It's the cost of existing. My preferred way is how God has it now, everyone can choose evil, or they choose good. If one of those three girls was my daughter I would thank Jesus that she was found, go look after her, pray for the man that kidnapped her that his soul find Jesus, and hope they lock him away in prison for the next 100yrs.[QUOTE who="AnnieJ"]<quo ted text>
Would this bring comfort to you if one of those girls was your daughter?
How about if your sister was raped and beaten repeatedly for 10 years?
Would that appease you...knowing that God allows evil and good to happen...just so that he can allow free will?
Again...what if one of those 3 girls was your daughter...your sister...your best friend?
Would you see anything wrong with that? Try telling that to those 3 women plus the child...that you see nothing wrong with God allowing their captor to have his free will.
What the alternative? be bitter? bitterness only robs the enjoyment of life. life too short for that.
