  • God gave us free will. We chose to live in this kind of world. The decisions our leaders are making are putting us in poverty. Why do babies suffer? Why do they die? Because of the sins of man.

  • Because as the others have already stated, we all have to pay for the sin of man. All men, women, and children pay for the sins of man. Look at it like this, God flooded the world when it got bad but saved the most rightous man right? Well it wasnt only sinning adults that got killed it was ALL people and animals for that matter. God wiped out the world, he took the innocent home and thats all he is doing when a baby dies. When a child is abused and lives I firmly beleive that that child was ment to do something better and in order for him to get to were god wants him to be he had to go through something terrible.

  • we are the curse that stemmed from the only man and the only woman who couldnt follow rules, so their children and all that followed had to be punished like their parents. its funny that those two people dont really suffer from it anymore. they should have been punished personally, not punish their offspring and all the animals and living things in this world.

  • Every bad situation is an opportunity for learning. We need to learn some lessons, I guess, so bad things happen to ensure that we do.

  • Because nature is full of good and bad... God has nothing to do with it.
