Historically, this has been the biggest challenge to the Christian faith. How could a good and loving God allow such evil and suffering to plague humans? This is both a personal question and one the Bible raises as well. The fact is that God can exist, be all-powerful and all-knowing, and be completely good while evil exists. The presence of evil and suffering is not evidence against God. The truth is that God is good and our loving all-powerful God helps bring meaning, purpose and good out of the evil and suffering that is in the world. And it is that good God who offers a way to eventually escape the evil and suffering in our present world.
