I started questioning god in 1st grade at my catholic school.  I spent a lot of time in the principal's office.

The way I see it, having the freedom to do whatever I want is a good thing. I wouldn't love or respect a God who forced me to be his puppet.

He is able and willing.  People just like their free will too much.  Imagine being forced to believe in God.  You don't want that do you?

Free will...God lets us choose whether or not we want to be evil. He just lets us know the consequences or rewards of our choices.

Some of God's most beloved in the bible were the ones that questioned him often.

 IMO, I wouldn't say he 'allows' things to happen; (it's kind of hard to explain; but there are times when bad things happen......and to good people for a reason.  I believe in some instances, it's to 'test' the bad people possibly commiting those crimes or hurting people and others, it's because it's something that a 'victim' per say may need to go through in order to become stronger and possibly help others by experience.  I know that it may sound stupid or just plain bad for these things to have or be allowed to happen; but that's just how I deal with things that have happened to me, loved ones around me or how I see it in the world.  We all were born with the freedom ability to choose on every aspect of our life so it makes sense to me.  I believe there are many times, God intervenes for reasons we do not understand and times when he doesn't for the same reason.

There is evil in this world, satan is on the earth. We have the choice but if we do not chose at all, we chose evil by default. Evil has consequences, you reap what you sow, karma, what goes around comes around........

I've been a quite existential since 7 when my chuch kicked me out.

Full blown atheist since 16.
