Why Does God Allow Suffering?

The dictionary explanation

"why" (hwi, wi) Pronunciation Key
adv. For what purpose, reason, or cause; with what intention, justification, or motive, The cause or intention underlying a given action or situation:

Sometimes that is one of the most painful questions of all.

A battle in a war-torn country, women and children killed and buried in a mass grave,the grave surrounded by markers which bore the inscription "Why?"

Disasters, disease, and crime, each destroys our homes,family units, in fact whole civilizations, bringing untold suffering to the masses.Everyone touched by these tragedies want to know why these things befall them.

So why does God allow the suffering?

I mean to say he is powerful, loving, wise, and just. Yet the world we live in, is so full of hatred and injustice.The bible, Gods word teaches that "he cares for us, and that God hates wickedness and the suffering it causes far more than any, who has the gift of life through gods loving kindness.(Isaiah 55:8,9)

Common responses, I am sure many have heard is "Its Gods will", that everything that would happen, including tragic events, have all been predetermined by him long before we existed.How about "God works in mysterious ways" or "He brings death upon people - even children - so as to have them in heaven with him."

But "far be it from the true god, to act wickedly, and the almighty act unjustly!"(Job 34:10)

The things I have heard over the years,the answers that many religions,in my years of searching have for better word of it,"spat" out of their mouths, with very little thought of what they are saying.

The most important thing, especially in religion is to not be taken away with the hype, the emotions and feelings of the heart. For as the bible says" the heart is treacherous, who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9)

An absolute must, is to scrutinize everything you learn, keeping your head, so as to ask the questions necessary, to make a decision based on scriptural facts.

But I digress, do you want to know why people blame God for the suffering in this world? In many cases, those that blame god, think that he is the real ruler of this world. But they miss a simple but important truth that the bible teaches,and that is the real ruler the world is Satan.

Now before you stop reading, due the fact that you no longer wish to read this blasphemous article,use the very thing god gave you, think about it, it makes sense. The world is only reflecting the one who rules it, of the very personality that is misleading the entire inhabited earth.(Revelation 12:9)
It says in (1John 5:19) "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one."

Satan is the epitome of all that is evil, he is hateful, deceitful, and cruel. The world under his influence, is all these things.
One reason why there is so much suffering.

The second reason why there is so much suffering, is that mankind is imperfect, sinful since the rebellion in the garden of Eden. Its no big secret that we as humans tend to struggle for dominance, resulting in wars, oppression and suffering.(Ecclesiastes 4:1;8:9)

There is also "Time and unforeseen occurrence" (Ecclesiastes 9:11)
Without God as a protective ruler, people may suffer, because they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Still why does he allow the suffering?
God is more than capable of stopping it. So why?
Why does he hold back?
