"How can a loving God allow this to happen? God is either all-loving or all-powerful, but he can't be both."
You've heard that question, and perhaps you've even asked it yourself. When a loved one dies, we receive a terminal diagnosis, or natural disasters strike, people often wonder whether God is the cause of suffering and why he doesn't immediately take away the pain or fix the situation.
