CHRISTIANS: If God is omnipotent, why wouldn't he destroy Satan, disease, hunger and all evils in the world?

If you truly believe that God created the world, you have to accept the fact that he created all of the horrible things that take place. If he is all powerful, then he had the choice to not create things like cancer and earthquakes. Why would he choose to give people and animals cancer?

If he is all powerful, then he had the choice to not create things like cancer and earthquakes. Why would he choose to give people and animals cancer? Why would he want to create tornadoes and tsunamis to kill innocent people, including babies and children? If he actually controls the universe why does he allow it to continue?

FORGET FREE WILL. Why would God give people the desire to commit terrible acts? Because the VICTIMS are innocent. Why would God want to do that to the VICTIMS? Especially victims who are 5 month old babies being raped and killed. WHY GIVE HUMANS THE FREE WILL TO DO THAT?
Update 2: ADDITIONAL: So, for those who say that Satan is in control, that would make him more powerful than God. So, God is not in charge of ANYTHING. Satan is the ruler of the world. Why do people say God is in control? If he can't control Satan, can not control disease, can not control the weather, then he is hardly... show more ADDITIONAL: So, for those who say that Satan is in control, that would make him more powerful than God.

If he can't control Satan, can not control disease, can not control the weather, then he is hardly "omnipotent", he is powerless.
