This is not about if God exist or doesn’t. If you read the original post it asks how can God………. When a question like this is asked, the unstated premise is God exist.

Why should God allow or not allow anything. We as a human race rejected Gods godhood and placed ourselves in his place. As a race we determine what is good and what is evil and what we think is best for us. To God we are evil and disobedient.

The question should be “Why do good things happen to bad people?”

As to why did God create an angle that would become satin? Change the question to. “Why would God Create any being that could disobey him?” God wants us to love him.

If God created all beings without free will to reject him, then we would always obey him; but that wouldn’t be love that would be servitude. Love can only be if we are given the choice. For example: If you were to give flowers to your sweetheart because you had to not because you respected them, cared for them and wanted to make them feel good, then the act of giving flowers means nothing.

When you are given a choice, it doesn’t matter what anyone knows, the choice is yours.

The question of whether or not God can be all good if He allows evil in the world does not rest on a premise that God exists. If you think a thread is taking a left turn from the intended topic, PM me.

I think this is just an exercise in logical possibility. In this case, I believe the existence of God is a necessary truth for this argument.
