Why doesn't God solve all our problems? How can I learn to trust that God is in control of the problems in my life? How could a good God allow so much evil? Why doesn't He do something about it? Couldn't God have created a world without evil? Does God tempt us to sin? It's seems to be that way. Why else have the Tree of Good & Evil in the middle of Eden without a fence around it? Genesis 2:16-17, “And the LORD God commanded the man. (woman wasn't around yet) "you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Therefore Eve never sinned - since she was never told not to!

Even if you knew someone would make a bad choice, shouldn't they still have the freedom to make it? To prevent all crime, we'd have to monitor everyone constantly, taking away freedom.
But I understand your point, and I know it's a difficult subject
So if your child decided to jump off a bridge(a seriously Bad choice)you would not interfere?
That's different. Children are, for good reason, not given as much freedom as adults.
OK agreed...what if it was your best friend?
Hmm, while I would hate for them to do that and would interfere, I still prefer living in a society where we can make that choice. People are (and should be) allowed to make many self-destructive choices for freedom's sake.
