    Should we be angry with God because he permits suffering? Can we stop our suffering?

    To whom do you reveal your confidential matters? To just anyone or to your closest companions

    No, we should not be angry with God because he permits suffering. First,we should consider that he is not being selfish by giving everyone a chance to live happily. We need to appreciate that  he did not distroy us.  He gave us intellect and the ability to think so that we could choose to serve him or not. He could have eliminated everyone and everything and saved none and started all over,but where would that leave us? We might not exist and the challenge of his right to rule mankind would not have been answered.He does not allow suffering out of creulty. Why create us if all he was going to do is distroy us? That would not be very Loving now, would it?Why would he make things for our pleasure if he did not want to let us enjoy them?He did not have to give us taste buds, but he did and the various flavors to go along with it. God is Loving and can not be tried with evil things.James 1:13

    I ask myself that question quite often, and here is the only answer that I have gotten to that questions.  Everyone was created for a purpose and noone knows that purpose except for God.  Perhaps the suffering is a necessary part of that persons development so they can achieve their purpose.  It doesn't make dealing with the pain any easier to either bear or see.  It's only human nature to be angry when someone is suffering-and sometimes the only one we can blame is God, and I know he understands.  Just don't let the anger lead you astray.

    I think that we CAN be angry at God to a certian time frame when suffering occurs in our lives. The bible says be angry be do not sin. We can be angry at God because we are human it's going to happen but remembering that God is not the cause of our suffering.

    Suffering is cause by different things, but one thing is for sure that GOD knows about the suffering and ALLOWS it into our lives. There is a reason and purpose for everything that happens in our lives.

    The trouble and suffering in life is to bring us to the cross and realize once again that He is God and He will give us the grace to bear the pain.

    In regards to confidental matters be careful because NOT everyone will help you to where you are going and not everyone will agree with you. Sometimes you have to be like Mary and ponder those things in your heart.

    God is strange.

    To my knowledge none of us asked to be born.

    I have 4 children.  Before impregnating my wife with our fourth child I thought long and hard about bringing him into this world.

    Most of this existence is fraught with fear, pain and confusion.

    He's 5 now and he's full of the "why" questions. 

    The concept of Adam and Eve and a fallen world doesn't really answer the "I" question. God is punishing everybody with life and suffering because of these two people.  We are corporately suffering because Adam and Eve screwed up.

    It appears that it pleases God that we suffer.
