Re: If God is loving, good and omnipotent, why is there so much evil, pain and suffer
Like others have stated, having a discussion on why suffering happens and how it relates to us and God, without using the bible... Is a tough mold to try and fill. But think about this: If the bible could be used in discussion, we could gladly point out to you an explanation of how Satan is a larger part of this suffering condition we have. Because if the bible is true, and God does exist, then so too does Satan. Jesus cast out demons, as well as other miracles, so it goes to reason demons and Satan are still doing evil things in this day and age.

John 10 (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
