Believers- does it make you angry that God allows such suffering?
I often think about abused children, people who are homeless through no fault of their own, abused and tortured animals, etc… specifically it’s the abused children that make me the most angry with God.
I find myself wondering, on a frequent basis, if God is such a caring God, why does he allow the innocent to be so tormented? Why does he allow evil people to have children and then kill said children? It would be so easy for him to prevent those people from procreating. Why doesn’t he?
I understand about “free will”, but I just can’t understand why he doesn’t stop the worst atrocities from occurring, when he could do so quite easily. How can he bear to watch children be tortured and slaughtered? I don’t get it, and it makes me furious with him.
Do you wonder the same things? Does it make you angry?
