Q. If God loves human beings, why did he create suffering?

A. God never created suffering but freedom. The suffering of human beings results from their freedom to decide and choose. If you think that God should control, or interfere with our deciding and choosing, it means that we, having no right to do as we please, should be like robots that function just as programmed by God.

Before asking this question, do you really believe that God is perfection itself and love itself? If you have absolute belief in this, you should be willing to accept any situation that might be seemingly unfair and unjust as the perfect expression of his love because God never makes any mistakes. It is not because God created his work poorly but because you cannot understand God’s work in the same way that an artistically illiterate person cannot make sense of great artists’ works that current circumstances appear messy. Try to understand God’s intention. The best way to know his intention is to see God in person.
