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.

    Hello and thank you for your question. The mission of our site is to answer factual questions about Christianity. We are not able to answer more personal questions. We invite you to consult your local church, pastor, priest, mentor, or other trustworthy counselor. However, the root of your question - how an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God could allow evil to exist has already been addressed on the site. Sep 16 '15 at 11:41
