You've questioned why a loving God would allow children to starve; people to drown in hurricanes; people to be brutally murdered; terrorist attacks to happen; etc... amirite?

It's because God gave people free will.

@cookiedough It's because God gave people free will.

God gave free will yet he knows exactly what is going to happen, but doesn't prevent it. All loving, ha

Free will means giving you the choice to do what you want. Not giving you the choice to do what you want unless you do something I don't like then you can't do what you want so really you can't do what you want.

Well God doesn't cause terrorist attacks or murder; in fact He firmly hates them.

we face tests and trials
it's a part of life

helps us appreciate the happy times more too
I mean, would life be as fulfilling without the blood, sweat, tears that come with hardships? What about not knowing what's it's like to overcome a hardship?

I'm not disagreeing with hardships - without them we wouldn't know what happiness was. I just question pointless death.

I wouldn't say death is pointless
or that any particular type of death is pointless

not everyone dies naturally

plus, we're compensated for our pains

I saw this video that was really sad of this man like shouting and crying out the names of all these young children that had been raped and murdered by child molesters and that the child molesters got away and he was saying like, why would God let these innocent children be raped and hacked up and murdered while the person who did it was alive, free or in jail. Idk I always think of it when people say stuff like "I wouldn't say any particular type of death is pointless" and that we're compensating for our pains.

I have questioned it, but came up with the fact no one can understand God. He doesn't do things based on logic; there is a spiritual world so there are spiritual meanings to everything.

God is either all-powerful or all-good, but no way both.
(Either that or non-existent.)
