Why is there suffering in the world, that is the big question. The answer is that humanity has chosen to go its own way. God gave us the freewill to make our own choices but the price is that every choice comes with consequences we cannot choose. He created a universe with its own rules that cannot be violated without repercussions. So we are free to be what we want, do what we want and go where we want. We are just not free to choose the ramifications for our actions. Why is there suffering in the world? Because we shake our puny little firsts at God, tell him that we are going to live life on our terms and he allows us to do exactly that. And as the ship sinks, we blame God.
"To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'" John 8:31-32
