A world with only good fun things going on would be worthless and boring. As known by many, we are merely children , forced to be here maybe because we said in heaven to God , what is good , what is evil ,and in reply he sent us here to learn the difference. Eternal beings surely have the permanent desire to learn that difference on every level of existence and must be taught. The existence is a constantly turning wheel. And the creator surely knows best. This does not mean nihilists , atheists , or others are left out of life , but that all things work together to produce truth eternal. I , personally , believe in eternity and love and truth . Life is real . Live it and do no harm.

I think if there is God then he would put the worst of what there is in the strongest of us all, knowing we could survive and help others to learn to discern.

Depending on whether or not you have faith, God gives us a life to live, as best we can. What's going on isn't down to God, but to, as said, the sins of man/ the evil of the Devil. Somebody once said she believes that God only sends as much as He knows we can cope with. Sometimes I think He gets it wrong!!

But God only wants those in heaven with him who truly love him; not those who only love him when the going is good. Suffering filters out the former from the latter.

The problem of evil. There is no rational answer to this question. There is only the circus act of Christians jumping through hoops in their effort to distract you from seeing an answer. If you like smoke and mirrors, keep asking difficult questions.

Because of all the idiot 'believers' who think that praying to the failure known as "jesus" will make it all better, They "pray" ... and then personally do nothing to help solve the problems of the world. Then, they blame `God`.

God is not omnipotent as some like to claim. He is big enough to fix the mess we made, but not instantaneously. He is actually working very hard to keep creation even going in its present state.
