Sorry, but the excuses the bible gives for massive suffering do not equate with a powerful god, or a compassionate god.<quoted text>
Go on the line to jw.org then scroll till you see (5) the book "What Does the Bible REALLY Teach" then look for chapter 11: "Why Does God Permit Suffering?"
There I'm sure you will find satisfying answers to your questions.
Their is no need for this person to have suffered the abuse he did, and making excuses of the sort that the suffering was needed is sickening. In a way, you condone the abuse and support the abuser.
This twisted philosophy is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
