    The Bible teaches that there was a very important issue that was raised in the Garden of Eden. An issue raised by Satan against God’s sovereignty, his right to rule. This led to the suffering we see today. Learn what happened in the following link … https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/good-news...

    Jehovah God is not the cause of our suffering, but for a limited time, he has allowed rebellion against his sovereignty. Why? To show that no effort to rule without him benefits people. (Ecclesiastes 7:29; 8:9) After 6,000 years of human history, the evidence is clear. Human rulers have failed to eliminate war, crime, injustice, or disease. (Jeremiah 10:23; Romans 9:17)

    In contrast to human rulership, God’s rule benefits those who accept it. (Isaiah 48:17, 18) Soon, Jehovah will bring all human government to an end. Only people who choose to be ruled by God will inhabit the earth. (Isaiah 11:9; Daniel 2:44)

    God’s patience allows all of us to show whether we favor rule by God or rule by man. We indicate our choice by the way we live. (Job 1:8-12; Proverbs 27:11)

    Adam and Eve sinned. There's more to it than that, of course. But that was the impetus.

    He loves that sh*t.

    It's called freewill and you love it until it doesn't suit!

    Suffering can afflict anyone even those who are favored by God.

    Imagine a young man who lives at home with his parents. His father loves him very much and has taught him how to make good decisions.

    Then, the young man rebels against his father and leaves home. He does bad things and gets into trouble.

    Would you blame the father for what happened because he didn’t stop his son from leaving home? Of course not!

    Like that father, God didn’t stop humans when they chose to rebel and do what is bad. So when something bad happens, we should remember that God didn’t make it happen. It would be unfair to blame God.

    Many religions teach that the sufferings we experience are God's will.

    But the Bible teaches : God never causes what is wicked. See Job 34:10.

    Humans are to blame for much of the suffering. They fight wars, commit crime, pollute the environment, etc..

    Dont compare True Christian's to JWs.

    Answer? Free will.

    If you dislike your free will, blame God for giving it to you, and take it up with Him on Judgment Day
