Does pain and suffering disprove the existence of God? Let’s break it down.

One of the plaguing issues of any Theocentric philosophy is the challenge that pain and suffering prove that God doesn't exist. The argument states that and all loving benevolent Creator either doesn't care, or can't do anything to stop all the carnage. Even further, why would God allow the ridiculous amount of Hollywood remakes of movies that were already great the first time?

Yet, the answer to the question is in the question. To acknowledge that there is evil is to acknowledge that there is good. Where else would we get our moral compass to make this determination? If we can discern good and evil, we must accept the existence of a moral Lawgiver who creates the standard by which we measure.

Even so, simply correcting illogical thinking doesn't miraculously make a child dying of starvation an acceptable occurrence. Sin entered the world through Adam's disobedience, thus thrusting us into our current state. It we who invite evil when we step out of obedience to God's commands, and continually invite that on ourselves through our own disobedience.

Through the fog of war, destruction, and disease, we cry out for a Redeemer, drawing us closer to Christ seeking alleviation from the effects of suffering.

It is also through our sufferings that we are "able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God," 2 Corinthians 1:4.

Each one of us is born with a conscience implanted by God, which is how we know that murder is wrong, and child molestation is evil. Rest assured, God does exist - that's why there has never been a blasphemous remake of the Goonies.
