Why Is There Suffering?

A guy came in for food for his step-daughter and in the course of our chat he raised the question of suffering and said there was no God. why does god allow suffering

I wasn’t going to let God be slandered over his faulty understanding, so I gave him the whole story, starting from the Garden of Eden, and explaining about Satan and how Jesus came to destroy his works. He wasn’t convinced, then went off at a tangent, asking how the problems from interbreeding (incest) didn’t arise straight away from Adam and Eve onwards. I explained that God would have allowed for a strong gene pool at the outset, but he wasn’t convinced about that either.

On the positive side, he said he’d enjoyed that chat and might come back again for another.
