This question already has an answer here:
I'm struggling with my faith. We have had multiple hits that have me wondering why a loving God would allow this to happen? I'm hear over and over that it's the devil doing it or it is God doing it for a specific reason. How can a loving God be part of it? It would seem to me that by allowing something to happen it's just as bad as doing it. For example, a child is drowning. I may not be legally obligated but I would be morally. With all these trials, I feel God is cruel. I know he isn't but I say that with confliction because his actions seem to show otherwise.
