Well I don't know that God has done it, but I sure as hell haven't.
Honestly, I have no idea. I have no idea why a good, loving God would allow such a thing to happen. There are apologists who explain theories on this, I've read many. But here, now, I can give no reasonable answer why a good God would allow, as you say, bone cancer in children. I've probably said this to you before, but if I were ever to become an atheist, I would do so as a result of the suffering of this world.
Why do parents have a child? Because they feel the urge to procreate? I doubt it. the desire to love and be loved, it's something I hope to truly understand one day.
I can only take his revelation as word.
So the natural order is allowed to be illogical?
How does one offer verification of the accuracy of a metaphysical proposition?
And ultimately, this is the difference between our thinking.
Hmm fair point. But remind me again how this negates the possibility of omnibenevolence?
Again, I cannot know, I believe.
Well if we take the idea that God is love (a sentiment repeated by Jesus), and everything has its beginning in God, then evil cannot be of God because evil is the antithesis of good (love). The first sin, so it is said, was committed by the archangel Lucifer, who wanted equality with God. He thus rejected God and was cast out. It is said that God cannot abide evil, cannot be party to it if you will. Thus when we sinned (choosing our own interests over God) we too were cast out. The only way for the gap to be bridged was for God himself to break the hold over us that Satan had in death.
The suffering that exists, I believe to be evil. God did not create it, some say it exists as a result of the fall. Why he does not act now I could not say, though Jesus did say he would return. It is for that return that I wait and hope for, while doing everything in my power to fight suffering and injustice where I can.
