Strange...a God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied seventy times seven and invented Hell; who mouths morals to other people and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally with altogether divine obtuseness, invites this poor, abused slave to worship him! ~Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger

Mark Twain had a twisted view of God. God does not make anyone bad. God created Hell right along with freewill choice. Mans acts are mans responsibility (freewill choice). God forces no one to worship Him (there's that pesky freewill choice again). God has no morals and has committed every crime? Yep...twisted.

I don't know why bad things happen or why there are bad people in the world, but I believe there is a reason for it. If the world were perfect we wouldn't have a reason to be born, that's what Heaven is. When I die it will be one of the first questions I ask God.
