Series:

The God of the Bible is described as allowing and causing massive amounts of death and suffering.
But this same God is described as being good and all-powerful? How can this be true?

Here are three modern examples that show what God allows:
1) Sickle cell anemia. A genetic disease (from Africa) that causes unrelenting pain and shortens life.
2) Progeria, a genetic disorder that causes accelerated aging. The child ages rapidly and by age 8 looks like a 90-year old man with all the usual disabilities and illnesses and then dies.
3) On December 26, 2004, over two hundred thousand people living near the Indian Ocean died due to a tsunami.
Why?
What possible reason could there be for a good and all-powerful God to allow these things?
