Why does God allow anything bad to happen? God has given us free will so we have the ability to affect and change what is around us. There are two types of evil in the world, physical and moral evils. Physical evil exists in the Universe. ex) wind storm destroys the village. Moral, or human evil is only created by humans, all evil in this world is man-made. If God eliminated all evil, he would also eliminate freedom in the process. He created this world good but he allows it to be broken so we can still have our freedom. Jesus doesn’t take away our pain, he transforms it. If there is no pain there is no healing. Mercy is having the time and freedom to choose. Nothing given to God is ever wasted our pain isn’t wasted it is for something greater than ourselves.
