was His will that allowed us to not believe in Him at all. Therefore, it is not what He wants but still in accordance to His will.

As far as suffering from other things, like floods, famine ect. That was never how God wanted it to be, we (our forefathers) brought it upon ourselves, and it happens to everyone.

Matthew 5:45 (King James Version) 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

It is a loaded question but can you bear the answer?

Let me assume that you can.

God has created the universe with a firm set of laws. What you do must come back to you, either in your present world or in your next incaration. Call it karma or aything,it is God's law. That explains it really. You are born to the world, with a spirit and events that affect you have all been preprogrammed to happen, from a higher realm. On your earthly realm you can try your will power but if it was not planned for you at the higher realm, it will not work.

God is a bad person thats why.

He created "everything" so Evil & suffering cannot exist outside his knowledge.

God is Evil,

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. -- Romans 6:23

The proper question to ask should've been, "why do we  allow ourselves to suffer?".We humans are the ones creating all the suffering we see around us for ourselves, because we are  slacking in our evolutionary upgrading responsibilities of our individual, and hence, our collective consciousness as a specie, and we will continue to suffer unless we upgrade quickly.

You made it sound as though God is responsible for sufferings. If thats what you meant ,you are wrong, God is not responsible
